One day a vistor to the island stops three inhabitants of the island to ask for directions to a well known museum. "All three of us are liars," warns the first inhabitant, "not so, only two of us are liars," says the second. "Not so," says the third, "The other two guys are lying."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
