Geek’s Questions: The Art of Asking Yourself

A group of friends visit me. They eat and drink everything, even the cat’s food, and then leave. The fridge is empty – only a glass of milk is left. I give half of the milk to my cat Ben. He drinks half of it and then I drink half of what is left. Again, he drinks half of what is left and then I do the same. We continue until nothing is left. What proportion of the initial amount of milk did I drink in total?

I remember the moment when I saw Jane for the first time. We were sitting at the same table at a tea room along with Mary and John. We looked at each other and I was sure that everybody immediately chooses another. If two boys and two girls choose a partner, then what is the probability that everybody chooses the person who chooses them?

Before I met Jane I had a relationship with three girls who lived in the same house. I sent three letters to them. If the postman put the letters into three different boxes without looking at the name of the recipient, what would be the probability that all girls received their letters?
