I don't really think, spam can be itellegent. but who knows, so many things we don't know about this world. Sometimes Spam can be the best option - the only option availible. As a wise man said

It´s not really intellectual and i quoted it wrong, it must be 2 men go in, 1 man comes out. It´s from the movie mad max.

Here´s a riddle.
What has a bed, but can´t sleep?
;)

Bees got it :) It´s a river.

Next riddle: A peasant wants to cross a river. He has a sheep, a head of cabbage and a wolf on his side of the river. He can only carry one item in his small boat. When he leaves the sheep alone wiht the wolf, the wolf will eat the sheep. When he leaves the cabbage head alone with the sheep, the sheep will eat the cabbage head. How will the peasant get everything across the river? Keep in mind, nothing may be eaten!

Move sheep across, then come back for cabbage, take it across, then take sheep back, take wolf to other side, and leave sheep alone. Wolf won't eat cabbage on other side. Then come back for sheep. Simple.

Now my math riddle:

Does the sum: " 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 .......(to infinity) " equal 0 or 1 ?

Try to resist google-ing it :D

i cant help but feel this cambridge fella's time could be better spent solving more relevant engineering questions instead of playing with numbers trying to answer questions that has no meaning in the real world. And in the end, he didnt even answer his own question, he only gave possibilities based on different mathematical arguments. because its an open question, one designed to make people think rather than to be solved.

I disagree. These kind of math questions (puzzles, whatever) have more meaning than games we are playing every day xD (my opinion). And he kinda gave us proof that this sum equals 1/2, so why isn't it solved then? :D There are no different mathematical arguments, there is just one, the one he showed us as a proof (1/2). Those 1 or 0 are just answers that our common sense gives us, he wanted to show us that this is false.

That is how I understood the video, and I found it very amusing :)
