If person 7 ("At most there are 6 honest people in this room") is honest, then he and the 5 people after him are honest, this meanes there are 6 honest people.

When you are inside the womb, all 9 "doors" are closed except for your navel and when you are born, you open all nine, and your navel closes.

An entire town had been painted black; the roads, pavements, buildings, hedges, and everything that did not move had been painted black. In addition, my vehicle's headlights were not working, no moon was visible, and power was off in the area, so there were no street or house lights around. At that moment, I entered a curve where a solid black dog (deaf, and thus unaware of the approaching car) was sitting in the road. He had his back to me, so there was not even a glint in his eye, yet I was able to swerve round him quite easily and without danger. How was this achieved?
