i am walking in a jungle, when i come across a fork in the trail on which i travel. in the middle of the fork, there is a native.i know that there are two tribes of this jungle, and it is indistinguishable from which tribe this man comes. one of the tribes is down one road, and all belonging to it are cannibals who will certainly eat me, while down the other road is a tribe of nice people, and will serve me a nice meal. the cannibals always lie, while the other tribe always tells the truth. i also know that while speaking to them, both tribes will only allow you one question. if you excede that limit, they will kill you. what question shall i ask in order to live?
