Choose your own Adventure.

I saw this somewhere. Enjoy this riddle.

Imagine you are walking and went to a fork.

One of the paths leads to Stairway to Heaven and the other Highway to Hell.

There are two people standing, one always lies and the other always tells the truth.

You can only ask one question (same for both) to find out the right way.

What is the question?
Are you a person?

..?
"Which path would the other man tell me to take?"

Black Butler for the win >.>

Because the liar would tell you the wrong way, and the truth teller would tell the wrong way so you'd just take the opposite path :D

edited for explanation :D
Stab them both and see which one says that it doesn't hurt. He's the liar.

Edit:

Brilliance in action.

Obviously, I didn't come up with it.
"What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

Kill the one who doesn't get the reference.

If both do not, kill them both and play it safe.
I like the Who am I answer.
Ignore both of them and just go up the stairs.
if you resolve only the liar in one question, how do you resolve which path to take?
Go through the middle. Walk way to purgatory.
I thought this was going to be about adventure.
