Lets assume that the old saying "nice guys always finish last" is true. A running race is held around the block with five people competing. Two nice guys are in the race. To finish the race, a runner must cross through a gate fit to hold only one person at a time. Who will finish last? Under what conditions? OOps forgot to mention, for clarity's sake that all persons competing in the race have the intention of winning. The first part is pretty obvious if you take everything said above literally, but you must solve the second portion to solve the entire riddle. I made this up myself, and I'm just learning preliminary formal logic, so forgive me if later it turns out that I phrased something wrong. Though I think everything is ok, I'm really not sure.
