If the numbers are counted by digits rather than actual numbers, then an alternate solution could be: There are 11 1's 2 2's 1 3's 1 4's 1 5's 1 6's 1 7's 1 8's 1 9's and 1 0's in this sentence. The 11 would count as two 1's and the 2 2's would make itself true. Comments? Suggestions? Death threats??
