This method works without you ever knowing which guard tells the truth and which one lies.

Think about it. You don't know which is which, but they know each other. You're not asking them which door holds the prize, but which door will the other guard says holds the prize. If you ask the truthful guard which dooe will the other guard say is the prize door, the truthful guard will tell you the truth about the other guard's lie. Vice versa the lying guard will lie about the other guard's truth. Either way you get the same answer.

Sleep on it, okay.
Thanks River....

What if you happened to speak to the truth guard.

Always an "if" involved. smh
Houserunner explained it perfectly. I didn't get it at first but close your eyes and picture doing asking what he said to ask. Ask both guards...even if you ask only one, the answer would still be the same.

I and river and houserunner all explained what happens.....if you happen to speak to either guard....since you dont know which one you are speaking to.

I correctly used if because its a chance scenerio. Again..
You dont know which one you are speaking too.

If you dont understand the above.....Im sorry.

That's how I finally visualize and got it. Houserunner certainly has patience, I admire that about him. Others here should practice it. For patience is a virtue!

OK, some people visualize better. So I will offer this to you. If you have 2 doors within your vicinity that is relatively close view them, then picture a guard in front of each, act like you are asking the question to each of them and then figure out what door is being pointed to, then you know the opposite door is what you should pick. I hope I am being as clear as possible. Does that help?
This is the best way to explain it.

If it's a chance scenario, then you're just as apt to get the lying guard as the truthful guard. End result - you're just as apt to be eaten alive as to become rich beyond your wildest dreams.

In MY scenario, you know EXACTLY who you're talking to, thus the chances of you being eaten are ZERO.

You, River and Horserunner don't "understand." I do. Perfectly. And my scenario is failproof, not left to "chance."


Btw, under the "chance" scenario, with 3 of you taking a "chance," one of you (maybe 2!) is sure to be eaten. My condolences. :wave:

We should all take this as a lesson in life. Read Matthew 5:5-13, good luck in life...over and out.

Listen, that Lion would have torn me up by now cause i know i would've asked the guard who ALWAYS tells the truth and swore he was lying......:em3400:
Oh please, Info-moetry! As fast as you are on your feet (and obviously in your tastes :toast:), soon as you saw that big head with its tossling mane look up from what's left of Clueless Angela, Off-target River, and Can't see the forest for the trees Horserunner's still twitching leg dangling out of its bloody muzzle.... your "uh oh!" butt would prolly grab by the arm and sling workingwhiteman straight at him and yell: "Doncha wont some white meat with that goulash?"

Then with his too-late screams of "Help me, Kadijah!" ringing in your ears, book right back out that door! :running:

And if that ain't the truth, I don't know what is. :news:

Hi, Queenie. Love your posts. Even though I don't you, you must be some kind of remarkable and lovely person. Lets keep in touch.
It's okay to admire otherz, but first, love self. ELEVATE your self-image by having a healthy love & respect for yourself. ✍
1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
