Being obsessed with paradoxes. Sort of like when a quizzical person is obsessed with giving quizzes!

 

Is your favorite villain The Riddler?

What kind of paradoxes do you like?

Can you give an example?

My personal favorite is the barbershop paradox.

 

There is a small town. In this small town, there is a single barber. This barber shaves all those, and those only, who do not shave themselves.

 

Who shaves the barber?

 

This is similar to the paradox of whether or not the set of all sets that do not contain themselves contains itself. But that's math theory, and a bit too complicated to quickly understand for most people.

Are you tasty? Do you taste paradoxical?

I find myself tasty. I guess I may taste paradoxical in that way?

Yes. 

 

Wouldn't that mean the Barber is a female?

Or has a beard?

If it were a riddle, the Barber is female. But the paradox usually includes that the barber is male. Coincidentally, I also love riddles such as the barbershop riddle. Those types of riddles are called Lateral Thinking Puzzles, and I find a lot of delight in trying to figure out their solutions. An example of these kinds of riddles is actually well known as the Door of Truth/Door of Lies.

      *the room darkens slightly as mystical bolts of colour fly inside, each swirling around a central point and coming closer and closer until they combine to form into Pezler the Polychromatic* Greetings from the Wizard Most Wild, everyone! As you may know, I came from another place some time ago during my travels. I'm a wild mage, planes traveler, tavern owner, demiplane creator, and member of the Scroll of the Month Club. I have journeyed through many planes of existence in my 3154 years, and have seen many wondrous things! I have known vampyres, gods, demons and faeries, and have met many more interesting people since coming here! I am single, enjoy casting new spells, creating magic items, shapechanging, long walks on the Astral Plane, and.....*shuffles through the loose pages in his hands*....whoops, that's my singles ad. *tosses pages over his shoulder, walks along vast rows of books and scrolls* Well, since I'm here, I am a vast repository of knowledge and invite you to take advantage of all the research that this epic-level mage has done. Ask about all things mundane and arcane, secular and divine, local and multiversal! No question is too odd, and the answers may surprise you! Reasonable rates!
       
      Revel in the chaos, everyone!

      The Three Color Challenge is the brain child of forumite (and CMPA member) skippen. The idea is to select a miniature, then select, or have someone else select, three colors with which to paint the figure. Black and White are added to allow for highlighting and shading and color mixing is allowed and encouraged. The idea is that by limiting the palette and maybe using colors that may fall outside of one's comfort range, something could be learned.
       
      If you wish to participate in this challenge, please do! If you're struggling with colors and lack friends who are willing to give you opinions, look in the spoiler tag below. When it comes to picking the colors, the idea behind the colors isn't to pick strange combinations or to make this intentionally difficult based on the color choices. You'll find it hard enough to operate without proper flesh tones or metallic paints. I found it a good suggestion because I had to stretch myself and use some paints in combinations I wouldn't have otherwise. Overall, the point is to have fun!

      I reserve the right to not answer certain questions..
       
      Be aware of the different timezone...I might answer next day.

      I've really enjoyed reading all of the Ask Me Anything threads and getting to know people better, so I finally decided to start one of my own.
       
      Feel free to ask me about anything: my likes, dislikes, past, present, future, family, footwear, etc. A silly question will likely receive a silly answer, and I reserve the right to respond to any question with cute cat pictures. Because if there's one thing this forum needs, it's more cute cat pictures.  
       
      Huzzah!
