    I've got a riddle:

    I have leaves that don't grow,
    And a spine but can't walk.
    What am I?

    I don't think it's too hard but I did just make it up.

    Are you a man?
    I thought of something like that but that would only tell you which one lies and which one tells the truth. Not which way to go.

    new riddle:
    You are walking down a road and come to a fork in the path one of which leads to wherever it is you're trying to go, the other to certain death. Each way is guarded by a man, one of whom can only ever tell the truth and the other can only tell lies. You have one question to find out which way to go and you don't know which man is the liar/tells the truth. You can't go backwards either. What is the question?
    If you've heard it before - don't say anything!!! genuine guesses only please
    Which path will I survive by following? You take whichever they both say then

    That won't work, the liar will point you wrong way and the (truther?) will send you the other - you still don't know which way is which!

    I think you have to ask the guy is the other guy is lying. Trying to think in my head exactly how it works.

    You ask either one of them, "If I were to ask the other one, which path I should go down, which one would he say?"

    Then you follow the path that they said that the other one would say.

    almost! you have to do the opposite of what they say the liar will lie and say the other will send you the wrong way. The one telling the truth will truthfully tell you that the other one will send you the wrong way. This way they both tell you the wrong way and you have to do the opposite!

    They were being sarcastic to begin with, now they are making fun of your inability to detect that.

    A horseman was riding home, on his way he fell off into a ditch and was knocked out. When he woke up his horse was no where to be seen, he went home and found his horse safely in it's stable, all it's tack was cleaned and put away. He lived alone and no one knew he was out riding. what happened?
