You're fast, Bob! I was just typing it out when I saw your answer. Yes - its three and either clockwise or counterclockwise. I had to doodle with it on paper, though.

The spacing gets messed up with the forum but this is the idea...

4 3 2 1
7 6 5
9 8
10

becomes

1
3 2
7 6 5
4 9 8 10

Headed out for an hour or so. Will reveal my solution to land of liars and truth tellers when I return if anyone would like to take one last shot at it. F.R.O.G. You should post your solution also.JT

Oh my gosh...where is that post from the guy who said this makes his head hurt!?! Oh yeah I think they went and joined the chat about what homemade brew we will be sampling at Goshen! I am so with that guy! I do love how you all can even get these things! Funny how people just love riddles!

If I were to ash, what would be your answer to "Which trail leads to safety?" Then just go in the direction you are told.

My take on the same problem, which I e-mailed a couple of days ago, was:

"If you were the opposite of what you are, a liar or a truth teller, which trail would you tell me to take?" I would then take the other trail.

A claustrophobic Englishman lived in a tenth floor flat in London. Each morning he would rise and ride the elevator down to work. Other residents always let him ride by himself because if anyone else entered the elevator he would exit because of his claustrophobia. After the workday when he returned he would ride the elevator to the seventh floor and walk the last three floors to his flat. What would explain this unusual behavior?

Is he too short to reach the tenth floor button?
