A Riddle


Recommended Posts

The riddle is impossible to solve, because you did not tell us how often you wear a Coldplay shirt. if I knew that I could figure it out.


edit: you would also have to say exactly how many "other" shirts you have. "30+" is not an exact number.... in other words.. this riddle is unsolvable.

NO cos Briggins doesn't like Coldplay :rolleyes:


Well I did travel to Texas to see them.


well if he said that he has 2 coldplay shirts, then it's possible that he's wearing one of them ;)


It is possible that I am.

But also possible that I am not.

It's not a riddle - it's a question of probability. You have a 2 in 30 chance, or a 1 in 15 chance of wearing a Coldplay shirt on any given day, or to be more exact, you are 6.666666% likely to be wearing one of your Coldplay shirts, thus on that basis, I conclude it is far more probable that today you are not wearing a Coldplay shirt.

no...this is probably wrong so here it goes anyways...u asked if u were wearing any coldplay shirts...and then u said u always wear tshirts...so no u are not wearing a coldplay shirt...haha this is probably wrong...



that was gonna be my answer...thats all i could come up with.


but Mr. Briggins why are you buying shirts if all you wear is tshirts?

does this riddle have to do something with wether the glass is half full or half empty....?

then i would suggest it's half full - errrhhh i mean: yes he owns a coldplay t-shirt.(harrumph):glasses:





just kidding.....













ok ok...it really seems to be a question of calculus of probability, a pure maths-question, right? more than a riddle i think. it's like asking, well... the sun shines on 15 days a year, the year has 365 days...so does the sun shine?


(correct answer: just look out of the window dude!) :P
