    Why did you post it in the quantum physics forum ?

    No offense : I always liked this puzzle. But it should go somewhere else in my opinion :shy:

    The smallest of devation away from "true", can result in a false input of information observed (big-gap-missing observation).

    Observation is what we rely on for perception of reality, but if you think observation has no baring on Quantum Physics, so be it, end of disscussion.

    Very clever, but it ain't quantum physics. Off to Math with ye!

    Thiss seems to come up once every two months or so.

    look at the two smaller triangles, do actually think they are similar, which they'd need to be for this paradox to actually be a paradox

    Hint: Take a screen shot, open it in paint, and move one triangle over the other. (try moving each on top of the other) :thumbs_up
