### What are some funny Call of Duty jokes?

Some of the funny ones are the ones you can look up, like the
"you know you're addicted to Call of Duty when..." jokes. This is
one example: you know you're addicted to Call of Duty when you go
into your boss' office, pick up his suitcase, make some beeping
noises, say "bomb disarmed", and throw it out the window.
Hitler had 7 million kills and just 1 death. Guess what? he was
a freaking CAMPER.

### What is considered the hardest riddle in the world?

It's Apparently Still a Riddle...
There seem to be various contenders for what is considered
the hardest riddle in the world. Here are some brain-twisting
responses from WikiAnswers contributors:
1)
I turn polar bears white
And I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
And girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
And normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
And make your champagne bubble.
If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you answer this riddle? - 97% of Harvard graduates
couldn't answer this, but 84% of kindergarten students could (in
less than 6 minutes).
Answer: The answer is "pressure," although some
people have argued that the answer is "time" because it refers to
the following poem. The simple answer is either Yes or No, because
that is what the question literally asks, and kids would give up
sooner.
Time
The time has come,
winter is here
and those yellow bears disappear.
The time has past
as man looks back with a sigh
and a tear in his eye.
As time is held
boys cross their legs
but of course the toilet begs
As time marches on
Girls loose their blush
and swap a comb for their brush
As time passes
For those held high
their end is nigh
As time catches up
Everyone is equal
when we get to the final sequel
As time turns
Without it we have flour and water
With it we have breakfast for my daughter
As time revolves
into something so fine
As time runs out
The more in a minute you try and squeeze
the less you can do with ease.
As time ticks
All the time that has past
man cannot comprehend something so vast.

2) The Chicken Riddle
If a chicken says, "All Chickens are liars" is the chicken
telling the truth?
Answer: Chickens can't talk!
3) Village of Truths/Village of Lies
A man is traveling to a town and comes to a fork in the road. If
he goes left, he goes to the liars' village. If he goes right, he
then goes to the village of truths - which is where he wants to go.
However, he does not know which way is which.
He doesn't have time to go both routes, so he approaches a
stranger who is standing in the middle of the fork. The stranger
says he may only ask 3 questions and he will answer them.
The man asks, "Are you from the village of truths?" The stranger
says, "Yes!" However, the man is still facing a dilemma: If the
stranger was from the village of truths he can only tell the truth,
but if he was from the village of liars, he would say he was from
the village of truth.
So then he asks the stranger, "Are you telling the truth?" The
stranger says, "Yes!" But sadly this leaves the man in the same
position as before.
Can you figure it out ?
Answer: The man finally realizes that what he must do
is ask the stranger the path back to his own village. If he
was from village of truths, he takes him there. Even if he is from
the village of liars, he will still take him to the village of
truths.
4) What am I ?
If you look you cannot see me. And if you see me you cannot see
anything else. I can make anything you want happen, but later
everything goes back to normal. What am I?
Answer: Your imagination

### What is the answer to the blue eyes riddle?

The answer is that on the 100th day, all 100 blue-eyed people
will leave. It's pretty convoluted logic and it took me a while to
believe the solution, but here's a rough guide to how to get there.
Note -- while the text of the puzzle is very carefully worded to be
as clear and unambiguous as possible (thanks to countless
discussions with confused readers), this solution is pretty
thrown-together. It's correct, but the explanation/wording might
not be the best. If you're really confused by something, let me
know.
If you consider the case of just one blue-eyed person on the
island, you can show that he obviously leaves the first night,
because he knows he's the only one the Guru could be talking about.
He looks around and sees no one else, and knows he should leave.
So: [THEOREM 1] If there is one blue-eyed person, he leaves
the first night.
If there are two blue-eyed people, they will each look at the
other. They will each realize that "if I don't have blue
eyes [HYPOTHESIS 1], then that guy is the only
blue-eyed person. And if he's the only person, by THEOREM
1 he will leave tonight." They each wait and see, and when
neither of them leave the first night, each realizes "My
HYPOTHESIS 1 was incorrect. I must have blue eyes." And each
leaves the second night.
So: [THEOREM 2]: If there are two blue-eyed people on the
island, they will each leave the 2nd night.
If there are three blue-eyed people, each one will look at the
other two and go through a process similar to the one above. Each
considers the two possibilities -- "I have blue eyes" or "I don't
have blue eyes." He will know that if he doesn't have blue eyes,
there are only two blue-eyed people on the island -- the two he
sees. So he can wait two nights, and if no one leaves, he knows he
must have blue eyes -- THEOREM 2 says that if he didn't, the
other guys would have left. When he sees that they didn't, he knows
his eyes are blue. All three of them are doing this same process,
so they all figure it out on day 3 and leave.
This induction can continue all the way up to THEOREM 99,
which each person on the island in the problem will of course know
immediately. Then they'll each wait 99 days, see that the rest of
the group hasn't gone anywhere, and on the 100th night, they all
leave.
Before you email me to argue or question: This solution is
correct. My explanation may not be the clearest, and it's very
difficult to wrap your head around (at least, it was for me), but
the facts of it are accurate. I've talked the problem over with
many logic/math professors, worked through it with students, and
analyzed from a number of different angles. The answer is correct
and proven, even if my explanations aren't as clear as they could
be. If you're not convinced, you can contact me (info available on
my website) for further discussion. If you're satisfied with this
answer, here are a couple questions that may force you to further
explore the structure of the puzzle:
What is the quantified piece of information that the Guru
provides that each person did not already have?
Each person knows, from the beginning, that there are no less
than 99 blue-eyed people on the island. How, then, is considering
the 1 and 2-person cases relevant, if they can all rule them out
immediately as possibilities?
Why do they have to wait 99 nights if, on the first 98 or so of
these nights, they're simply verifying something that they already
know?
These are just to give you something to think about if you enjoyed
the main solution. They have answers, but please don't email me
asking for them. They're meant to prompt thought on the solution,
and each can be answered by considering the solution from the right
angle, in the right terms. There's a different way to think of the
solution involving hypotheticals inside hypotheticals, and it is
much more concrete, if a little harder to discuss. But in it lies
the key to answering the four questions above.
