@aventine and @fsandlewould: I think you underestimate Cruz. A media caricature which has never been anywhere close to an accurate depiction of the man will mean nothing when Cruz is seen publicly mopping the floor with Hillary, Bernie, or whatever joker wins the Democrat nomination. The man is not only extremely intelligent with a steel-trap memory, but I contend in dealing with the media and opponents he knows exactly what his strategy is and how he comes off publicly, much like Reagan knew how to handle the media. In terms of sounding “too smart” for the average American voter I also have to disagree. He knows how to resonate with the concerns of the general public and has an extremely common-sense approach to these issues. You should notice that unlike most politicians when he’s asked a question he gives a direct answer and does not shy away from convincingly explaining his positions which the media tries to paint as “extreme.” Whereas Trump is not afraid of the media or opponents due to sheer confidence regardless of his knowledge base, Cruz is not afraid of the media or opponents because he knows more than they do, knows he’s right, and can explain his position fully so that anyone can understand if they have an open mind. You see how people love it when Trump slams his detractors – I say that given the spotlight Cruz will be able to top that because he’ll always have the ammunition to win any argument.

Well, it’s obviously the same phenomenon that killed Lois Lane in the original Superman movie, that is until Superman flew really fast around the Earth in order to reverse time and save her. Too bad he couldn’t have just flown that fast to save her in the first place, so as to avoid messing with the whole space-time continuum thing.

Wasn’t there like a record number of utterances of the n-word in one of his movies? I certainly remember his character in Pulp Fiction repeatedly saying it. Way to take the lead on race issues there, Quentin.

Dude, you are all over the map here. Go take double your usual dose of Haldol and see if you can come up with something more coherent. It’s OK, we’ll wait…

It’s not surprising that he doesn’t understand the difference between:
A) an organization of citizens, exercising their right of free speech through their chosen representative, calling for a voluntary boycott by suggesting people choose not to spend their own money to watch his movies, and
B) actual suppression of free speech.

The ironic thing is that what we’re discussing here is a solution in search of a problem. First the socialists invent the impending catastrophe of climate change, then they say that only socialism can fix it. Gee who could have seen that coming?

I’d hate to imagine what the congressman would do if he happened to use a bathroom stall right after the Pope had.
You are incorrect. No assumptions need to be made. It is a purely deductive logic puzzle.

It’s a logic question, not strictly a “math” question. However, I think if more students were taught how to reason through logic problems such as this we’d have far fewer irrational leftists wandering around.
It's a logic problem. But the problem is it can't be answered as it's written. The answer they intend you to arrive at cannot be arrived at with the information given. It's a poorly written question by someone starting with an answer and trying to reverse engineer a question for it, but they failed miserably.
If I accept your premise that its a logic question, then the answer can only be: "Cheryl didn't say and neither Albert nor Bernard revealed what she told them... Cheryl provided them with 10 'possible dates' (all dates are possible, wink), nowhere does it say one of them is the 'actual date' (words have meanings, for a reason or we could use the same word or grunt to answer all questions... I am Groot?)... I have a sister named Cheryl and she is a well documented liar that likes to lead others on play games with their heads (like every other Cheryl I have met to date... who is to say this Cheryl is any different?)... In conclusion, no one knows the actual date but Cheryl so what she told them is immaterial (hearsay and not admissible in any court for obvious reasons... she could have lied to them and or given them each a different date and added don't tell, I'll meet you behind the school and let you touch my nether regions (just as plausible as her having given them any date what so ever).
I had hoped you had noticed it wasn't even a question on a test given in this country (but I used it to complain about teacher unions in this country), wink... by the way my name is actually Cheryl... tah tah.

… and that remaining date in July is July 16.
 April 14, 2015 at 2:47am
You were so close up until #4! Your explanation is very concise.
(4) Albert, upon hearing that Bernard knows the correct birthday month between July or August based on his already knowing the date number, deduces for himself that the date number must be unique to either July or August, ruling out July 14 and August 14 and leaving July 16, August 15, and August 17. Albert already knows which month the birthday is in, having been told at the outset by Cheryl. If Albert knew the birthday was in August he would still not be able to deduce the date number since it could be either the 15th or the 17th. However, since Albert is able to deduce the date number, he must know it is in July since that is the only remaining month with a unique date in it.
I dunno, from his perspective I bet he’s loving it. It sounds like he seeks out situations involving police in order to assess whether people’s rights are being violated. I guess he’s policing the police. So I bet he’s chalking this one up as a victory.
Yeah sooner or later he will do something wrong that will get him in trouble and he will end up in jail.
He did very clearly state: "I do this for a living".

He’s here… He’s here! Now broadcasting from the underground command post, deep in the bowels of a hidden bunker, somewhere under the brick and steel of a nondescript building, we’ve once again made contact with our leader… Mark Levin!

Wow, she got those domestic violence charges dropped by doing some required consoling… “There there, did the mean lady hit you and cause bruisey woosies?”
Must be some of that creative restitution I’ve heard about.

Hey, at least she was (probably accidentally) honest when she called it “laundering the money.”
 September 23, 2014 at 11:45pm
Does it strike anyone else as massively ironic that she considers a tip from Rush “blood money” which can only be “laundered” by using it to fund abortions? That is some messed-up logic.
