If they "ALWAYS" lie then how could one tell the truth? regardless of the answer.

Yay, I got it right. I love teasers like this where I get them right but it is still not super-easy. A++ to whoever wrote this teaser. Definetly going under my faves and will get a full star for fun and half a purple thingy for popularity. You don't find teasers this good anywhere.

SliceOPi, they aren't telling the truth because they are not really the L people, they are tourists.

Another reason it's not type T or L is because everyone would say that they are type T.

I got it right. I said a non-resident so I was close enough.

Togglers—Alternately tell the truth or lie.
Togglers often say "I LIED!!" when telling a lie.

Who the heck raised the people that live on that island?!?!?!? Who were the parents, and are they crazy? I love this riddle.

I never heard this one before. I just thought it was mis-written. It was not a T or an L. I never thought of a tourist.

This is a pretty old one, but a good one nonetheless. Thanks for sharing and bringing back memories.
