gahh, i'm wrong!! see if you can figure out these simple problems :)

i think asimov's laws of robotics should be applied to government. after all, government *is* a kind of machine designed to serve and protect humanity

interesting, but i suspect the conclusion is false: the human mind does not run on logic, and it's possible to construct thinking machines that don't either

*that's* an interesting theory

lol; lifted from tweakerbell :)

good work, i think this idea has a future :)

"Mr. Hall said he was not surprised at the experts' insistence that the probability was 1 out of 2. "That's the same assumption contestants would make on the show after I showed them there was nothing behind one door," he said. "They'd think the odds on their door had now gone up to 1 in 2, so they hated to give up the door no matter how much money I offered. By opening that door we were applying pressure. We called it the Henry James treatment. It was 'The Turn of the Screw.' "

Mr. Hall said he realized the contestants were wrong, because the odds on Door 1 were still only 1 in 3 even after he opened another door. Since the only other place the car could be was behind Door 2, the odds on that door must now be 2 in 3. "

fascinating example of groupthink

great story about using logic to solve difficult problems. i'd say the moral is: when faced with an intractable problem, use brute force! ;)
