The Bear Hunter
Famous part 1
A man leaves home, and walks a mile south.
He hasn’t found a bear, so he turns east, and continues walking.
After a mile of walking east, and still seeing no bears, he turns north.
After another mile of walking, he arrives back home, where he finds a bear rooting through his garbage, so he shoots it right there on the spot (with a camera!)
What color is the bear?
If you are finding that something doesn’t quite add up, consider that one of your assumptions might be false.
Seek a new angle by which to consider the situation, or by which you might discover which assumptions you’ve made without noticing. What could you change, that would make things add up correctly?
Challenge part 2
The correct answer is not obvious to everyone at first glance, because it seems like something is amiss, but it all makes sense upon consideration of the situation.
Well it was recently discovered that such a situation can occur somewhere else entirely!
In fact, there are an infinite number of places…where are they, exactly?
