This is a classic riddle of mine. Please read the scenario below for the setup.
You are sitting around a campfire and a friend smiles and says:
Sam: I have a riddle.
Intrigued, you ask him what it is. He points to the tent you are staying in that night, and asks:
Sam: Is that tent Good Rice or Bad Rice?
Confused, you pick one at random and answer:
You: Good rice?
He smiles and says you are correct. He then asks:
Sam: What about that rock over there? Good Rice or Bad Rice?
You answer, slightly more confident this time:
You: Good rice.
Grinning sheepishly, he replies:
Sam: Nope, it's Bad Rice. Think about it! Now look, is that tree over there, is it Good Rice or Bad Rice?
Now thoroughly confused, you simply reply:
You: I don't know... Tell me!
He replies with:
Sam: Good Rice. That was easy! One more time.
He points towards the campfire and asks:
Sam: Campfire. Good Rice or Bad Rice?
You are stumped, but guess:
You: Bad rice?
He smiles and says:
Sam: Excellent job!
Your objective is to discover what classifies things as "Good Rice" or "Bad Rice." Good Luck!
