Broken Mirror V  
« on: Nov 10th, 2017, 2:25am »
Quote Quote Modify Modify

The riddle-maker greets his old friend who came by and tells him to sit in an armchair in the living room. He places a standing mirror on the table and says: “Prove that this mirror is broken w/o moving an inch.“ His friend is puzzled because — the mirror is not broken! or, at least, so it seems. But then, after a few minutes he has an idea and solves the riddle. What was his answer?

I got my MRI result. It appears, although I still feel pretty bad, - - - there is nothing wrong with me. Huh. Well then. Still, hurry up, giddyup, because, I FEEL as if I am still dying here which, according to my mortality, happens to be entirely true. And, doctors could be completely wrong. It wouldn't be first time. So, pretty please, with sugar on top, SOLVE THE RIDDLE. Thanks! (Not for your support.)

Perhaps you are the mirror, and the doctors are not clever enough yet to solve your riddle.

You wouldn't post a riddle that has no solution, right?*
 
So we can assume a solution exists to the riddle.
 
If a solution exists, the fact that this mirror is broken is provable.
 
And if it is provable, it is true.  QED.
 
* seriously, you wouldn't right?

Of course I wouldn't! Seriously. I believe we just reached an important topic: trust; or lack there of. You doubt my veracity? I ought to belt ya! but, you happen to be - - - Swiss. I myself don't  nurture such inhumane custom yet to some sacred traditions (like Klingons).  
 
Yes! there is a perfectly realistic solution. No special effect, let me tell you.  
 
A hint: An omitted detail, anyone? One will do.

The mirror lies destitute on the table; a mere reflection of its former self.  Now nothing more than a cheap prop, serving at the riddlemaker's whim.  It might not be broken in form, but it is definitely broken in spirit.

He tells the riddlemaker that the mirror doesn't show his reflection, and is therefore broken.  He doesn't tell the riddlemaker he is secretly a vampire.

The mirror makes him look old, but he feels young, so the mirror must be broken

Must I say the words? Actually, your answer is extremely witty. Alas, sometimes, humor is just not good enough. After all, women take love very very seriously even though it is an animal thing to do and the most basic superficial instinct. Mayhap same is true for certain riddles.  
 
I would accept your answer and wash your feet:
But I, being an atheist, I dislike Jesus;
But I have spread my riddles under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my riddles.

I modified the riddle just a bit just to include a bit of a hint. That's all. I am more than certain that now the riddle will be solved in no time.

That is quite an ask, given it took the riddle maker's friend at least a few minutes to solve it; and he could see the mirror!

Get on it. Time is wasting. Don't make me call Chronos! For HE is the true Death, camouflaged like a chameleon into - - - time. Ergo, time is but an illusion. Thank You.

... Are you sure about that, Frank? Of course you are. But, are You sure about your notion about the mirror?

Perhaps the friend shatters the mirror with his voice.

Actually, there is no need whatsoever to do something like that. See what I mean? Hint, anyone?

Mayhap Batman can assist you?! After all, he can see without eyes. He has beautiful eyes though.
