In each month’s Critical Links, I will pose a “funny problem”. Some will be paradoxes; some will be weird things to think through. Generally they will have a popular science and philosophy feel, though some are taken from undergraduate-level discussions as well. Feel free to write back with comments, questions, and any feedback you wish. In each subsequent column, I will discuss the feedback and more details about the previous problem and introduce a new one.
Let’s begin and reason together!
