in a far away land, it was known that if you drank poison, the only way to save yourself is to drink a stronger poison, which neutralizes the weaker poison. the king called a logician an a chemist to make the strongest poison for him. the logician went straight to work, but the chemist knew that he had no chance, for the logician was wiser than him, so instead he made up a plan to survive and make sure the logician dies. on the last day the logician suddenly realized that the chemist would know he had no chance, so he must have a plan. after a little thought the logician realized what was the chemist's plan must be, and he conducted a counter plan , to make sure he survives and the chemist die. when the time came, the king summoned both of them. they drank the poison as planned, the chemist died, the logician survived and the king got what he wanted.
