  • Did He Tell The Truth?

    Johnny Smith visited an island. There were 2 tribes living on this island. The east tribal people always tell a lie. The west tribal people always tell the truth.

    Johnny saw a guy passing him. He asked the tour guide to ask that guy where he lives. The tour guide asked the guy and came back with the answer: he lives over west. Did the tour guide tell the truth or tell a lie?

    You know, if this was last year I would have been able to give you this answer, but I completely forget how to figure it out, and I am going to say... No.

      Truth because the tour guide just told Johnny what he was told?

        We don't know which side the tour guide was from either.

              The truth becuase if he was from the west he would answer "I'm from the West"
              and if he was from the East he would answer "I'm from the West"

              So yes, he told the truth.

                      so how could you tell who really lives in the east or west.
                      if everyone says the west who really lives their.

                        Okay, either way, the 1st person will say "I live in the West".

                        Thus, the tour guide must be from the West, since he said the exact same thing to Johnny (if he lived in the East, the tour guide would have said "he lives in the east").

                        The problem never was to figure out where the 1st person is from

                          He lied. Here's why.

                          If he lived east, he told a lie and said he lived west.

                          If he lived west, he'd tell the truth and said he lived west.

                          So he does indeed live west, probably 33 miles south of Oakland. Now, how do we tell if he lied or not?

                          Get Jack Bauer!

                          I did nothing to prove he lied. Which way was the sun setting?
