Let's Hear It For The Boys
RAY: Here it is. If a mother has two kids and the older one is a boy. What are the chances the younger is a boy? OK.
RAY: Well, that's only half the puzzler.
TOM: I know this puzzler. This is a killer.
RAY: And the answer is 50-50. OK. You got that?
RAY: So, I'll give you that part.
TOM: Yeah. So, she's got a boy kid
RAY: Who's the older?
RAY: The mother has two kids. The older one is a boy, what are the chances the younger one is a boy?
RAY: Got it?
TOM: I'm with you on that.
RAY: You paying attention now?
RAY: Now, suppose that same mother. No. Suppose a different mother has two kids and one of them is a boy, what are the chances --
TOM: That the other one --
RAY: That the other one is a boy? Well, it's got to be 50-50. Right?
TOM: You would think.
TOM: Of course.
RAY: So, what are those chances? Now, if you're thinking --
TOM: And why? We want all the calculations, man.
RAY: I got them all right here, man. Cause Steve didn't send the answer, but, of course --
TOM: We don't need answers.
RAY: We don't need no... Oh yeah, we do need, just send the puzzler. Send the stinkin' answer.
TOM: Yeah. This is very good. Very good.
