Icons are not my thing, one is as good as another.

One of those icons will blow up your machine. The other will win you the MegaBillions lottery.

You are in a room with two mysticals. One will always tell the truth, the other will always lie.
They both know which icon will explode.
You are allowed to ask one single question of the mysticals without knowing who is who.
What would be your question?
hint: only one question will save you arse

I would ask one of the mystics, "If you were the other mystic, which icon would you choose?"

Then I'd click the other icon.

This is an old riddle.
A room with two doors, one leads to death, the other to riches.
No exit allowed.

Pehaps there is a question you have not considered, can you do it without google

Ask one which door to chose for riches. Then ask the other if the first is lying or telling the truth. If the second says "lying" then choose the other door. If he says "truth", then that's the door.

That's never going to happen. The second one will always say the first one is lying. Consider this: for the answer to be 'the other one is telling the truth' they need to both be telling the truth, OR both be lying... and that doesn't happen.

Plus, you don't get two questions.

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.
When the system fails, reinstall and use the exact same username and all your 'stuff' comes back to you.
