Buridan's Ass refers to an old philosophical puzzle by Jean Buridan, a French philosopher in the 14th century who used the idea of a mule situated equidistantly between two bales of hay as a way of examining free will. Buridan wondered if a mule would starve if it couldn't decide between two equivalent choices, since both choices were the same and one had no more appeal than the other. If the mule did choose one of them, the question would be what factor lead to the mule's choosing, and was that actually an exercise of free will. See more
When Lester escapes the hospital, he steals Creech's boots and jacket to do so, and he's able to steal Creech's vehicle because the keys are in the jacket. After a stop at his own house, he's then shown entering his brother's garage. Lester would need his house key and his brother's garage door opener to do these things, but he wouldn't have either with him when he left the hospital wearing only a gown and a stranger's jacket, and under police guard to boot. And while it's possible he entered his home using the spare key under the mat, it's implausible that he similarly found and used a spare garage door opener to enter his brother's garage. And if he had, he would certainly need to return the opener before heading back to the hospital, or run the risk of others discovering that he had access to the garage. All of that running around seems unlikely considering that he needed to get back to the hospital quickly before his absence was noticed. See more
