A Pair Of Doxes?

It's raining outside and I'm so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes open. Going under the table for some shut eye is one option but I don't think my boss would like that very much. And helping that moronic colleague of mine to do some of the rush jobs that she has is most definitely not an option at all.

I'd rather be fed to a pack of hungry wolves that help her! So, what does a crazy and sometimes annoying spaceman do when he's sleepy in the office. He goes off looking for silly paradoxes to make you guys answer, that's what! LOL!

I haven't been posting any riddles for ages and I'm not going to post any now. I came across this paradox for you guys and gals to ponder over just in case you're as sleepy as I am now. Before I begin, let's all take a look at what a Paradox really is.

PARADOX : par·a·dox
Pronunciation: \ˈper-ə-ˌdäks, ˈpa-rə-\

Function: noun

Etymology: Latin paradoxum, from Greek paradoxon, from neuter of paradoxos contrary to expectation,
from para- + dokein to think, seem.

Date: 1540

1. a tenet contrary to received opinion

2 (a). a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true (b) a self-contradictory statement that at first seems true (c) an argument that apparently derives self-contradictory conclusions by valid deduction from acceptable premises

3. one (as a person, situation, or action) having seemingly contradictory qualities or phases

Ok, now that we all know what paradoxes are ... hehehe ... let's get straight to the question. And don't chicken out. I want to hear your answers no matter how silly you may think they are :D

1. Let's say there is a bullet which can shoot through any barrier. Let's also say there is an absolutely bullet-proof armor which no object can penetrate. What will happen if such a bullet hits such an armor?

2. Can a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?

3. Your mission is not to accept the mission. Do you accept?

4. A girl goes into the past and kills her Grandmother. Since her Grandmother is dead, the girl was never born. If she were never born, she never killed her grandmother.

5. If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, "it will be twice as cold tomorrow", what will the temperature be?

6. What happens if you are in a car going the speed of light and you turn the headlights on?

There, now let's hear your answers and I'm really looking forward to what my good buddy Professor Kelentong would have up his sleeves for this one ... LOL!

Fuyoooh... you actually answered all those doxes!!

Mythbusters huh? Sounds like a cool idea :D

Spiffy said...

Anny - You chicken you! LOL! Lari by the back door lagi ... hehehe ... lucky Hobbes didn't eat you ... LOL!

Spiffy said...

Anny - I'm waiting for Bem too ... LOL! Bemmmmmm, where are you?

Spiffy said...

Anny - Alamak, you actually went and answered this? LOL!

1. LOL! It shouldn't be possible cos you cannot have two contradictory things existing at the same time. It's either the bullet or the armor.

2. Hmmm, good point ... or he just might drown and get revived for all eternity which would lead to boredom and which you are probably correct ... hehehe ...

3. I'm still trying to figure this one out.

4. LOL! True, I would go back in time and adjust things so I would be supreme ruler of the world in the future ... hahaha!

5. Where got la? Hahaha ... 2 x 0 = 0 la ... hehehe ...
