    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.]

    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

    I think that works.

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

    The correct solution is usually the simplest one.

    No, that doesn't work. There is a much more straightfotward solution! It dorsn't have to be girl friends. Look, it could just as well be the following: Bob claims to have twice as much money as Bill, and Bill says that they both have the same amount of money, yet both of them are right. How can that be?
