"So the only fair way to decide who pays for breakfast is to go odd or even on the first number of the next keno game."

It made perfect sense to me. I love my friends.

Credit card roulette isn't fair?

CCR isn't interesting heads-up.

So we are left to conclude that the set of interesting
things encompasses the set of fair things.

I suspect you mean the other way around.

I would say neither encompasses the other, but there's overlap.

No, Patti claimed that 'interesting' is a necessary condition
for 'being fair', because otherwise the fact that CCR is not
interesting is completely irrelevant to whether it is fair or
not. The original quote claimed that there was only one
fair way to resolve the issue, not that there was only one
interesting way to resolve the issue.

It is true that the set of fair things and the set of interesting
things are neither disjoint nor does one encompass the other,
except, of course, in the awesomeness that is Patti's Brain.

Kevan, the owner of the quote, just declared you annoyingly smart.

What would we ever do without first-order logic
and Venn diagrams.

Isn't that like a "Zen Diagram"?

I think Zen diagrams have to drawn on Mobius strips.

Is this low number in the next keno game, or the first number drawn? (The former is unfair and a nice angle.)

First number. You think we're amateurs? :)

What if you're not paying attention? Is that like sleeping on your props?
