The Grand Master takes a set of 8 stamps, 4 red and 4 green, known to the logicians, and loosely affixes two to the forehead of each logician so that each logician can see all the other stamps except those 2 in the Grand Master's pocket and the two on her own forehead. He asks them in turn if they know the colors of their own stamps:
A: "No."
B: "No."
C: "No."
A: "No."
B: "Yes."

Jim keeps all his ties in a drawer.

He has 7 yellow, 10 blue, 9 red, 20 green and 3 purple colored ties.

He does not sort and keep them.

There is a power outage and Jim needs 2 ties of the same color.

Since he cannot see which color he is picking up from the drawer, how many ties does Jim have to take to be sure that he has at least 2 ties of the same color?

I am a pinkish color, and have a roundish shape in you. I am very soft, and you should protect me, because I am very important, and you need me to live. All the other animals need me, but not plants. For their size, I was small in a dinosaur, and I am much larger in you. Now tell me, what am I?

I can be any color you can imagine.
You see me in everyday life.
I have been around for many, many years, look around...
You can probably see some of me right now.
