Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of
three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats.
You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind
the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then
says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage

Yeah I've seen this puzzler before, your odds are better if you switch, whether it's three doors or a million.

Why did he open door #3 when I specifically requested door #1? ðŸ˜

Indeed. I found it more fun than its predecessor, the box paradox.

I said the same to the warden but he responded that I was still a danger to society.

Go figure.

All three doors are a win. Before your choice you had nothing.

I can see you spending your day singing the LEGO movie theme "Everything is Awesome!"

Oh, wait, no, I can't.
