A few days later, the eldest son, Dollar, presented a letter to the attorney. "I found this letter in between pages 21-22 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows," he said. The attorney checked the letter. It was Boy Peso's hand writing.
Just as the attorney, was going to approve the letter, the youngest son, Franc, spoke. "That letter's a fake!" How did he know?

science12nerd added a topic in New Logic/Math PuzzlesJohn Silverstein was jailed for poisoning his own brother for 10 years. Now, he is finally getting out. Detective Courtney Grimier and Police Officer James Copperfield were anxious.
"All I wanted for now is to build a garden of my own. I have always wanted to be botanist, the main reason why I studied plants," he told the detective and the officer.
Detective Grimier and PO Copperfield went to John's garden. There was a flower's section with rows of marigolds, orchids, chrysanthemums and violets. There's also the fruits section with pears, apples, grapes and oranges. Beside it was a vegetables section with broccoli, lettuce, cucumbers and celery. The two sat by a picnic table in the middle of the garden.
Then, John came carrying two plates of fresh green salad. "I believe that you doubt about my innocence. I'm proud to tell you that I have changed. As you can see, I have a beautiful garden here as my sanctuary and business. I'm a criminal no more." The two just nodded.
Going home, Detective Grimier told PO Copperfield, "He is not a criminal now, but he sure isn't a botanist!" Why did Detective Grimier think that John is not a botanist?

science12nerd added a topic in New Logic/Math PuzzlesThere was once a man named Boy Peso. One day, he saw a toy in a store. he doesn't have the money, so he had to ask his mother and father. They gave him 5 dollars each. So, he had 10 dollars. He bought the toy and had a 3 dollar loose change. "How can I split 3 dollars into two people?" he asked himself. Then an idea struck his mind. He gave 1 dollar to each of his parents and kept the last. He owed 5 dollars to each parent, but returned 1 dollar to each. His debt to each of his parents is 4 dollars. That gives a total of 8 dollars, add the one he kept and that's 9 dollars. Hey, wait a minute. Where did the missing dollar go?
