A simple solution to the hardest logic puzzle ever

Analysis 68 (2):105-112 (2008)
Abstract
We present the simplest solution ever to 'the hardest logic puzzle ever'. We then modify the puzzle to make it even harder and give a simple solution to the modified puzzle. The final sections investigate exploding god-heads and a two-question solution to the original puzzle.
