Over the weekend Jon Ronson, Rebecca Watson and I announced our Paranormal Road Trip. It will happen towards the end of October and involve us driving from Buffalo to Nashville investigating odd stuff. We are on the look-out for weird things to examine and visit, so please submit your ideas via the project website.
On Friday I set this puzzle……
Yesterday I met a man called Bill. Bill said ‘I always lie’. Was Bill lying or telling the truth?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
Bill is lying. His statement cannot be true because it would be self-contradictory. It must be the case that Bill sometimes lies and sometimes tells the truth.
Did you solve it? Any other answers?
I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
