A bunch of my Boy Scout friends and I play this with newcomers. You basically have to figure out if something’s a rose or not. Here’s an example:
If a rose is a rose, is it a rose? (Correct answer is no).
Listen, if that’s not a rose, and a rose is a rose, is a rose a rose? Yes it is.
Have fun driving yourselves crazy trying to figure out what makes it a rose. Anything could be an example.
(Is my yoyo a rose? No).
It ain’t not not not not not is not not not a rose, is it not not not not?
Think I got it!
Always starts out No and then it changes back and forth.
Ex. If a rose is a rose, and a rose is a rose which is a rose, is a rose a rose rose? Answer:(I think) Yes.
Nope, it’s not a rose.
Seriously, listen closely: If my yoyo is a rose, is my yoyo a rose? (Correct answer is yes).
And I’m not trolling, there is a way to tell.
Lol if you say
if a rose (a bunch of pointless jargon)… is a rose (repeat jargon)? Yes. If you never said anything in the if part then nothing can be assumed. Am I right?
This game is out of my poor comprehension abilities :-\
It’s extremely simple if you know what to look for. ;D
If you guys figure it out, don’t tell, at least for now.
So if my yoyo is not not a rose, but it’s not not not a rose, but it’s still a rose, is not not a rose that is not?
Ask a question someone, anyone!
Lol, I know what it is Noah…
because it is not a rose. A rose may be a rose, but it is not a rose.
a rose is a rose because a rose is a rose.
how about this:
It is always that, that is always a rose, and a rose is always that; however, that is not always it.
- Is it a rose?
- Is that a rose?
- Is a rose it?
I think I know the answers.
So far all those answers were wrong, @Philip and Yoyo.
Really guys lol, listen closely: If that kendama is a rose, and this thread is a rose, is my yoyo a rose? (Correct answer is yes).
I’ll tell you guys the trick in a day or 2.
Can you ask a question instead of making us ask ourselves questions?
If a yoyo is a rose, is it a rose? No
If a yoyo is a rose, is a rose a rose? Yes it is
What about this one: If a yoyo is not a rose, then is it a rose? No
