* '''Zig Zagged''': Miner Bob finds a cave full of polished gems sticking out of the walls. There, he meets Alice, a geologist, who tells him that the gems found in this cave are fake, because it's geologically impossible to find already cut and polished gems in nature. Once Bob leaves the cave, we find out that Alice is also a miner. She was pretending to be a geologist in order to trick Bob so she could have the entire mine just for herself. Alice proceeds to collect all the gems in the mine and then goes off to sell them, but then she trips and the gems she was carrying all fall on the floor, where they break upon impact. Turns out that the already cut and polished gems were fake after all.
