You are walking down a path and come to a fork in the road. You know that one path leads to a painful death,
while down the other path lies a great reward. Unfortunately, you don't know which path is which. Fortunately,
however, standing at the fork is a local villager that knows which path is which. However, there are two local
villages, and the people of both villages are virtually identical. The only difference is that the members
of one village can only tell the truth, and the members of the other village can only lie. Knowing this,
you are allowed only one yes/no question to determine the correct path.

with the corn. How does he get all safely over the stream?
A man is sitting in a pub feeling rather poor. He sees the man next to him pull a wad of £50 notes out of his wallet.
He turns to the rich man and says to him,
"I have an amazing talent: I know almost every song that has ever existed."
The rich man laughs.
The poor man says, "I am willing to bet you all the money you have in your wallet that I can sing a genuine song with a lady's name of your choice in it."
The rich man laughs again and says, "Ok how about my daughters name, Joanna Armstrong-Miller."
The rich man goes home poor. The poor man goes home rich.
What song did he sing?
