A hiker comes to a fork in the road and doesn't know which way to go to reach his destination. There are two men at the fork, one of whom always tells the truth while the other always lies. The hiker doesn't know which is which, though. He may ask one of the men only one question to find his way. Which man does he ask, and what is the question?

Here's something for everyone to think about on a not so nice saturday!

You ask either of them:
"If I were to ask him (pointing to the other fellow) which is the way to "my destination", which way would he point?"
...and then take the OTHER direction!

What if it was a SPORK in the road?

That's the answer but the scenario wasn't fully developed: the fork in the road is supposed to be in the Sahara desert and there are two Foreign Legion guards at the fork. One fork leads off into the uncharted sands where death is certain whereas the other fork leads to an oasis with a well where there is a bottle full of water and a pump. A sign says that you should pour the entire bottle into the well to prime the pump ...

Sorry, this has all been dealt with in another thread: use the search function

Well...I'd pick up the fork out of the ground, turn around, and walk back the way I came, ignoring the two men standing in the trail...

What does one do when they come to chopsticks in the road?

I'm sorry, what was the original question again?
