And in response, thus spake the Oracle:
} Well, let's see. If the answer was funny, then the Supplicant won the
} bet and got the $5. I am omniscient. I told the Supplicant that he
} lost the bet. Therefore, the answer was not funny. But you found it
} funny. There's a bit of a contradiction here. The two possibilities
} are: 1) I was wrong. 2) You are wrong. Now, since I'm omniscient,
} clearly I'm not wrong. Therefore, you obviously are.
} >But I found it funny! How can you say I'm wrong to find it funny?
} Ah, you see, you didn't really find it funny, you only thought you did.
} >That doesn't make sense. If I thought I found it funny, then I found
} >it funny.
} >Ah hah! I've got you caught in a contradiction!
} No you haven't. I've got it. The statement was simultaneously funny
} and not funny. When each observer observes a copy of the statement, he
} collapses its "funny waveform" to either the "funny" or "not funny"
} state. Since the statement is temporarily stored on each observer's
} computer, your collapsing the waveform to "funny" didn't prevent the
} Supplicant from collapsing his copy to "not funny."
} >But that still doesn't work. You're saying that you knew that the

} You owe the Oracle a nice, straightforward question about woodchucks or
