A couple of logic puzzles

Logic is fun because logic explains things.  Spock has always been one of my heroes because he devotes himself to Logic as the source of his being.  Kirk might get lucky — in fact, the basis of Kirk’s character is that he’s pretty lucky — but Spock is reliable.  But this isn’t to start wading into a Trekkie war of character assassination.  It’s about logic.

I came across a couple of videos while perusing the intertubes; that pretty clearly lay out and then explain some logic puzzles.  Have a look:

I will say this if you’re reading before you’ve had a gander at the vids.  The bridge riddle is the old “cross a river with only one boat” riddle redressed.  The hat riddle was new to me, and was pretty interesting.

Things that make you go hmmm.
