Ask either, "If I ask him (point to the other) if his button will blow me up, what would he answer?" If he answers, "No" then he's next to the good button.
The way I answer it is to ask either one, "if you were the other person, which button would you choose?", then take the opposite one.
Ahh crap. Now my head is really spinning!
If the person you ask is the liar then he'll show you the explosion button. If the person you ask tells the truth then he'll also show you the explosion button.

That's news to me, but not surprising. Do they also have a button for switching between them?
Oops, that's a complete lie. I meant to say TVs. Been so long since I've bought a monitor.. I use laptop at work and at home I used to have two TVs, one of which had chomecast, other had three HDMIs which were chromecast, xbox, computer... I never watch live TV cos you just pay money to watch adverts. But I guess many monitors do have more than one hdmi now too? Switching between HDMIs was through remote or menu system on the tv.

windows is better IF...you enjoy 2 to 3 hour updates/installs with multiple reboots, you enjoy twice a year "upgrades" that also take hours only to see a screen at the end of those hours telling you it failed and will now take about an hour to revert it back to where you began, you enjoy cumulative updates that make sure you didnt miss anything and bloats your system, if you enjoy being told that "you already have the best browser installed" (edge) when trying to install firefox or chromium or chrome, if you like not having your privacy and like having M$ play hoover vacuum cleaner on all the info they can suck up, and the side "benefit" is your CPU and hardrive are working in overdrive, heating up the system ensuring a lesser lifespan for these critical components, if you enjoy the fact that you no longer own your system, THEY do, if you like hunting for additional settings to customise things in 3 or 4 different places scattered all over the system, if you like all of the above mentioned to be able to bork your system and turn your computer into a brick doorstop and if you like being told that M$ advertising on your computer is a "feature" that will enhance your user experience...if thats the case, then of course windows is better...bwahahahahah...DAMIEN

Judging by the avatar alone, I'd err on the side of caution! :wink:
