  1. I don't get why what you're saying differs much from

    Fact 1: 50% of traffic accidents that result in injuries and deaths are caused by a drunk driver.

    I think one can safely infer that the fact that the driver is drunk caused the accidents...even if not the statement "Drunk driving leads to traffic accident that cause injuries and deaths" doesn't add much more. For example how often do they occur? How does that differ from sober driving? What does leads to mean?

    Let me put it this way. If fact 1 said 50% of traffic accidents that result in injuries or death are caused by a blonde driver, you would not infer that blonde driving caused the accident. (Well, I might, but it wouldn't be logical.)

    I agree with you that it matters how it differs from sober driving, (or from brunette or redhead driving). The fact that we know being drunk impairs our reflexes and judgement really plays no part in a strictly logical argument.

  2. Lady Gaga will let go of hers mid-drop, trying to refold the parachute into some pathetic excuse for fashion. She will be dashed to bits on the ground, and the world will rejoice.

  3. if peter sells his mangoes for "buy 1 get 2 free", john and mary would have to sell also their mangoes for "buy 1 get 2 free" also, because as the rules says, no competition, got it?

    You misunderstood my solution. There is no competition.

    Peter would sell his mangoes for $1 and include two coupons with each sale. These coupons would be good for the OTHER vendors' wares.

  4. Person D said:It was not me! Oh, and by the way, C is lying.

    Now then, if D is telling the truth, C is lying. If not, D is lying. That means 2 people lying....

    That doesn't matter. The person who gave you the rules was lying. So their rules don't really count for anything. ie "only one person is lying" and "all statements made by the liar are false".

  5. You are lying. You ate your own pie and claimed that someone else did.

    Actually this does not fit entirely, as this means everyone else has to be telling the truth. As has been pointed out previously, it is not possible that both C and D are telling the truth. It is also not possible that only one of them is lying.

    If Riddle_Lover is lying, then it doesn't matter if only half of C's statement is true. Riddle_Lover is lying about their veracity, as well as everything else.

  6. Yeah, I totally don't understand that. According to the story, YOU are confused which way to go. You bump into him the in hallway on the way to the restroom.

    "For a while you wait, but soon you have to go to the bathroom. It's been a while since you came to Morty's, and you have to remember.

    "Down the hall behind the counter, take a left, and the Men's room is on the left...no, right."

    A few steps down the hall, right before that crucial left turn,the huge man in front of you stops for a moment.

    Since you're too busy thinking,you bump right into him."

  7. Can we go to the bathroom first, please? Maybe we can relieve ourselves and take a snoop around. It's kinda suspicious that we had to wait so long for him to show up and he was in the john the whole time.

  8. @Vagabond

    I love how you colored it in. I wish you had animated it to spin, though.

    That you could cut out a bullseye pattern. That would give you a lot of slices, but I think the spiral is better because that's only one long cut.
