Answer to the Riddle

Interesting. I had a phonecall from a specialist team this morning and they asked me what was up. I said to these people:

"Well it's interesting, I have no appetite. But I'm frustrated because I'm hungry now from not eating. This *does* make sense, right??!"

"Ah. Sounds like you may be blocked. We'll get an xray done in the morning and just confirm that."

I would estimate that educated guess took about 7 seconds.

I didn't get a patronising laugh either.

I love professionals who are professional.

Riddle of the day

I'm at a loss as to which bit of this is so confusing:

"I have zero appetite at the moment. I'm really hungry because what with having no appetite, I haven't been eating."

I don't personally understand how someone with a reasonable ability to follow basic logic can find it so puzzling. Unless they like to snicker and laugh and be patronising for a living. Because "well if you're so hungry why don't you just eat, then, problem solved?" is the logical advice after struggling with aforementioned problem for three to four minutes which I received.


I'm very busy with reading and thesis and going out and general final year stuff, I am happy to report.
