Question: A man and his wife live I a nice cottage in a village near the lake. One day, they were rowing a boat when he wife fell in and the husband went in to get her out but all he could feel were plants, moss, and rocks. Two weeks after the funeral, the man was walking around the lake when he started talking to a new neighbor when the fisherman said some interesting facts. Fisherman: I haven't caught anything today. Maybe because of the fact this lake has no kelp what so ever. Mrs. Montoya was telling me about it yesterday. I always catch fish when there is kelp in a lake or pond. That is just rotten ain't it? The husband said goodbye to the neighbor and went inside and killed himself. Why is this?
Answer: The neighbor told the husband there was no kelp in the lake. What the husband thought was kelp in the lake was actually his wife's hair and killed himself because he could not live knowing he almost saved his wife.
Question: Your father is a scientist who has invented a red pill which, if eaten with 1 blue pill which he has invented, will grant immortality. The night he invents it, he gives you 2 red and 2 blue pills just in case one of them is lost or substandard. He also warns you that an overdose will cause the opposite effect and kill you instead. You put the pills in your pocket and leave his lab for home. On the way home, you are abducted by aliens who blindfold you and throw you into a singularity. At this point, you remember the pills your father gave you. You take them out (you can move and have enough oxygen in space for a short time), but realize that you can't tell the red pill from the blue pill. Even if you take off your blindfold, you can't see anything due to your proximity to the black hole. Given the circumstances, how do you successfully eat 1 red and 1 blue pill and survive?
Answer: Eat half of each pill.
