That is no riddle and the answer about Justin Bieber, is excellent. Now, here is a riddle that I have never heard anyone get, except me. No clues or tips, just figure it out.

A man is travelling in a country where there are two tribes. One always lies and the other always tells the truth. He comes to a fork in the road but there is no sign and a man is sitting by the side of the road. One road goes to Pigotville, your destination, and the other does not. You don't know which tribe the man is from. What one question can you ask the man, such that the answer ensures that you will take the road to Pigotville? My email and YouTube address are below.

He asks one of the tribes this question "If i asked the other tribe if this was the correct road would they say Yes?" If the tribe says Yes, then its the other road, if the tribe says No then its the correct road.

"What would you say if you were from the other tribe?" and take the other path.

I have heard this before, I am trying to remember the answer. It has to do with the wife and sister-in-law, I think.

I will ask him if he is a woman. Once, he says it, I know if he is lieing or not, then I ask him the direction again.

it's a riddle, I am just struggling to remember the answer. Someone was very close with the answer about the wife not being there, but I think there was a little more to the answer.

I suppose that would be fine and dandy if you were able to ask two questions

Touche sir, touche.

I do admit I missed the one question rule.

My bad.

I will then adjust my answer.

I will ask the man, to take me to his tribe, and hope for the best!

"Which two roads do not lead to Pigotville"?

The liar will be stumped as there cannot be two false answers. One will have to be true.

The honest tribesman will point to the road you came from and the road that won't lead to Pigotville.

Star for you.

How did they die?

Aeroplane crashed into mountain - the three were strapped in.

A hangman guards the bridge between town A and town B. In order to get across you must answer his one question truthfully.

"Where are you going"?

If you lie he hangs you.

If you tell the truth he allows you to proceed.

What is the one answer to his question where he could neither hang you nor allow you to proceed?
