Has anyone read The Lady or the Tiger? It’s not bad. A young man is put in an arena and faces two doors. One has a man-eating tiger, the other a young maiden.  The man must pick what door to open. Before he does this he looks to the king. Sitting next to him is the princess, who is smitten with the man. She flashes him a number. The question is does the man go to the door that the princess shows him. Is she sending him to the woman he loves, or to his death? Or is she using reverse psychology and telling him the right door knowing he’ll do the opposite and go to wrong one? It’s a logical spiral that’s kind of fun to think about. Check it out.
