Thread Name: BS: Stupid riddle but can you explain it?
Subject: RE: BS: Stupid riddle but can you explain it?
I follow Mr Red but not number 6's 2nd statement or conclusion. The answer yes means "yes" doesn't it, yet number 6's reasoning takes me to the conclusion only that "it's possible to be yes".

I don't find it confusing, I find it simple: Cannot be determined. So I further conclude that the statement that the answer is "Yes" is mistaken or untrue or deliberate obfuscation to test people's willingness to submit to perceived authority.

All that certainty of mine is not to say I'm correct--only that it's what I think.
