Does anyone know the solution to the following riddle it's driving me slightly mad!


There are two identical doors. One is the door to heaven the other the door to hell.

Two men stand before the doors. One of the men always tells the truth and the other one always lies.

You can only ask them one question. How do you know which door to take?


Does anyone know the solution? I remember the same puzzle is used in the Jim Henson film Labyrinth if that helps.

Pick a door at random - say the left door. Pick a bloke at random - say the left bloke. Ask the left bloke "if I asked the other bloke if this is the door to heaven, would he say yes". If he answers no then the left door is the door to heaven, if he answers yes then the right door is the door to heaven.
