Are you referring to the one dlinkwit27 already solved?

Ok, here's one that should inspire some debate, and is more aligned with the name of the thread:

You meet a long-lost HUMAN friend of yours. She brings along one of her two children, who is a girl. What is the chance that the other child is a boy?

Explain your reasoning. Include all the factors you can think of.

[edit] Updated to be more explicit[/edit]

Ok, I'll play the devil's advocate.

The (roughly equally) possible families are this:

BB BG GB GG

clearly, it's not BB, so the remaining possibilities are this:

BG GB GG

that makes a 66% chance that the other child will be a boy.

There are other factors, too. It's definately not perfectly 50/50.

Keyhole is the standard, stupid answer. Most keyholes do NOT go through the door, they go through part of the handle or lock (when's the last time you looked through a keyhole?), though most handles do.

Therefore, I say the correct answer is "the handle".

I hate these stupid word tricks. 0-0 is supposedly always the score before a game starts, however, I say that the soccer game does not exist before it starts, therefore, there is no score than can be found.

Another stupid riddle for you:

I can always guess the final score of a soccer game, and I do so before the game starts. Am I psychic?

Wrong.

Also, the typical answer to that would be "baby elephants". However, that is a matter of opinion. Humans are quite adept at cloning, at this point.

And you're still wrong, with my just-as-arbitrary solution as the typical one.

As for your riddle, I say it is a 0x0x0 cube. That fits all your specifications.

Oh-ho-ho. Don't get fresh with me, boy. Cubes are abstract. I could have a 0x0x0 cube all I want. I can have several of them, actually.

Games have a formal agreement, and a physical representation.

You still havn't gotten my riddle.

Uhh... you could easily argue that BG and GB are the same when referring to this b/c wether or not the two siblings are a boy or a girl is not really "stackable" if you know what I mean. So, 50/50 would be correct if i'm not mistaken.

There is no mention of guessing the correct final score.

Good one.
