  1. Cut and paste from website:

    Remember, Albert is told either May, June, July or August.

    Bernard is told either 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 or 19

    Let’s go through it line by line.

    Albert: I don’t know when Cheryl’s birthday is, but I know that Bernard doesn’t know too.

    All Albert knows is the month, and every month has more than one possible date, so of course he doesn’t know when her birthday is. The first part of the sentence is redundant.

    The only way that Bernard could know the date with a single number, however, would be if Cheryl had told him 18 or 19, since of the ten date options only these numbers appear once, as May 19 and June 18.

    For Albert to know that Bernard does not know, Albert must therefore have been told July or August, since this rules out Bernard being told 18 or 19.

    Line 2) Bernard: At first I don’t know when Cheryl’s birthday is, but now I know.

    Bernard has deduced that Albert has either August or July. If he knows the full date, he must have been told 15, 16 or 17, since if he had been told 14 he would be none the wiser about whether the month was August or July. Each of 15, 16 and 17 only refers to one specific month, but 14 could be either month.

    Line 3) Albert: Then I also know when Cheryl’s birthday is.

    Albert has therefore deduced that the possible dates are July 16, Aug 15 and Aug 17. For him to now know, he must have been told July. Since if he had been told August, he would not know which date for certain is the birthday.

    The answer, therefore is July 16.
  2. whats wrong with cops all over !!!!even at the 2.35 minutes mark.. that cop
    was still punching the fallen guy..

    and dont tell me a;; the cops lives were in danger.. .
  3. @Peter agree with your points and there were studies and reports and cost associated with the repair so why another report in one week by JT?

    There was a debate in council last term regarding repair or tore it down
    and as you have stated, the bridge is weak now,, spend the money and repair it or spend more and tore it down...
  4. Question I ask: "Is it going to be cheaper if it is sold in grocery stores?"

    Probably not, right? still monopolised by the Foreign owners, so what is Wynne doing?
    moving beer from this corner to the other corner, no savings for me..

    Big Deal
  5. Vandalism should be treated as a serious crime with severe punishment;
    the police and court system are not treating it as such hence it is just a slap on the hand thus there is no deterrent for these vandals to stop.
  6. @63r01d NO ONE should be doing what you had suggested, this is not a movie
    from that video, no one was on board and the bus will be the only bus
    damaged, the truck really helped to minimise the damage.

    Don be stupid and get yourself injured or killed by trying to be a hero...
  7. @Peter I wonder if the landmark Askov ruling would apply here due to long delay;
    if it does then it will be sad for the Bosma's family..

    Google Askov ruling..
  8. @MarkFromEtobicoke Apparently, if you will to call Rob Ford, you will get a reply from him.. and he will try to help.... try calling John Tory and ...ehhhh..
  9. @Samuel B. Those affected should be able to check into a hotel and claim through their insurance companies or city hall.

    I would probably check with my insurance company on this..

    Ultimately, the City should give you a credit ...
  10. Olivia Chow and now Hazel McCallion . is that what ex-politician gets now instead
