May 16 - If you own a computer then play this game for 1 minute

Isn't that headline interesting?  Could you read the headline without being at a computer.   How does owning a computer change whether you should play "the game" or not? I wonder about how that logic motivates people to click the link.

What would we do to improve our logic skills?  There are serious websites such as and they have three categories:  logical reasoning and planning, spatial perception and logical thinking, and logical and mathematical thinking skills.  They are targeted to children to engage in the 'games' to improve their skills.  Another site - the one that is the top item on the google list identified ten creative tips, and then shows six.   This six seem hilariously illogical - and perhaps an excellent example of how google's focus on revenues have interfered with retrieval results:
  1. Dance Your Heart Out. ... 
  2. Work out Your Brain with Logic Puzzles or Games. ... 
  3. Get a Good Night's Sleep. ... 
  4. Work out to Some Tunes. ... 
  5. Keep an “Idea Journal” with You. ... 
  6. Participate in Yoga.
The list made me laugh, so I went on to find a logic joke:

Jean-Paul Sartre is sitting at a French cafe, revising his draft of 'Being and Nothingness'.
He says to the waitress, "I'd like a cup of coffee, please, with no cream."
The waitress replies, "I'm sorry, monsieur, but we're out of cream. How about with no milk?"

The joke is followed by a list of Oxymorons.  It seems that seeing them together makes them more funny.
  1. Act naturally
  2. Almost exactly
  3. Alone together
  4. Business ethics
  5. Clearly misunderstood
  6. Computer security
  7. Diet ice cream
  8. Exact estimate
  9. Found missing
  10. Genuine imitation
  11. Good grief
  12. New classic
