This should be applied to politicians. Then again, they would all give the same answer.

The three gods have no identities assinged to them in the definition of the problem so whatever alogorythm is used to solve the problem would depend on which gods was asked first. Therefore the identity of each god is assigned by the interviewer.

The solution is universal so it doesn't matter what order the gods are in.

I have one question about this:

Can I, for example, refer to the second or third God I will ask a question in my first question? E.g. "Is the third God I will ask a question a liar?"

Yes.


I.e., is the order of asking the Gods known upfront, also by the Gods?

The ordering of the gods shouldn't matter.

It's considered a brain teaser because after the $1.00 refund, each man has paid $9.00 for the room (9 x 3 = 27) and the bellboy has $2.00 thus $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Where did the remaining $1.00 go?


each man paid 10.00....when they should have paid 8.33, so the men were owed back 1.66 each....but the bellboy got only (5) 1.00 bills back, no change, so the bell boy SHOULD have given 1.66 back to each man, but he didn't, since he had no change...so, he gave back to each man 1.00 and kept the 66 cents from each of the 3 men, that adds up to (2) 1.00 bills
