What I want to know is, how did the guard who always lies ever get the job?

Interviewer: "So, Mr Smith, you want to be a guard do you?"

Smith: "No."

I may have heard it a long time ago but I had to figure it out again.

You ask:

"If I ask the other guard which door this is what will he say"?

For the children, I'd go for 1/3 for the first, 1/2 for the second.

These little puzzles are very nice, but fictional. Does any one know of a good real one?
Here is a neat one, probably fictional.
It is a bright, fresh, summer day. A girl is walking across a field. A soldier is moving towards the field, and can see the girl. He knows that when he reaches the field, both he and the girl will die violently, yet he does not stop moving. Why?

(I'm not giving the answer immediately, just in case -- by some weird fluke -- there is anyone reading who has never heard this one before. But this is the sort of area I'm thinking about for this thread)

Won't they both answer: "Going through this door will kill you?"

It's been so long since I have heard this one, I have forgotten the answer! *looks embarrassed*

He was carrying a lot of explosives when he jumped out of the plane and now his parachute won't open.

or

He is sitting on top of a cruise missile aimed for the field.

or

Something else.....

Perhaps he didn't really want the job, but was forced to go to the interview for fear of losing his benefits.

Interviewer: "And do you have any guarding experience?"
Smith: "Oh yes, lots!"
