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

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?

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

I always liked this riddle:

You have a fox, a chicken and a bag of seed. You need to get all three across a river but the boat will only carry you and one other thing. The fox will eat the chicken and the chicken will eat the seed. How do you get them all across intact and uneaten?

Take the chicken across first. Come back and get the fox and take it across. On your return take the chicken with you. Take the seed across and leave it with the fox. Go back over and get the chicken

The Fat Gestapo evicted every porker at the 8th Floor and forced them up the stairs with cattle-prods?

Or perhaps the lift had 8 floors...
