Re-tickling Your Brain


Yes I realize I've put this to you before, but humor me. I dare you to furrow your brow and really think about your answer:

``````````````````````````````````````````````

l. STATEMENT #2 BELOW IS FALSE.

2. STATEMENT #1 ABOVE IS TRUE.

WHICH STATEMENT IS TRUE?

``````````````````````````````````````````````

If you've thought awhile, by now you're in a quandary. I'll make up an example of what the statement is asking:

`````````````````````````````````````````````

JACK CANNOT LIE. JACK SAYS JILL IS A HOOKER.

JILL CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH. JILL AGREES WITH JACK.

SO IS JILL A HOOKER?

`````````````````````````````````````````````

Like, something that can only tell the truth says "You are red". And something that can only lie says "I agree" then is the 2nd something red? Remember, it lies.

Hope I've tickled your brain a bit. Have a good think! Not everything is either true or false is it lol. In fact here's a little science (ho hum but what the heck it's cool): What you're doing when using your brain to work out these statements, is exercising it the best way possible - not by repetitive acts but by giving the brain something NEW to use. You know how people say "I do a crossword puzzle everyday to keep my brain sharp!"? Well they're actually stagnating that brain, this organ which can literally contemplate itself, this incredible mass of tissue which only learns by getting new input, new stimuli. It already KNOWS how to do a crossword, that person is just wasting time and getting old doing it. If you want to keep your thinking ability sharp and in tune, do things you've never done before - like finding if there's a reality behind these statements and if so, what. I'm having a great time reading your answers! Clever. =========================

#2 may be false to some because that is the way they have decided to see it and #1 is true to those who wish to believe that so in conclusion yes they are all hoors!

I think they did this on Star Trek a few times, and the computer always ended up self-destructing.

On a similar topic, there's an Indian word, mu, that has no real equivalent in English. It means (sort of) "neither yes nor no." So if somebody asks us "Have you stopped beating your dog yet?" we can answer "mu," since we've never beaten our dog. :)

Well my brain is quite deranged these days according to the Neurologist, so my pickled brain would say nope Jill is not a hooker, but then again with a scrambled brain what do I know. LOL.

Jill is not a hooker. She is a bookie. Jack has a broken crown and he thought he heard hooker, but "booker" was said. That fall down the hill---neither has ever been the same.
