Two Logic anti-'semantic' fallacy story problems

Here is the first..
Three Men Rent a Hotel Room
Three men rent a hotel room. Each pays $10 for a total of $30 spent on the room. The next day the hotel owner tells the three men that they over paid for the room as it only costs $25. The three men tell the owner to give them each a dollar back and he can keep two dollars.

If you do the math, each man paid $9 a piece for the room for a total of $27. The owner kept $2 which brings the total to $29.

The question is where did the other dollar go?


Story Problem #2. See how many errors you can find.
(HINT: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton walking down the street together is NOT one. This is totally believeable and demonstrably true.)

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. Trump gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.

Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office.

She then reached into Trump’s pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.00.

Now, do you understand the difference between a Conservative and a Liberal progressive?



  1. To quote Barbie "Math class is hard". No wonder Libtard's don't get it. ~:)

  2. Ahh (relief). Now that you've convinced me to vote for Trump, I really appreciate you writing some kind words about him.

    1. Showers are better because it's easier to brush my teeth and rinse

    2. With the positive pressure, it's much easier to clean a crevice

    3. It is healthier to stand than sit, and it's not so easy to smoke in the shower.

  3. Sparky, You are so right, math is hard for the 'unedumacated' that's why they are feeling that bern.

    dr hirkimer, you know full well that your boy T wouldn't fork over $20 of his own money unless the cameras were rolling... he hasn't even turned over the money he collected that was intended for the veterans, though I'm sure he'll get around to it, believe him.

    On puzzle 3, you have demonstrated you possess a vertically thinking dirty mind. Congratulations winner!

  4. Were those three guys gay? And was there a 3 dollar bill involved?

  5. Kid, yes! You are asking the questions that must be asked. Follow the money. Even if a $3 bill must be dragged thru barney frank's basement.
