    OK, another old (and easy) one:

    A couple have two children. You knock at their door, and one of their two children, a girl opens the door. What is the probability that the other child is also a girl?

    Ehm 50% there is no link between the sex of the 2 kids so it should be default probability which is (about) 50%

    Ah gotha (I think)
    is the trick that the 'girl' that opens the door could be the mother and not perse one of the kids?

    Man, I gotta start doing something productive...I'm stuck thinking about old riddles....so, here's another:

    A man goes to visit a prison inmate. The guard tells him that only relatives are allowed to visit and asks what his relationship is to the prisoner. The man replies "brothers and sisters I have none, but that man's father is my fathers son." The guard lets him in. What is the relationship of the visitor to the prisoner?

    In the same line:

    'It is not my brother, but still he is the son of my father, who is he?'

    Correct! So the answer is 1/3....
