Logic Lesson...Critical Thinking

  1. A DON was giving a lesson in logic.

    "Here is the situation," she said.

    "A man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yelling for help. His wife hears the commotion, knows he can't swim, and runs down to the bank.

    Why do you think she ran to the bank?"

    #1) she knows he can't swim and is playing the I can't swim widow to be............(sorry dark side coming out)
    #2) she then turns from the bank and calls 911 because that ensures the best chance of his survival......
    #3) along with #2 above.......she then runs back into the lake and tries to save the husband that isn't wearing his lifejacket and they both drown before the paramedics get there..........

    Cuz she knows she is not the beneficiary and wants to convert the assets to cash and hide them before the will is read?
