Besides the Monty Hall paradox, what are some other counterintuitive math problems that require a bit of a mind warp?

My partner is doing a stats class in which the Monty Hall paradox was brought up. After a bit of time educating ourselves on the internet as to why you should always switch doors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Hall_problem) we need more! What are some other strange math/probability questions that go against all gut instinct?
