Man, I like those puzzles.
Puzzle #1: Property Values
Would have immediately this question: Why should you believe your realtor?
Many people would like to live next to such a famous sculptor.

I have a pigsfarm in the neighbourhood. I hate the smell en now my property
is worth less. If I call the city to complain, does that mean I do not like
a cutlet?

Puzzle #2: Paul Pique Famous Artist
The old end nerver ending story.
I would answer: ART does not exist. There is no such a thing as ART. Some
people do call some objects ART. In their club of believers it is accepted
as ART. They are willing to pay a huge amount of money for them. Paul Pique
is just a clever man. Some people will call him an artist. So he will be an
artist.

Give me any definition of ART
-and I will show you an object that follows this definition which you would
not call ART.
-and I will show you an object that does not follow this definition and is
however called ART.
It is all a question of agreements. Shall we call it ART? It is ART (The
only problem then is WHO ARE WE?).
If we are THE ART PEOPLE, it is ART.
THEY (art people) can bring an object in the ARTWORLD.
If we are just we, it will probably never become ART.
