I figure that if he says his nose will grow, then it will grow. That'd be the only possible solution.

If it doesn't grow, then he's lying and it will grow

If he's telling the truth, it will grow.



I dont think his nose growing is limited to only when he lies, like couldnt it grow due to other reasons? I dunno, just a theory

We actually got this in philosophy, and the professor gave us a pat on the back for that answer, which took a while.   
Anon is smart.

If he says it will grow now, it will grow after he says it, because he lied, and it grew after he said it, which is not "now", so technically, he lied, and his nose grew.

Wouldn't it just grow, becuase he doesn't actually know, and so it grows but then that's the end of it.

Allright smart guy I got another question:
Now that he knows, what will hapen if he says it again?
User avatar #18 to #17 - iamthefirstnigger (04/06/2013) [-]
It will grow and shrink because, at first he is telling a lie and when the nose grows it will become the truth. So it will just shrink back.

It wouldn't grow, because he cannot predict the future.

I always figured that a paradox like this would just kill him.

It's the best theory we have so far...

If your weatherman says that it's going to rain on friday, and it doesn't, was he lying? No.   
Was he telling the truth? Not really either.   
Predictions are neither truth nor lie. Therefore nothing would happen to our dear wooden friend there. (Nor would he bleed, as the content portrays, since he's made of wood at that point and thus has no blood.)

Well, actually.
Predictions can be truth.
If your weatherman says that it is going to rain when there is absolutely no chance, then he is lying.

Predictions can turn out to be true later, but without knowledge that you are going to be correct or going to be incorrect, I still contend that you cannot be lying.

The way I'd explain it if he says "my nose will now grow" and it doesn't, he didn't really lie, he was just wrong, so nothing would happen.
But then after that he knows nothing will happen, so he would be lying, in which case it's ****** once more.
