Paradoxes are interesting things. The following paradox was invented by Bertrand Russell : A certain male barber shaved all and only those men in his town who didn't shave themselves. In other words, he shaved every man who didn't shave himself, but never shaved anyone who shaved himself. The question is this: Did the barber shave himself or didn't he? Well, suppose he shaved himself. Then he is one of the men who shaved himself, but he never shaved such a man, hence this is impossible! On the other hand, suppose he didn't shave himself. Then he is one of the men who didn't shave himself, but he must shave every such man! Thus we get a contradiction either way! What is the way out?
Answer will be given in the next posting.


Define 'HIS' town. Does it mean the town where his barber shop is, or the town where he lives? It wouldn't be a paradox if he lives in a different town from where he works. :wink:

--Is it possible for a person to have great grandchildren if none of his grandchildren have any children? Well, I know someone who has great grandchildren and yet none of his grandchildren have any children! How do you explain that? [The answer will be given in the next posting.]

Sadly, one or more of the grandchildren have died after producing the great grandchildren.

But depending on how you define 'having children', the grandchildren could have adopted children, or married someone with children from a previous marriage. So that they would have children in the juridical sense but not in the biological sense.

How can it be possible that my friend has great grandchildren and yet none of his grandchildren have any children? The answer is that he has grandchildren and those kids are really GREAT! [Pretty sneaky, huh?]

Another sneaky one: Two brothers Bob and Bill. Bob claims to have twice as many girl friends as Bill. Bill says that they have the same number of girl friends. Could they both be right? [Answer on next posting.]

Sneaky Bob is dating all of Bill's girlfriends without poor Bill knowing it. :lol:

Is there a typo? You have to be careful (again English :evil: )

Is it girlfriends (as in relationship) or girl friends (as in friends who are females)?

Please clarify

It doesn't matter. At least I don't think so. I'm not feeling very 'brilliant' today.
