This question already has an answer here:

You are a contestant on the most dangerous gameshow in the world (lucky you!).

The host presents you with three doors. You're told that:

  1. Behind the first door, there is deadly poisonous gas.
  2. Behind the second door, there are trained assassins with knives.
  3. Behind the third door, there are lions which have not eaten in years.

Which door should you open and why?

My pick.

Door 3. Lions which have not eaten in years would be dead lions.
