    Default Your Favourite Paradox?

    I love paradoxes; I can't get enough of them... so I thought I'd start a paradox thread! ^ ^

    Got a paradox that you think is awesome and would like to show/tell to the rest of the world? If so then post it here!

    Text or image is fine.

    Paradox rating also welcome! ^ ^

    So, to start things off, here's my favourite paradox:

    Ah, the good old Pinocchio paradox. I heard somebody actually found a way to solve it, all I could remember was that I didn't understand the dude. ^^'

    Opposite Day: "It is opposite day today." Therefore it is not opposite day, but if you say it is a normal day it would be considered a normal day.

    Anytime someone tried declaring it to be opposite day when I was a kid, I'd call them out on it by pointing out this paradox.

    I have created my own theory on time paradoxes It starts with theoretical time travel. Basically, you go into a time machine, go back in time, the past is then obviously altered by your presence as a time traveler, and thus the events leading up to and past the moment you stepped into the time machine will be altered even if only slightly. The process should and will repeat itself until a single conclusion is found to then repeat itself infinitely, and only then can time finally progress forward as it should.

    An example would be you, as motivated and very outgoing person, in the year 2040, go back in time; talk to your grandfather in the year 1990; an alternate tangent of reality is then created in which you now, in the year 2040, going back in time but as a motivated yet calm and collected person; and now you alter the past as a calm, collected person for which will result in another tangent in time being created different from the first; and this process will repeat itself until a single conclusion is repeated over and over again indefinitely.

    A way to explain it using mathematics would be like this:

    X = past; Y = the newly created past

    X/3 + 2 = Y; X will initially be "7"

    7/3 + 2 = 4.3

    4.3/3 + 2 = 3.4

    3.4/3 + 2 = 3.148

    3.148/3 + 2 = 3.049382716

    3.049382716/3 + 2 = 3.016460905349794238683127572

    Repeat this equation infinitely and the number will get as close as you possibly can to equaling "3" for which repeats infinitely. I hope I made sense explaining this. It's been a theory I've held to for a very long time.

    So, to start things off, here's my favourite paradox:

    Not a paradox. Pinocchio's nose doesn't grow every time he lies. He can lie and his nose won't grow at all. In the original story of Pinocchio, he dies from hanging but he's found by the fairy which gives him the medicine. Pinocchio doesn't want to drink the medicine and when asked if he does not fear death, he says he doesn't and he would rather die than drink the medicine. When the rabbits come in with a coffin, he sings a different tune and drinks the medicine because he doesn't want to die. So, he has lied but his nose has not grown. His nose does grow however, when asked what happened with the gold coins, he says he lost them but they're in his pocket.

    It seems that his nose grows when he lies during interrogation.
