Re: Portal Paradox

You would crush yourself. But you're welcome to try it yourself. Just let us know before you do, and if we hear nothing back we'll assume the worst. On a somewhat related note, I've crashed the game by placing two portals on the ceiling of a place where you have to duck to get through, and then stan...

Re: Some Good ones for the kids?

With the monty hall problem, you might want to actually play the game.

What helped me with this one was making a list of all the possibilities.

B/B (Black-Black, first side up)
B/B (Black-Black, second side up)

W/B
W/W
W/W

So, if the first letter is B, there is a 2/3rds chance the second letter is also B.
