    I have an indefinite number of regular dodecahedra, indistinguishable in appearance from each other. I have pots of red and blue paint. If each face of each dodecahedra is to be painted red or blue, how many dodecahedra which are distinguishable from each other shall I be able to produce?

    equally valid these days
