    I Have a Riddle!

    Ok so You are stuck in a 12' by 12' room (everything is white) there are 2 doors and at each of the doors there is a person (both people are identical). One of the people ALWAYS lies and the other person ALWAYS tells the truth (you do not know which is which). One of the doors lets you live if you open and the other door will kill you instantly (you also dont know which door kills or lets you live). You get one questoin you can ask either of the guys... and only 1!!!. What is the question that will let you know which door is safe to walk out?

    Riddle #2

    There are 3 people in a 12'X12' room in the middle is a old rusty metal pipe. Inside the pipe is a pingpong ball that barely fits!. Inside this room is a box of wheeties, a rope, and a coathanger. How do you get the pingpong bal out without damagin the ball or the pipe?

    1. Wouldn't you just ask the truth guy which is the right door? or is this too straight forward? am i missing something?

    2. Get the three people together and tell them all to go get you the ball. give one wheates for a balanced breakfast. see if that person gets it. If that doesnt work, threaten bodily harm with the hanger. And if that doesnt work, consider hanging yourself because you couldnt get a pingpong ball out of a rusty pipe in a strange room. I mean, i would.

    1. Ask one guy, "Which door would your friend (assuming they are friends and not twins etc and that bit doesn't factor into the equation) say leads to safety?"

    Pick the opposite of whatever either one tells you.

    remember... this is 1AM logic here... give me some slack if my wording isn't perfect

    Oh and how is the pipe situated in the room. It makes a big difference.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.
