Inconvenient Debt – Glenn Beck

30 01 2009

This is why the bail-out is a bad idea.  This video scares me.

Just for reference sake: One Trillion = 1,000 Billion = 1,000,000 Million

I have a hard time even comprehending a million of anything, let alone a million million.

Pumping one trillion dollars into our economy (that we are creating out of thin air), will only mean that the $5 bill in my pocket is now worth about $2.  Our dollar is going to be so worthless soon you won’t be able to buy a soda.  This video is what inflation is all about.


Seeing the truth in the remains of destroyed cities

15 01 2009

In the deserts and areas around the Dead Sea, Daniel Chew and others have uncovered very interesting revelations about the destroyed cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.  This video below is very intriguing.

I always get so full of glee when science is used to prove and support the events of the Bible rather than being used as an attempt to disprove them.

Blue Eyes – The hardest logic puzzle in the world

9 01 2009

A group of people with assorted eye colors live on an island. They are all perfect logicians — if a conclusion can be logically deduced, they will do it instantly. No one knows the color of their eyes. Every night at midnight, a ferry stops blue_eyesat the island. Any islanders who have figured out the color of their own eyes then leave the island, and the rest stay. Everyone can see everyone else at all times and keeps a count of the number of people they see with each eye color (excluding themselves), but they cannot otherwise communicate. Everyone on the island knows all the rules in this paragraph.

On this island there are 100 blue-eyed people, 100 brown-eyed people, and the Guru (she happens to have green eyes). So any given blue-eyed person can see 100 people with brown eyes and 99 people with blue eyes (and one with green), but that does not tell him his own eye color; as far as he knows the totals could be 101 brown and 99 blue. Or 100 brown, 99 blue, and he could have red eyes.

The Guru is allowed to speak once (let’s say at noon), on one day in all their endless years on the island. Standing before the islanders, she says the following:

“I can see someone who has blue eyes.”

Who leaves the island, and on what night?

There are no mirrors or reflecting surfaces, nothing dumb. It is not a trick question, and the answer is logical. It doesn’t depend on tricky wording or anyone lying or guessing, and it doesn’t involve people doing something silly like creating a sign language or doing genetics. The Guru is not making eye contact with anyone in particular; she’s simply saying “I count at least one blue-eyed person on this island who isn’t me.”

And lastly, the answer is not “no one leaves”.

Thanks to xkcd for this logic puzzle, I have never heard of it before.
