Death On Arrival ?
« on: November 29, 2005, 02:55:28 AM »
This one i learned over 20 years ago:
--------------------------------
There is a man lying on the lawn. He is dead.
Next to him there's a package. Because of it he's now dead.

What's in the package?
--------------------------------
You may ask any question - my answers will be either yes, no or irrelevant

Did the package scare him to death?
Did the package contain a harmful substance? (Gas? white powder? other chemical?)
Did the package fall out of an airplane and land on his head, thus killing him?  :P (Could have had a brick in the package. Or a purse.  <_< )

did the package have a picture of his Mother in law?
if anyone finds and communicate to us that which thus far has eluded our efforts, great will be our gratitude.

Hmmm i suppose he died because he finally got his package

Or his Nitus tablets were in that package and he needed them but couldnt get the package open because he was having a mild heart attack.

HMMM He is packagephobic

He was beaned in the head by the package

He slipped on the package because it was infront of the door and he didnt see it and went down like a sack of old tomatos

That package contained a porn mag and he died from the excitment

Hooman: no, no, and .. uhm.. not quite
zanco: no, although that could have killed him also :P .. but not in this case
freeza: no, no, wtf is a 'packagephobic' lmao!
then: no, no and no.

guys: maybe you should start asking questions around it -- that might help..
Hooman: you're so close, yet so far off :D

the package has a robotic arm with some sort of hyperdermic needle, or claw inside that when you pick it up it stabs you, eather injecting you with a posion or ripping your heart out. in the case of the heart the package now contains a robotic arm and a huuman heart

The box contained cyanide/etc? A bomb? A picture of haxtor?

Had the package been opened?

Lol, a picture of Haxtor. Play nice now.

Did the package cause blunt force trauma leading to death?
Is the package large in relation to the person?
Is the package heavy in relation to the person?
Was the package previously travelling at a significant velocity?

did the man jump off a building to catch the package that was thrown by a evil evil man that holds the key to existence but was stupid and hit the ground and the package hit him in the head hard enought to kill him.

You were trying to say what?  :huh:

Couldn't you just talk like Tarzan or something? It would be easier.

Plane, jump, no parachute, dead.

Besides, sounds like the ground may have killed him, not the package. At least that's what I gather from the questions and answers about the package.

so the package fell out of an airplane/skyscraper, and it had somthing inportant in it, so he tried to get it, and fell, and died on impact?

let me guess, it had divorce papers in it, and if he lost them he would still be married to some tramp
