sorry I`m so late but at the beginning it said WITH answers

A—I DID NOT KILL HIM; I DON’T KNOW WHO DID KILL HIM

B—I DID NOT KILL HIM; I WAS NOT AT THE MURDER

C—I DID NOT KILL HIM; ‘A’ WAS NOT WITH ME ATTHE MURDER.

D—I DID NOT KILL HIM; ‘A’ IS SAYING THE COMPLETE TRUTH.

remember 1 liar 1truth 2 half

1murderer 1witness 1guy who knows who did it 1 innocent

step number 1. there is only one statement that is true in the second statements.

since there is only one complete truth, everyone must use their truths to make themselves not the murderer. the complete liar is naturally the murderer.

2. with this explained ‘d’ second statement can not be true since he is saying ‘a’ is the complete truth. therefore it is false and ‘a’ is not saying the complete truth—meaning he is one of the halfs. so we no d is saying at least one lie and a is also.

3. naturally ‘a’ is saying the first truth and second false since only the complete false is the murderer.

4. going back to ‘d’ if his first statement is false [murdered] than it will come out either b or c is lying on the second statement [their first statements are true since ‘d’ is the murderer] now no matter how you put ‘c’ true or false he is still the witness. just the matter is whether a is there or not.

so if c is lying there will be two witnesses a and c so that can not be.

and if b is lying than b was there and c still has to be there so it can not be d

5.so d must be true on the first and false on the second and a is true on the first false on the second–meaning he is the guy who knows who did it.

6. so we have left a complete liar and complete truth.

now if b is truth and c is lie it will be some sort of answer but we will never find out who knows- it cannot be ‘a’ since he is the witness and ‘c’ is not the witness since he is the murderer.

so we will never know who knows and i wrote their will be a definite answer.

7.now if c is true and ‘d’ is false everything works out.

a true lie knows who did it.

b false false–murderer

c true true– witness

d true false-innocent

this is the only way it works

there is one big hint in this riddle about who knows… ‘a’ is the only one who talks about knowing and since we are not just making assumptions it must be him

you chap?!?!?!?!

moishe- your right in a way.. the question was posed to a friend in school… what happens when you eat meat, and then realize that you ate aged cheese a little bit before.. then you are in a weird state where you cant eat either milk or meat!

#1068156

oh i was thinking “big-mac”

#1068157

I guess that would work, but then why would you care about how many hours you are in between meat and milk? and would treif count? I am not sure…

who eats parve anything? it’s either gotta be pizza or steak! (or CHULENT!) but the parve stuff is just not worth the effort it takes to chew.

Razzles do not need to be chewed!! But yes, the milchig version is far better.

I was just trying to solve her “being in a state of treifness” dilemma.

No birds are left.

Moish – your example with the BigMac is worse (in Halacha) than the other example. A cheeseburger is an example of Milk and Meat that is prohibited by the Torah outright (because the meat and milk is cooked together). Having milk a half hour after meat, or even at the same meal if it is cold, is prohibited by the Rabbonon. Practically, it makes no difference (because both are prohibited), but it is good to know the difference.

#1068172

you think they’re really cooked together? i’ll bet they take a warm burger, put a slice of cheese on it and hand it to the customer. or does that count as cooking? anyway who cares

#1068173

Is that how it’s done? I don’t really know the reality of it, but in all the ads it shows a burger sizzling on the grill (or right off it) and a disembodied hand placing a slice of cheese on it….

somehow i can’t imagine them spending too much time or effort in making fast-food. but i don’t know – i’m not exactly a BigMac fan.

I don’t know first hand how its made, but the burger is over yad soledet bo and will cook the cheese once placed on the hamburger. The cheese melts (at least according to the commercials because it slightly drips down).

Why can’t you eat dairy after aged cheese? Are you talking about camembert or brie or others like that?

sjs – i do riddles not halacha. i have no clue.

SJS, it is meat that you cannot eat after eating hard cheese. See the Pischei Halacha for the reason and what is considered hard cheese (not most cheeses that we eat).

asdfghjkl – yeah i was downstairs and i had to make the trip down worthwhile (even though i was down for hours) i’m deciding if i should have one now or wait till later. or maybe i’ll just have two of them…

#1068180

So whats with the birds- I still say none are there because they all flew away and it is hard to hit a flying bird in one shot…

by the way, whats a razzle?

havesomeseichel- a razzle is one of the necessities of life- oxygen, food, shelter, razzle. It can be obtained in most brooklyn ice cream stores

moish01: did ya get the milkshake or not in the end??? that would make the trip down worth it!!! make me a vanilla one please!!!

#1068183

What about those of us not from NY? There is life outside NY, so then it cant be a necessity of life…

But if I ever make it to NY, where can I find one?
