This is a spin off game from Don Keyote's

Rock, Paper and Scissors  scam, oops I meant  fair and honest game!

 

I have two questions for anyone who likes intellectual games.

winner has to get both correct using his logic and reasoning skills.

Ten human beings are running a race for a prize. Who do you bet on and why?

Ten men are running a race for a prize. who do you bet on and why?

Don Replied with this:

Too vague. I'm a betting man. I need more information before putting my money down.

Not every runner wants to win every race.

My reply to his accusation that it was too VAGUE.

These two races are not the same and the nature of the contestants in each race should allow a wise gambler to make an informed choice.

I would place a bet that gives me a good chance of picking a winner based on the nature of the contestants involved.

I have to be vague or it becomes too easy. The only hint I will give is in this post.

Pretend you know every contestant personally. All 20 contestants are people you know.

 

I suspect only the bravest and most astute intellects will even try to answer.

Maybe one or two from the entire sites membership pool. 

Be fearless and prove me wrong. I am not scared of giving incorrect answers.

I have been wrong many times through out my 56 years. It was painless.

I was bound to be misunderstood, and I laugh at the idiots who misunderstand me! Kind mockery toward the well-intentioned and unfettered cruelty toward all would-be prison guards of my creative possibilities. In this way I learn to revel as much in misunderstanding as in understanding and take pleasure in worthy opponents. Making language fluid, flowing like a river, yet precise and pointed as a dirk, contradicts the socialistic purpose of language and makes for a wonderful verbal dance—a linguistic martial art with constant parries that hone the weapon that is the two edged sword of my mouth.

I'll kick it off by transferring my answer from the other post - 

It would depend on their individual athleticism to a large extent. But, I suppose that your question is more of a metaphorical question.

If i was to hazard a guess, would the human being race be won by a male who was trying to win the prize for himself, the man race by a man trying to win the prize for someone else? 

Am I on the right lines?

 

See...BS and Tower...at least MY game gave you a reasonable chance of success. You'll never win Harpo's!!! You'll all be begging for my next thread - 'The game of skill...pick a colour, Red or Blue?'

Teach them Harpo!!!

Don keyote asked: Am I on the right lines?

You did deduct that their is a difference between an adult male human being and a man!

You did determine that the most selfish among the humans would try the hardest. 

If  I know the contestants I would know the most selfish among the humans.

Yes to the first race you are correct.  You may not choose the winner but you will choose the one who will try the hardest.

Giving yourself a good chance of picking a winner based on the nature of the contestants.

Don Wrote: the man race by a man trying to win the prize for someone else? 

Only someone among the contestants can win. Not someone else. Your answer is to VAGUE.

My hats off to your attempt.  Your understanding or intellect shines out non the less!

You broke even at the track!

It'sallbs   asked:  An aeroplane crashes on the border between Canada and America. Where do you bury the survivors?

Knowing that all the survivors are mortal and will someday die.

I would allow that their right to be buried where ever they choose be honored.

I have not the authority to choose anyone else's final resting place.

 

If we are going to ask obvious trick questions then answer me this:

If it takes a day and a half for a hen and a half to lay an egg and a half,

how long would it take a rooster sitting on a

metal doorknob to hatch out a hardware store?

I like the feeling of freedom that comes from staying outdoors so I would gather the oil lamp,wood and newspaper and return from where I came.

Then read the newspaper and save it to wipe my ass with when the need arose.

I am not scared of the dark! 

yet I would wait until night time before lighting the match first,

and use it to make my outdoor campfire of wood and cook what ever I had to eat.

The oil lamp is useless when the oil is gone and too bulky and cumbersome to be packing around.

The lamp is just for barter. Would trade it for more matches or magnifying glass.

The man race is more a sure thing than the human contest. why?

I would always pick the correct man yet the most selfish human

may not win because of physical ability being factored in..

I only know the most selfish would try harder. I don't know if he is actually faster.

Sorry BS,  although I am a simple man I like being specific instead of generalizing, so the simple answers do

not always work for the most interesting of people.

Most of the real interesting people I have ever met and the ones I learn the most from,

are those who give reasons for their beliefs and choices they make.

Many will tell you their views and expect you to accept them without question.

Few are willing to tell you the reason they choose to have them.

Don was correct with his answer to the first race.

I still hold that when ten men race for a prize the winner is more easy to figure out.

I have good reason to believe its true.
