Monday Riddle #3


A young man walks through the forest. 
He came to a bridge.
In front of the bridge is a large man carrying an axe.

The large man says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you must tell me a statement. If I think the statement is true, you will be strangled to death. If I say the statement is false, your head will be chopped off."

A few minutes later, the young man walked over the bridge, while the larger man stood pondering.

What was the statement the young man had given?

Solution to Monday Riddle #2:

Fill the 3-cup container with milk and then pour all three cups of milk into the 5-cup container. Fill the 3-cup container with milk again and then use it to fill the 5-cup container the rest of the way. The remainder left in the 3 cup container will equal one cup.
