Seven Unsolvable Questions

Saturday, July 12, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

(Or solvable, but after small but significant parts of your brain have started smoking…)

Following the tradition of asinine posts, here’s my contribution for July. Winner gets to ask for a post on whatever they want!

Translation, original Chinese below:

1. The penguin:
One day, a girl cooked something for a boy. (Yes, please ignore the gender stereotypes.) When the boy finished eating, he thought it tasted a bit weird, so asked her what it was. She replied that she had fed him penguin meat. After a few moments deep in thought, the boy began crying and then killed himself. Why?

2. The train:
Someone took the train to see a doctor. After his appointment, he was cured. On the way back, the train went through a tunnel, and the person committed suicide by jumping out the train. Why?

3. The water weeds:
This guy went walking along a river with his girlfriend. He jumped into the water but couldn’t find her, and left sadly. A few years later, he saw an old man fishing at the same river, and the fish he got weren’t covered in weeds. He asked him how he managed to fish so that there were no weeds on the fish, and the old man replied, “You didn’t know? This river never had weeds growing in it.” (Must be some really polluted river then.) The boy suddenly jumped into the river and drowned himself. Why?

4. The funeral:
A woman died, and her second daughter met a handsome stranger at the funeral. After the funeral, however, he disappeared, and the younger sister searched high and low for him, but couldn’t find him… and a month later, the second daughter killed her older sister. Why?

5. The half matchstick:
Someone was found dead in the desert, facing downwards, with half a matchstick tightly held in his hand. His luggage lay next to him in the sand. How did he die?

6. The wood shavings:
There were two dwarves, but only one was needed in the circus. The two decided that the shortest one would join, and on the day of ‘official’ measuring, the shorter one, also blind, committed suicide. His home only contained wooden furniture and shavings. Why did he kill himself?

7. The knock at midnight:
A man lived in a cabin at the top of a mountain. He heard someone knocking on his door at midnight, but when he opened the door there was no one there. He went back to sleep. A while later, someone knocked on the door again. When he went to see, there was no one there again. He went back to bed. This repeated itself several times in the night. In the morning, someone found a corpse at the foot of the mountain, and the police arrested the man living in the cabin. Why?

Go ahead and guess! People who already know, shh! Answers will be posted in a week. 😀

1) 企鹅肉问题:

2) 跳火车问题:

3) 水草问题:

4) 葬礼故事的问题:

5) 半根火柴问题:

6) 满地木屑问题:

7} 夜半敲门问题:

Answers next week. Have fun guessing!

        where are the answers

    Bon alors la réponse du numéro 5 : C’est plusieurs mecs dans une mongolfière (ou un avion, ça dépend de la version) au dessus du désert et puis l’avion/mongolfière commence à perdre de l’altitude, alors les mecs decident de balancer des valises et tout ce qui est lourd. Ca marche pendant un moment, mais l’avion/mongolfière recommence a perdre de l’altitude. La seule solution possible est que l’un d’entre eux se sacrifie et se jette de l’avion/mongolfière avec sa valise. Pour decider lequel va mourir, ils tirent à la courte paille, et c’est ainsi qu’il est retrouvé mort avec une paille et sa valise dans le desert.

      It’s because she wanted to meet her dream man, she knew he was a friend of the family and killing her sister would likely bring back the man to her sister’s funeral.

    Interesting, I would say they are all suicidal, except for the last guy, he got so annoyed with the constant knocking that he just killed that person to get some sleep.

    #1 – Because he was allergic to penguin meat, so knew he would die a horrible death, so killed himself instantly.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site. It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

    Online marketing – It’s about more than having
    a pretty website. As with any online marketing activity, keep the
    message short, sweet and direct and be sure to include the necessary contact information needed
    to send in a referral. Once you have unveiled your web campaign function, keep track of how
    guests respond on blogs or other social network sites.

    Craig Primack said in an interview with The Star Telgram.
