#313309 Think about these

Posted by ghunter32 on 02 January 2012 - 04:07 AM

1. Let's say (hypothetically) there is a bullet, which can shoot through any barrier. Let's say there is also an absolutely bullet-proof armour, and nothing gets through it. What will happen, if such bullet hits such armour?

2. Can a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?

3. Your mission is to not accept the mission. Do you accept?

4. This girl goes into the past and kills her Grandmother. Since her Grandmother is dead the girl was never born, if she was never born she never killed her grandmother and she was born.

5. If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, "it will be twice as cold tomorrow,".... What will the temperature be?

6. Answer truthfully (yes or no) to the following question: Will the next word you say be no?

7. What happens if you are in a car going the speed of light and you turn your headlights on?

8. I conclude with this challenge:
Let the God Almighty create a stone, which he can not pick up (is not capable of lifting)!

1. Let's say that the armor is 10 cm thick (or however thick it is). Since the bullet is capable of shooting through anything, when the bullet hits the armor it will penetrate 5 cm of that armor. The bullet still gets through half of the armor (true), and does not penetrate the armor at all (true).

2. Yes he can. But whether he dies or not is another problem.

3. No. There's no point in accepting a mission that is bound to fail from the start.

4. I agree with the previous posts. Go to the time when the girl was already born, and there should be no problem at all.

5. "Twice as cold" is rather subjective. Instead of measuring the temperature, maybe we can try this: if today I wear a coat, maybe tomorrow I should wear two coats.

6. "Yes" is false, "No" will confuse the asker.

7. I will travel together with the light from my headlights.

8. "God has the power to create anything. He also has the power to lift anything. Can he create something that he cannot lift?" this is a very nice paradox. If he is a God, then he is (supposed to be) able to create anything. He is also (supposed to be) capable of lifting anything. But if he is to create a stone that is supposed to be unliftable, yet he is capable of lifting it; that would neglect the fact that he can create anything out of his will.
