How do you pronounce the capital of Kentucky...Loueeeville or Louisville?


This is a doubly-trick question. Loueeeville is correct, if you ask me.


I met a guy at a conference. We hit it off and hung together for a couple of days. He told me he was from "Loovel". It wasn't until the next day that I realized he was saying Louisville.

A truck driver is going the wrong way down a one way street, and passes at least ten policemen while doing so. Why is he not caught or ticketed?
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Actually, my favorite is probably the Monte Hall Dilemma. You're on a game show, and you get to choose between three doors, one of which has an awesome prize. We'll call it a million dollars. The other two have nothing. After you select, the host will show you one of the doors that has nothing, and you'll have an opportunity to change your mind, if you want to.

So you pick Door #1, and the host says, "Well, it's a good thing you didn't pick Door #2, because there's nothing behind that door. ok, do you want to keep Door #1, or do you want to switch for Door #3?"

A) Does it matter whether or not you switch?
B) If it does matter, how much does it matter, and what should you do?


Getting across the concept of variable change is difficult. This is a pretty good illustration. Doesn't mean you always win but it does always give you the best odds.

Me: "Someone told me you look like an owl"
other person: "Who?"

riddle:The rich need it, the poor have it, and if you'll eat it you'll die.
answer: nothing

the classic:
As I was going to St. Ive's, I met a man with seven wives. The seven wives had seven sacks. The seven sacks had seven cats. The seven cats had seven kits. Kits, cats, sacks and wives, how many were going to St. Ive's?
answer: 1

Actually, we have no idea how many were going to St. Ive's since we don't know which way the man with the wives/sacks/cats/kits was going.

well, if you take every word literally, it implies he was going there so he must have passed him, but you are correct, it is ambiguous

Yes, we still don't know which direction the crowd was going in. I'm pretty certain I'd move a little fast than that group.
