There are two kinds of people on a mysterious island. There are so-called Honestants who speak always the truth, and the others are Swindlecants who always lie.
Three fellows (A, B and C) are having a quarrel at the market. A gringo goes by and asks the A fellow: "Are you an Honestant or a Swindlecant?" The answer is incomprehensible so the gringo gives another quite logical question to B: "What did A say?" B answers: "A said that he is a Swindlecant." And to that says the fellow C: "Do not believe B, he is lying!"

Who is B and C?

B is a Swindlecant and C is the Honestant; if A was really a Swindlecant, he would lie and say that he isn't, because both Swindlecants and Honestants will say that they are Honestants, except one is lying and the other one is not. C is the Honestant because C knows that B is lying (A did not admit that he was a Swindlecant), and C is telling the truth.

You are on an island in the middle of a lake.

The lake is in a remote part of the country and therefore there has never been a bridge connecting the island to the mainland.

Every day a truck gives rides around the island.

Puzzled as to how the truck had gotten onto the island, you ask around and find out that the truck was not transported to the island by boat or by air.

Nor was it built on the island.

Explain how the truck got there?

A lift is on the ground floor. There are 4 people in the lift including me. When the lift reaches first floor, 1 person gets out 3 people get in. The lift goes up to the second floor, 2 people get out 6 people get in. It then goes up to the next floor up, no-one gets out but 12 people get in. Halfway up to the next floor up the lift cable snaps, it crashes to the floor. Everyone dies in the lift.
How did I survive?
