"Four men sat down to play,
They played all night till dawn.
They played for gold and not for fun,
With separate scores for everyone.
When they came to square accounts,
They all had made quite fair amounts.
Can you the paradox explain,
If no one lost, how could all gain?"

i'll try....

in terms of physical gold, no one lost any weight in gold but overnight, the value of gold has appreciated, hence, everyone gained. :smile:

A rich woman, Mrs Rich had been counting her money. When she finished, she accidentally left a $100.00 bill on her table. However, when she returned for it a little while later, it vanished. Only two other persons could have spotted the bill. One was the maid and the other was the butler.
The maid told her that she had hidden it for safekeeping under a green book that was on the table. But when they looked, the bill was not there.
The butler said he had found the bill where the maid had left it. He had then placed it inside the book where he thought there was less chance that somebody else would find it. He added that he had written down the page numbers so that he would not forget them. The bill was placed between pages 35 and 36, he said. But when they looked, there was no money in the book.
After Mrs Rich had spoken to the maid and the butler, she called the police. She was sure she knew who had taken the money. Who was it and how did she know?

i think the butler took the money... cos, he's the only one who could have known the last place the money was stashed.

Of course, the butler did it! Yes, pages 35 and 36 in a book are always printed on opposite sides of the same piece of paper. Thus, Mrs Rich knew that the butler was lying!
