Ok lets see how this goes. I noticed how dead this section was so here is my riddle I heard on a Boy scout trip.

I will answer yes/no questions and give you similar responses.


THE RIDDLE:

A bell rings, a man dies, a bell rings.

What happened?

(To clarify for all you nit pickers, first there is a sound of a bell ringing, and then a man dies, and then a bell rings.)

lol, one of the three scouting classics (Bell rings, Turtle Soup, and the arm in the mail)

I don't remember solving this one, though.  So...

is the death an accident?

Is cannibalism involved?

(I'm just extrapolating from CK9's two riddles).

Is there more than one bell involved?
Does the sound of a ringing bell lead to the death?
Is there only one death?
Does a man ring a bell?
Is there more than 1 person involved?
Is there more than 2 people involved?
Does a bell ring due to an automated system (like a fire alarm or other warning bell)?
Does a bell ring on it's own due to natural forces (such as wind chimes)?

was it a reverse Pavlovian experiment, where the bell ringing would mean food, that was never provided thus killing the man through cruel starvation? probably not.. just a thought. :heh:

Was the man who died trying to reach the bell?
Did the man die because he was trying to reach the bell? (if yes above)

Nope, but it seems odd that the man died without any visual feed to aid in this riddle.
so if the man can not see, and he is not dead prior to the bell toll
is the bell located on a vehicle?
is the bell located on a boat?
does the bell serve as a distraction to his death?
