Riddle me this, jackarse

I'll have to delay writing about what I wanted to write about today so instead I've got a riddle. The answer to be posted, uh, when someone gets it right...

You've died and you find yourself up in the clouds in a room with two identical doors. You know that one of the doors leads to heaven and one leads to hell but you don't know which is which. Each of the doors is guarded by a man. The men know which door they are guarding. You know that one of the men ALWAYS tells the truth and the other ALWAYS lies. You are allowed to ask one of them one question. It cannot be a question you know the answer to (ie: "is the sky blue?") - what do you ask?

Okay Johnsy has cracked it, with the help of some cheating. The answer OBVIOUSLY is that you ask one of them "What would the other guy say if I asked him which door he was guarding?"

Whatever the guy answers is the door he is guarding: If it's the guy guarding heaven he knows the guy guarding hell will lie and say "heaven" but if you ask the guy guarding hell he knows the other guy will say heaven so he lies and says "hell".
