Jim and Joe were close brothers until Jim graduated from Yale and became a renowned scientist who made millions. Not wanting to be outdone, Joe invited Jim over to a mansion that he claimed was his. He showed Jim many wonderful things inside the house one of which was a golden statue.

"This was a little gift from a friend of mine," Joe said, rapping on it with his fist, "It's made out of pure gold. See? Even my powerful fist can't make a dent in it."

"I have to say, this is all impressive," Jim admitted, "but I know this is all fake, Joe."

How did Jim know Joe was lying?

I've known that since 2nd grade, which was when a friend of mine who is clearly above average IQ explained to the class that something could be metal AND soft, pure gold. 8)

Overall, I loved the story, but I felt it was just a bit of a giveaway by stating "See? Even my powerful fist can't make a dent in it." Well done, but beware giveaways!!!

I know that pure gold is much softer than most metals. But is it really THAT soft that knocking on a large, solid statue would dent it? If I were to knock on a gold bar, would it dent that easily? I'm not saying it's wrong, because I really don't know; but I'm saying that I would be surprised if it's THAT soft.

It was pretty easy. I got it as soon as he said it was pure gold. 8)
