Monks with Dots

Just posted this over at the Naked Communications blog and thought it would be fun to share here as well. It's a bit of a riddle I heard over Christmas vacation: "One or more monks live in a monestary. One day God comes down and says to the monks that he is going to place dots on one or more of their heads. If they are sure they have a dot on their head, when they retire to their room that evening they must kill themselves. The catch: They may not speak to each other and they may not look in a mirror. How many days does it take for all the monks with dots to kill themselves?" Answer to come later, leave your guesses at HouseOfNaked.com. Update (1/7/08): Greg is the winner with his lengthy and correct response.
