now he knew his grandma was also an avid fan of Labyrinth (1986, dir. Jim Henson) and theres that scene where sarah gets told one leads to the castle one leads to certain death. i wasn't following the story and thought this was about the singing dude and when i realised it was about the elephant i started thinking abt elephant david bowie
he asks any of the mice "if i asked the other mouse where the feast was where would they point" and picks the opposite door.
let there be two guards - liar and truthteller. and two doors, feast (F) and ground (G). i used they on both but i got into a few pronoun snafuses so the liar is he/him and truthteller is she
the liar knows the F door. if you asked him to point to F, he'd point to G because he lies
the truthteller knows the F door as well. if you asked her to point to F she will point to F because she tells the truth.
the liar knows which door is F and that the truthteller is honest, meaning the truthteller would say F is correct if you asked her. if you asked the liar what the truthteller would say he will answer G which is not what the truthteller would say and a lie.
the truthteller knows which door is F and that the liar tells lies, meaning the liar would say G is correct if you asked him. if you asked the truthteller what the liar would say she will answer G which is what the liar would say and the truth
both guards respond with G which is the wrong door. therefore the elephant should take the opposite door, F. whether the guard lies or tells the truth is irrelevant (conversely, if the doors were swapped so would the answers. either way the elephant takes the opposite door)
man you're really shaping up. giving my ass math logic problems i have to explain. this was meant to be a paragraph long joke about elephant david bowie. a pox on you and your family croix
