 ```If "there's nothing two sticks of Twix can't fix," then what can one stick of twix fix? Please provide a good argument for your answer and supportive reasoning. I expect that some formal logic might be involved to postulate and prove the answer.```

 ```Hello djjensen47-ga One stick of Twix could provide the alternative for a snack if you?re counting calories. While the fat content is a bit high, it?s recommended that snacks are under 200 calories. With a caramel Twix bar, both sticks are 280 calories, however, 1 stick, being 140 calories could fix the need for a snack/chocolate/sweets craving if you?re watching calories. It?s not the healthiest snack, but it is under the recommended calories and you could get two snacks a day out of one 60-cent candy bar. I also agree with Tutzdad?s comments below. ?What constitutes a light snack? Basically, your snacks should contain no more than 200 calories?? http://www.askmen.com/sports/foodcourt_60/89_eating_well.html (about snacks) http://www.trackyourdiet.com/nutritional-information/item54860.aspx (How many calories in a Twix Bar) Google Searches: twix nutritional information ://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=twix+nutritional+information&spell=1 how many calories is a healthy snack ://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=how%20many%20calories%20is%20a%20healthy%20snack&btnG=Google+Search If this answer requires further explanation, please request clarification before rating it, and I'll be happy to look into this further.

However, I was looking more along the lines of an answer to a logic game. If you have two things, you can fix (or repair or solve) anything. What can you fix if you only have one of those two things? I think the answer is that you just don't know. You may or may not be able to fix anything.``` Clarification of Answer by nenna-ga on 27 Sep 2005 19:56 PDT ```I would have to say you could be right. However, you can also have a good snack while you're not fixing anything :) Nenna-GA```

 ```Two negatives make a positive. Therefore, the statement "there's nothing two sticks of Twix can't fix" implies that two sticks of Twix can fix everything. Therefore, one stick should fix half of everything. (A half-assed solution to the world's problems, I suppose.)```

 ```When a rural bumpkin tried to mend some torn photographs by using a melted Twix bar, he did not succeed. The next day, the local newspaper published an image of the farmer and his ruined snapshots, with this headline: Twix Stix Fix Hick's Pix? Nix.```

 ```re: Rambler-ga's comment: Everything is infinite, half of everything is also infinite (DJensen wanted some formal logic), so a second Twix stick would be superfluous. I would say that the implication is that two sticks of Twix can fix ANYthing. Therefore, one stick can only half fix anything or fix only half of anything, which isn't completely fixing anything at all.```
