Last night, we had a big group of friends over for some glow-in-the-dark ultimate Frisbee. One team would wear glowing green wristbands, and the other would wear red. We had a blast!

“Who has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as his counselor? Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?”

“Jesus called them together and said, ‘You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.’”

“As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. ‘I tell you the truth,’ he said, ‘this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.’”

I guess it depends on your method of choosing randomly. Does the duplicate answer get two chances?

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 @ 9:57 PM Central

Ah, but by there being only three real choices, doesn’t that make it a one-in-three chance? Because the second “25%” can be thrown out, the way I figure.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 @ 9:10 PM Central

But don’t your odds of getting it right depend on which one you choose?

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 @ 9:09 PM Central

Well, if two choices are the same, then there are really just three choices, right? So you’d have a one-in-three chance of getting it right, so 33% would be right, right?

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 @ 8:46 PM Central

I think if you guess 25%, there’s a 50% chance you’ll be right, but then if you guess 50% or 60%, you’ve got a… 25% chance…? Is it impossible to be right??

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 @ 8:40 PM Central

How did you come up with 33%?

Waaaaaait… wouldn’t it be 33%?

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”

“The man answered, ‘Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly man who does his will. Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.’ To this they replied, ‘You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!’ And they threw him out.”
