As you are traveling in the kingdom of Jerafa, you come upon a boy and a girl who are dressed exactly alike.
"I'm a boy," says the one with red hair.
A half-hour ago you parked your car facing east on a straight road that runs east and west. You get in and start driving. After driving for a few minutes, you find that you are now a mile west of your starting point. Why?
Ruling over the kingdom of Komosay was a very powerful king who had a beautiful daughter named Yamah. When Yamah fell in love with a poor peasant boy, the king was shocked and distressed. To show how fair he was, however, he promised to give the boy a 50-50 chance to marry his daughter by letting him choose one of two slips of paper. On one piece of paper would be written the word Marriage; on the other, the word Death. Because of his great love for Yamah, the boy agreed to take this risk.
As he came near to the castle on the fateful day, he happened to overhear a conversation between the king and one of his attendants:
"Your Majesty," said the attendant, "how can you do this thing, and let that unworthy boy have a chance of marrying your daughter?"
The deceitful king laughed and said, "The way I will do it, he will have no chance. I will write the word DEATH on both pieces of paper. But of course, he will not know that; he will think he has chosen the wrong piece of paper."
When the boy heard that, he was stunned, and didn't know what to do. But then he thought of a clever solution to the problem. When the time came to choose, he put his plan into action. The next day he and the princess were married.
What was his solution?
