This question reminds me somehow of the time in classic Star Trek when Kirk destroys a villainous supercomputer with a simple paradox (the old 'I am lying' line, which in turn traces back to a classical paradox about the Cretan who says: 'All Cretans are liars'). Tom Kyte found this call on random answers of interest and there is already a wide variety of answers accumulating in the comment area: I Really Liked This .
