Four people are being held hostage. They are standing as follows:

^ | _ ^ _
O | O O O

That's a wall in between them, so the guy on the left can't see the other guys, and vice versa. The things on top are hats. They are all facing towards the wall, and can't turn around and look behind them. They can't tell what kind of hat they're wearing, and they can only see the hats of the people in front of them. So for example, the guy on the far right can see that there are two people in front of him, one wearing a flat hat and one wearing a pointy. The middle guy can only see the guy in front of him wearing a flat hat. THey can't speak either.

The people holding them hostage agree to let them go if one can figure out which kind of hat they're wearing, if they're wrong, they're all shot, so it's inadviseable to guess. They're also told that there are two flat hats, and two pointy hats. Who figures out what kind of hat they're wearing? How?

You've died and gone to somewhere in the sky, suddenly two guys appear standing next to two doors. One of them is a compulsive liar, he will lie to you, always, without hesitation. The other (conveniently named fishpaste) always tells the truth. They're standing next to these doors, one of which is the door to heaven, the other is the closet escalator to HELL. These people tell you that you may ask them one question, in order to determine which door is which, what do you ask them?

They're both going to say "me," which doesn't really help since you don't know which one is lying. Also, if that did somehow help you to identify the liar, you've wasted your question and don't know which door it is.

"are the answers to 'Are you fishpaste?' and 'this is the door to heaven?' (pointing at a door) both yes?"

yes: it is the door to heaven
no: it is the door to hell

(you get the same result from both of them)

jeez i already mentioned the answer.........

u say what would the other guy say if i were to ask which door takes them to Heaven? Since one would tell the truth and would tell the lie? u should take the door they dont mention (or alternatively, ask them which takes them to Hell, and take that door.

Sort of but it's really two questions, you've got the basic idea though. The person who posted right after me got the most simple answer/question.
