## The missing dollar

Three people check into a hotel room. The bill is \$30 so they each pay \$10. After they go to the room, the hotel's cashier realizes that the bill should have only been \$25. So he gives \$5 to the bellhop and tells him to return the money to the guests. The bellhop notices that \$5 can't be split evenly between the three guests, so he keeps \$2 for himself and then gives the other \$3 to the guests. Now the guests, with their dollars back, have each paid \$9 for a total of \$27. And the bellhop has pocketed \$2. So there is \$27 + \$2 = \$29 accounted for. But the guests originally paid \$30. What happened to the other dollar?
This riddle is just an example of misdirection. It is actually nonsensical to add \$27 + \$2, because the \$27 that has been paid includes the \$2 the bellhop made. The correct math is to say that the guests paid \$27, and the bellhop took \$2, which, if given back to the guests, would bring them to their correct payment of \$27 - \$2 = \$25.

## Miraculously unhurt

Brad starred through the dirty soot-smeared window on the 22nd floor of the office tower. Overcome with depression he slid the window open and jumped through it. It was a sheer drop outside the building to the ground. Miraculously after he landed he was completely unhurt. Since there was nothing to cushion his fall or slow his descent, how could he have survived the fall?
Brad was so sick and tired of window washing, he opened the window and jumped inside.
