jokes/logic problems/logical rants

A tree falls down in the woods and no one is around to hear it. Does it make a sound?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
ADDED: The glass is half...

It makes a noise.

Pick a point in time for the species were talking about to be labeled a chicken, and that's which one it was.

Noise

Egg
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know", Alice answered. "Then", said the cat, "It doesn't matter.”

Noise (c'mon, really? Why wouldn't it make a noise. What's stopping it from making a noise?)

Tough. Depending on if it was a point mutation that caused an almost chicken to become a chicken, thus laying "chicken" eggs.
Or if there was a point mutation in an almost chicken egg that hatched into a chicken. Most likely it was the egg that gave birth to a chicken as the probably that a point mutation in the chicken's gametes is more likely (probably caused by cosmic radiation)....thus producing chicken eggs.

Glass is half full if liquid was being added and half empty is liquid is being removed.

I still think if a deaf guy farts in an empty room.....would be a better question.

Too late for a witty retort to the chicken and egg. Not really one that can be sorted in 1 word replies.

You should see if you can find the 2DTV clip where George W meets the Pope. Classic comedy. YouTube have dropped it off.

I always said the egg came first, because you have it for breakfast, and you're having chicken for dinner. ;D

But really, the egg did come first, since proto-chickens most likely were egg-hatching animals. o.o

Tree does make noise. But if a man speaks in the woods, and his wife isn't around to hear him, is he still wrong? ;)

1) Noise
2) Fishy?
3) full and empty, imagine that.

Glass is half full if liquid was being added and half empty is liquid is being removed.


This is exactly the way I've seen it for so long. Someone asks me this and I say, "Well, what was the last thing that happened to the glass of liquid to get it to half?"

That response determines the answer. Even the setting may determine the answer.

So my answer would have to be half empty. Here is why: I have to assume that the glass was full. And that someone (myself) drank half of the glass. Therefore, liquid was removed, therefore glass is half empty.
