A man has been sentenced to death, but the Judge is in a playful mood - why is it in these puzzles the Judge is always in a playful mood?
He says to the man you must give me one statement. If it is true you will be hanged; if it is false you will shot.
However, after the man's statement the man walked free.
What did he say?
There are actually two statements the man could use: "I will be killed be being shot" or "I will not be hanged".
If the either statement is true the man would have to be hanged, in which case it would be false and so on.
