The Hardest Logic Puzzle Ever The Hardest Logic Puzzle Ever is a logic puzzle invented by American philosopher and logician George Boolos and published in The Harvard Review of Philosophy in 1996.

It Is Now Mathematically Impossible To Pay Off The U.S. National Debt A lot of people are very upset about the rapidly increasing U.S. national debt these days and they are demanding a solution. What they don't realize is that there simply is not a solution under the current U.S. financial system. It is now mathematically impossible for the U.S. government to pay off the U.S. national debt. You see, the truth is that the U.S. government now owes more dollars than actually exist. If the U.S. government went out today and took every single penny from every single American bank, business and taxpayer, they still would not be able to pay off the national debt. And if they did that, obviously American society would stop functioning because nobody would have any money to buy or sell anything.

Uncommon Act of Design: Fake Bus Stop Helps Alzheimer's Patients One of the most pernicious symptoms of Alzheimer's is that patients, in a fit of confusion, feel suddenly disoriented from their surroundings and wracked with a need to just get home. As a result, Alzheimer's patients in nursing homes often escape--wandering at large, with no memory of who they are, oblivious to danger. The obvious (and common) solution is to lock up Alzheimer's wards. But then, that seems cruel and it often aggravates a panicking patient even more. Via Radiolab's podcast comes a remarkable story of how the Benrath Senior Center in Dusseldorf, Germany, found an alternative solution. The staff there noticed that escaped Alzheimer's patients often head directly to their only exit: Public transportation.
Math doesn't suck, you do. Every time I hear someone say "I suck at math," I immediately think he or she is a moron. If you suck at math, what you really suck at is following instructions. This shirt is birth control. Sucking at math is like sucking at cooking. I'm tired of eating shitty food because you're too much of a dipshit to follow a recipe. Also, I'm tired of hearing people brag about how they can't cook like it's some kind of badge of honor.
Puzzles by Eric C. Harshbarger For my whole life I have been interested in puzzles and games, and in the last few years I have been fortunate enough to turn that passion into a profession. I design all types of puzzles: paper-and-pencil brainteasers, physical/manipulative puzzles, number puzzles, riddles, and all-day scavenger hunts for people to explore. My work has been for companies all around the world. Puzzles of mine have appeared in the Perplexcity alternate-reality games (by Mind Candy), in Wired magazine, GAMES magazine, at Lone Shark Games events, in puzzle calendars, on-line treasure hunts, and so forth. I host annual puzzle parties where many of my initial puzzle ideas are play-tested by very patient friends.

Put simply it is Japan’s cartoon industry, and its range demonstrates how little Western animation has scratched the surface. Anime is not just for kids, but that doesn’t mean it’s brimming with sex and violence (although some undoubtedly has plenty of that). Anime is proof that any genre can be animated, from fantasy, to sci-fi, to crucially, everyday drama. And animation can capture nuance and emotion often lost in live action. With the release onto Blu-ray of Evangelion 1.11 – You Are (Not) Alone we have collected 50 great anime you really have to see, and yep, Evangelion 1.11 is in there.
