It's "If you were the other guard, which door would you tell me leads to life?" Let's say that door A leads to life. If you ask the guy that always tells the truth, then he'll say that it's door B because that's what the other guard would say. If you ask the guy that always lies, he'd say door B, because the other guy would say door A, but he has to lie. So you go through the opposite door that they tell you.*Originally posted by Starryknight14***whats the answer then? how?** - 03 Jul '05 18:37
