    The Executioner's Riddle

    What happened to your "I'm not a..." titles, Shakee? Those were so good! An opening guess, in any case.

    One Girl - One Boy

    Old thread, and masses of discussion, but to simplify - There are 4 equally likely combinations of 2 children: Boy/Boy; Girl/Girl; Boy/Girl; Girl/Boy. The odds of the second child being a girl depend upon how the OP is interpreted and the possible combinations (green) each interpretation allows. 1. They have two kids, [only] one of them is a girl. Boy/Boy Girl/Girl Boy/Girl Girl/Boy - Trick question. In the 2 possible combinations the other child must be a boy. Probability 0. 2. They have two kids, [the first] one of them is a girl. Boy/Boy Girl/Girl Boy/Girl Girl/Boy - There are 2 possible combinations where the first child is a girl. In 1 the other child is too. Probability 1/2. 3. They have two kids, [at least] one of them is a girl. Boy/Boy Girl/Girl Boy/Girl Girl/Boy - Without the Boy/Boy combination 3 remain, in 1 of which the other child is a girl. Probability 1/3.

    Sequence puzzle

    I am trying to help my son solve a sequence puzzle. I tried the "read the line" on this one and still can't figure it out. The below is a number puzzle. It should be read left to right, top to bottom. Question 1 What is the next two rows of numbers. Question 2 How was this reached. 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 2 3 1 1 3 1 2 2 1 ? ?

    Crypto-anagram

    Apology ... a little mistake in the third word. It should read EWTUFRFUXCJZ (one "F" was missing). So here is the correct one: ABRQQNA WTKQXT EWTUFRFUXCJZ GNUZCUWCAS

    Fair deal?

    [If appeared before in any other form, please delete this question, Mr Moderator} Alpha and Bravo were having a meal with eight bread rolls in the kitty. Alpha contributed five of those rolls, whereas Bravo brought along three. Charlie (as a third person) joined them for the meal, but gave Alpha and Bravo eight coins (as compensation) afterwards. Bravo demanded a 50/50 share of that compensation, even though Alpha offered Bravo three coins, thereby keeping five coins for himself. What should the distribution of Charlie's coins be to make it truthfully a fair deal?

    Hey plasmid! Long time! Funny, volcano was my friend's first guess. But they don't swallow, paticularly when force fed : )

    Crypto-anagram

    Here is a cryptogram: ABRQQNA WTKQXT EWTUFRUXCJZ GNUZCUWCAS Solve it, then unscramble the letters in the resulting sentence (it is now an anagram) to reveal the name and surname of a politician and two of his policies (there are four words).
