    Brain teasers

    It's New Year's and everyone always vows to excercise more. Here's a thread to excercise the gray matter. We can start with an easy one...

    You are flipping a coin. 11 out of 15 times it comes up heads. What are the odds that coin will come up heads on the 16th flip?
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.
    False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
    Compassion is the basis of all morality.
    The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.

    Odds on the 16th flip are 50-50. If you rephrase the question to say, "I'm going to flip a coin 16 times, what are the odds I'll get heads 12 times?" it's a different thing.

    Heh. True!!

    Ok, I told y'all it was an easy one!!

    Here, try this:

    A man comes to a fork in the road. There are two men there, one whom always lies, the other whom always speaks the truth. The first man may only ask one question (not to each man, one total) to determine which way he should go. What is the question he should ask?

    You ask one man "Which way will he (the man you are not speaking to) tell me to go?", and then go the opposite way.

    Point to one of the roads in the fork and ask, "If I ask you brother if this is the way to the Van Halen concert will he say yes or no?"

    The VH concert is indeed the preferred destination, but how do you know which is the liar and which is not?

    The brother who lies will know his brother would say the right path so will lie and tell you the wrong path. The brother who tells the truth knows his brother will lie so also tells you the wrong path. Clear??
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
