    A dead man is found in a locked room, hanging from the ceiling 4 ft. above the floor. The room is completely empty, except for a puddle of water below him. How did he die?

    stood on a block of ice, and waited for it to melt.

    You approach two talking doors. One door leads to the City of Truth, while the other door leads to the City of Liars. You do not know which door is which. You are able to ask only one question to determine which door is which. The door that leads to the City of Liars always speaks lies, while the door that leads to the City of Truth always speaks the truth. You want to go to the City of Truth. What question do you ask to determine which door leads to the City of Truth

    A man worked on the 17th floor of an office block. Every time he came into work he would go to the 8th floor in the lift and walk the rest. Why?

    You ask one what the other one would say, and take the other door.

    Labyrinth film...the answer is in that - but however many times I watch that film the answer still confuses me.

    Something like you ask one door if you ask the other whether the first door would tell you truth, if the first door says the other...ok no, I still can't get that one right. You got me on that one!

    He was too short to reach the button for the 17th floor?

    Answer(1): You ask a a door - "If I were to ask the other door which door leads to the city of truth, what would he say". And then you pick the opposite door of what he tells you.
    Answer(2): Ask the door - "If I asked you which door leads to the city of truth before, which door would you have told me?" (negative and negative = positive, positive and positive = positive). and you choose the door that it directs you to.
