    • In World War I, the uniform of the British Army consisted, among other things, of a cap of brown cloth.

      The high commanders, alarmed by the large number of injured in the head decided to replace this accessory by a metallic helmet.

    • A CHALLENGE ... does anyone accept it?.

      It could be called something like "the race of 100".

      The idea is as follows: the one that starts says any number from 1 to 10.

      The other player adds to the number his opponent said a number from 1 to 10 and says the result.

      They continue to play this way, in turns.

      The first one that exactly sums the amount of 100 wins.

      We do not play anything, just the honnete.

      Let's begin:

      I say 1.

      Well ... the game The Race of 100 is not fair play, as some will have already deduced, the game can not win, there are initial winning positions do what the opponent does, in fact has winning strategy who starts the game (Mathematical Games and Analysis of Winning Strategies by Carlos d'Andrea).

    • We have 12 black balls, all equal except one weight different from the others. We do not know if it weighs more or less, just different.

      We have a scale for weighing of two saucers (like the one that represents "Justice").

      I allow you to only make 3 heavy with the scale, in the saucers you can only put balls, no strange elements. With those 3 heavy ones you have to find out which ball weighs differently.

      (Very difficult).

    • A sultan tried to increase the number of women available for his harem by promulgating a law that forbade having more children to families as soon as a man was born there.

      His reasoning was: "In this way there will be families of one male, others of male and female, others with one male and two, three, four females, etc. The average number of females will be higher than that of males".

      Is the reasoning correct?.
