    What province are we purchasing said product in?
    Is there a sale when you purchase both?
    Are taxes included or is it a private sale?
    If I donate my old bat and ball, can I use the tax refund against my purchase to determine actual net cost?
    Is the ball/bat black and blue or gold and white?

    If you could use the bat to bash in the presidential candidate of your choice's face, could you then trade the ball for enough nickels to escape the coming social disorder?

    I think not, therefore the question is irrelevant, and you should really be asking why the Koch brothers are funding Leonardo DiCaprio's films. Open your eyes people.

    What surprises me is that approximately half of Harvard students got it wrong. Princeton was closer to 55% MIT was closer to 43%.

    The mind is surprisingly weak when given simple questions worded in a specific manner.

    Psychologists are trying to figure out why. The main argument seems to be that people who are in academia tend to be self reinforced into believing they always know the correct answer as the first one that comes into their head. Instinctively, the mind usually says dime. Normal people see it as a riddle and not question, and therefore - think about it much longer with the intent that there is somehow a "trick" in the question, which there sort of is.

    Reason for question: Trump and Hillary seem to both be in self reinforced delusion, and I'm pretty sure many other normal people are starting to see it.

    I also get the feeling that Trump would fail the "Three men rent a room" question.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_dollar_riddle

    Which would make him the most easily manipulatable president in recent history.

    I'd be interested to see what the departemental breakdown of the respondents was. I have a math and physics background. I did not see it as anything but a math equation. Im willing to bet any Harvard or MIT student with the same background would solve it as a math problem without having to even write it down like my slow ass did.

    I purchased in Alberta

    The ball was $0.03
    The bat was $1.03
    GST on $1.06 was $0.05
    Total cost was $1.11
    I paid in cash so $1.10

    The bat now hangs in the closet. Now I need to go find insects to feed my bat.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.
