Sorry, Dano, heard that one before and wasn't impressed with the answer.

Much better would be this vid about "4 Psychology Myths You Probably Thought Were True":

the part of the question where the fox will eat the corn is missing to make your answer the minimal solution. FYI

otherwise you could bring the fox across, then the corn, and then the chicken, 'cause the fox wouldn't eat the corn.

2, If you bring the fox across first, the chicken eats the corn. The premise in this scenario is that we're talking about a fox that doesn't eat corn.

I was going to point out that this problem is usually phrased as wolf/goat/cabbage, but wikipedia seems to think that it's fox/goose/bag-of-beans(?!) so really who can say.

Ah, just watch the British Office. They solved it already.

I was really trying to get a llama in there, but I have no idea if llamas eat corn. Or if the fox would attack the llama. Then I looked online and saw 37 posts about the llamas and decided to stay with the original fox/chicken sides of the equation.

The llama would have eaten the blue-gold-white-and-black dress.

1. Take the chicken across
2. Return alone
3. Take the corn across
4. Leave. You're a farmer - you have no use for a fox

@8 TRUE THAT.

Is Rolfing where just hose you down with extremely high-pressure water?

What about-- Just a sack of hot Rolfing?

The fox would also eat his narrowing chasm of click-bait journalism trash. Double star**

Can someone remind me of the most recent television show or movie to feature this riddle? I thought it was The Imitation Game, but it seems not to be in the online script.
