The Flying Riddle
Gone with the wind, am I in the sky?
Not sure if this would work, but it’s based off a method we use for plugin trouble shooting:
Get one prisoner to drink from 500 bottles. If he becomes poisoned get another prisoner to drink half of those 500 bottles, otherwise the next prisoner drinks half of the other 500 bottles. Repeat until you only have one bottle left — the poisoned bottle.
Actually that’s 252 (and Céline Racicot, not 251 cauz 0 counts too: the bottle nobody touched is one combination). But if you add up all the C(10,0), C(10,1), C(10,2), C(10,2) up to C(10,10) you get 1024 just like Brett Berry. In fact it comes back to doing the same thing but in not the same order. In this method, we have no testers take of the first…
