I don't know how I just now found this site, but it's awesome. I'll start by posting a favorite riddle that no one ever seems to get.

A group of wise men is together one evening talking about things that are good, and they arrive at the fact that true love is the greatest entity in the universe. These same wise men also say that $1.00 is more valuable than that same true love. How can they prove that?

You also might try going to a store, picking out a $1 item, and when the cashier expects payment, you say "Please accept my true love for this." If it doesn't work, the $1 must be more valuable. <_<

True love is the greatest entity....So, nothing is greater than ture love...means

nothing>true love

again, $1>nothing.....so, $1>true love

Or they could be tennis players, where "love" indicates a score of "zero".

That a group of wise men would consider a tennis score of zero to be the greatest entity in the universe would, I think, call into question their wisdom. :D
