A place to share Paradoxes.
Was explaining the rules of a game called "do this, do that" to my brother. Basically, whenever I say do THIS, he's supposed to copy me. Whenever I say do THAT, he's NOT supposed to do it. I finished it off by saying, "so do that." Then I realised...
If you remove one ounce of rock from mount Everest, it is still a mountain. If you remove one more, it is still a mountain. If you remove one more, it is still a mountain.If you remove one more, it is still a mountain.If you remove one more, it is still a mountain.If you remove one more, it is still a mountain.If you remove one more, it is still a mountain. This could theoretically go on infinitely: however, say you remove 1 trillion ounces from Mount Everest. Will it still be a mountain? But if you do that same thing, just 1 ounce at a time, will you ever notice that it's no longer a mountain? The "Toad in boiling water" phenomenon is confusing.
imagine a ifinite hotel with ifinite numbers of rooms
one day all the rooms are full
so a guy comes in and asks for one so the manager gets an idea
he asks the person in room one to move 2 and 2 to 3 and the last person in the last room to move to a new room and he does move
If a barber has a sign on the front of his shop, saying that he will shave any man who does not shave himself, does the barber shave himself?
If he does not, he is breaking the rule because it states that he must shave every man that does not shave himself, but if he does he is a man that is shaving himself and breaking the rule because he has to be someone who doesn't shave themselves to be shaved by him.
