1. ## Riddles From O'nus - 2

 A'hoy hoy, This one is not a riddle that requires reasoning or questioning, so I figured I'd post it up as well. Here is the scenario: You come to a fork in a road; in the shape of "Y" idea. One road leads to where you want to go; let's say Heaven. While the other road leads to where you do not want to go; Hell. On each side of the road before it splits are log cabins. In each cabin resides a hermit. These hermits are brothers. The trick here is, one hermit always tells the truth and the other always lies. You may only ask one hermit, one question, in order to determine which road it is you wish to continue on to where you want to go (Heaven... or Hell, if you really want to go there ). PS. If anyone feels these threads should be in senseless banter or elsewhere, please note so. I figured it was just as good here in The Lounge. ~

2.  Simply ask one of the hermits which way to there village....if it is telling the truth, it will point in the right direction, and if it telling a lie it will point in the right direction...thats actually pretty simple ^_^. edit:that is..assuming the one that tells the truth is the one in heaven..

3.  yeah well thats that would kinda be irrelevent now wouldn't it. The whole point is to go to the place you wanna go (heaven... or hell?) If you ask for their village then you waste your question, unless their villages were in heaven...

4.  hmmmm...... awww man i cant even think of an answer... ok heres the only thing i could think of : Id ask one of them if they liked living with people. A true hermit and an honest person would say no. Assuming the honest one would live on the road to Heaven of course on a side note: Hey! can i be in the non privileged club too? pm me

5.  O'nus, by any chance are referring to the liar's paradox? I believe it was something like "I am lying right now" is a paradox because he would be lying about was he has just said, but it is the truth, so... Still, there is no reference to which hermit is which, so in this situation I would just use Global Positioning Software to determine the correct choice of action

6.  You ask "What would the other hermit say about you?" The honest hermit's answer: "He would say I was the liar." The lying hermit's answer: "He would say I was the honest one." Now it just depends on whether the honest hermit lives on the road to heaven like Dragon said.

7.  Maybe.. "what would God say about you"? Honest hermit: He would say that I had some problems, but was overall a good enough fella, blah blah blah. Liar: He would say I'm GREAT!!!! ....Shooooooooooooot I just realized what Kalmah and Dragon said. *sigh* Back to the drawing board..

8.  Those questions are kind of chancey, too much of a risk. It is possible to ask a question that will give you the definite answer. It is not a paradox.

9.  Whoa, a paradox. I saw this on Yu-Gi-Oh, just gimme a minute . . .

10.  ok now im just confused we could easily ask one of them if this was the road to heaven/hell but we still would have no way of knowing if he was lying or not.... lol @ yu-gi-oh paradox.... that card game is such a copy of magic the gathering its sad..[/quote]

11.  Originally posted by Jin Whoa, a paradox. I saw this on Yu-Gi-Oh, just gimme a minute . . . Haha, me too ^_^

12.  You gotta flip a coin or something like that and- oh wait the guys can't be together can they? Damn!

13.  That one is old heh

14.  *Deleted post* 5 minutes of thought into the extremeties of my theoretical solution, and I would have had the correct answer. I KNEW I was on the right track. Just gave up though.

15.  Yeah, that's just what I was gonna say! Really!

18.  *walks into a cabin* "Exuse me MISS(or MISTER if its a woman), is this the way to heaven?" If its the truthful one he will say: "Im not a woman!" and then he will tell you if its the road to heaven or not, if its you walk this road if its not you dont Its the lying one he will say, yes or no, but it doesnt matter, he will lie about his sex and you will do the opposite of what he says =P Its quite tricky, you can ask alot of 2 in 1 questions which really IS one question, because you are not really asking =P like "Hey of brother of the guy that lives on the other road"(hes not my brother) ^_^ probally doesnt count =P

19.  i've heard this one, only it involved an amazonian tribe and a death sentence... i don't remember the question however. how about... aww crap i had it, but i lost it.

21.  I knew this one already... yeah kaniaz is right.

22.  Hey good job, Kaniaz! Ooh these are fun.

23.  Nice Job, Kaniaz!!! After all the bull you posted you actually got it!!!

24.  how about this: go to one of the hermits and ask if he has a brother. the liar would say "no". the honest one would say "yes". if the answer was "no", go to the next hermit and ask the way to heaven, (asuming thats where u wanna go...) he will give you the right directions since he is the honest one. if the answer was "yes", go to the next hermit and ask the way to heaven, since he is the liar take the oppisite road... that was pretty simple. am i right?
