You come to a fork in the road. One branch leads to the City of Truth, and the other leads to the City of Deceit. You can ask the person stationed at the fork in the road one simple question to help you determine the correct path to the City of Truth. If the person is from the City of Truth, he will answer your question honestly; if he is from the City of Deceit, he will answer your question dishonestly. What question should you ask?

“Did you know they’re serving free beer in the City of Truth?”

The truth‑teller will say, “No!” and run to get a beer. The liar will say, “Yes!” and run to get a beer. Either way, follow him.

And that is true wisdom.
