Ace of Death

The name is Ace of Death. You simply deal all the cards out as equally as possible and then everyone flips a card over at the same time. If the Ace of Spades has not come up, then another round of flipping occurs, until the Ace of Spades does come up. When it does, the player who turned over the Ace of Spades gets beat up by all (but only) participating players and is not allowed to fight back (but resistance is encouraged). A variation we come up with was a tournament match. It's a stupid game, but if you play it, it really does become wildly entertaining.

Food and Drink. Riddles(hard) ] There are three puzzlers in the puzzle forum: A Newbie, a Senior Riddler, and an Uberpuzzler.

All three are honest, but can only give answers to the best of their knowledge. Newbies are confused creatures. Until their fifteenth posts, they are only able to make random responses! * Senior Riddlers have great powers of perception, but are not yet infallible. Uberpuzzlers are omniscient beings who are your greatest allies in the Puzzle Forum!!! The Uberpuzzler can exert Influence arbitrarily often. Furthermore, an Uberpuzzler only uses his power of Influence in a very specific way. (Thus, he employs a strategy defined as a mapping f : S3 x {(T|F)*} -> {0,1}, which can be interpreted as follows: for each ordering of the puzzlers "sigma" (a permutation in S3, e.g.

Note that this is different from saying that the puzzler chooses when the Uberpuzzler applies Influence! Determine with proof the minimum number of questions which will allow you to identify which puzzler is which. THE FUCKING WEATHER.

Fallacy List

FAULTY CAUSE: (post hoc ergo propter hoc) mistakes correlation or association for causation, by assuming that because one thing follows another it was caused by the other. example: A black cat crossed Babbs' path yesterday and, sure enough, she was involved in an automobile accident later that same afternoon. example: The introduction of sex education courses at the high school level has resulted in increased promiscuity among teens. A recent study revealed that the number of reported cases of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) was significantly higher for high schools that offered courses in sex education than for high schools that did not. 2. SWEEPING GENERALIZATION: (dicto simpliciter) assumes that what is true of the whole will also be true of the part, or that what is true in most instances will be true in all instances. example: Muffin must be rich or have rich parents, because she belongs to ZXQ, and ZXQ is the richest sorority on campus. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
