New riddle: There are three boxes with two compartments each. One box has a silver bar in both compartments, another one has a gold bar in both compartments,  and the last one has a silver bar in one compartment and a gold bar in the other compartment. If you open up one compartment to reveal a gold bar than what is the probabilty of there being a gold bar in the other compartment?
Hint: this riddle is a famous mathematical paradox so the answer is not what you would expect it to be.

66%. That's either Monty Hall or Bertrand's Box, not sure which.

Oh gawd I have heard of the Monty hall thingy. If it was a game show scenario then I would know it was the Monty Hall thingy. I'd say 33%

The answer is actually 2/3 which is 66.66...%, but I will accept 66%. The paradox is Bertrand's Box. Here is the Monty Hall paradox.
You're a contest on a gameshow with three doors. Two doors have a goat behind them and one has a car behind it. You point to one door and than the host opens another door to reveal a goat. To maximize your chances of winning the car should you switch doors or stick with the door you already selected?

Switch, The answer is more obvious when you add several more doors. Imagine the same problem except with 50 doors. You select one door and the host reveals goats behind 48 other doors. Now would you expect you picked the car the first time or one of the goats?

Hmm...

DISCLAIMER: This joke is not meant to offend any Polacks.

An American, a Spaniard, and a Polack were  captured by a local native tribe while hunting. The chief ties them up, and says they can have one item to try to escape. But if they are caught, they will be skinned and turned into a canoe. The American asks for a gun, so the chief gives it to him and unties him. The American runs away, shooting all the natives he sees, until he runs out of ammo. He is captured and turned into a canoe. The Spaniard asks for a horse. The chief gives him a horse and unties him. He rides until the natives surround him, and turn him into a canoe. The Polack asks for a fork. The chief says, "Why do you want a fork?" The Polack replies, "You said I could have anything, so I want a fork." So the chief gives him a fork and unties him. He starts stabbing himself repeatedly with the fork, yelling "LET'S SEE YOU MAKE A CANOE OUT OF ME NOW!"

I know the complete riddle on your post:

There was someone named Stephen Hillenburg. He has a show called SpongeBob SquarePants. Unfortunately Stephen left himself and got replaced by someone called Paul Tibbitt. Now the show is ruined.

The point here is to get everyone gold here and make sure I become better than all of you in Gamerias. I had no Gameria files at all, so I'm beginning every single game from the start to prove that I'll be better than all of you in everything that exists in this world. I already am, but I want to prove it in a more realistic, proof, evident, truthful and legitimate manner.

Bold means that the game is completed.
