Subject: The Turtle Soup Game

Written By: randyripoff on 08/20/19 at 9:26 pm

Many years ago, I taught folklore at a summer camp(we had new campers each week of different ages, from 8-15). At the time, the folklore class was pretty unstructured, so I could more or less do as I pleased. Sometimes I told ghost stories, sometimes sports games, sometimes mythology, whatever I thought might be entertaining to the kids. One of the most useful things we did was two minute mysteries, as they allowed me to be lazy. 😁

The basic rules are as follows: a scenario is laid before the people playing, and you're allowed to ask as many yes/no questions as you like to determine the answer.

I request the following :

* One question per post

* If you already know the answer, please keep it to yourself and let others play. Same with Googling the answer.

Once the scenario is solved, the person who solves it gets to post a new one OR they can pass it back to someone else who's interested (FYI, I'm happy to post more).

So here's the first scenario :

A man is found dead, surrounded by 52 bicycles. What happened?

That's the answer. The man was caught playing with marked cards and killed because of it. There were 52 bicycles because they were Bicycle brand playing cards.

I really need to recap these to ask an intelligent question...


In the interest of moving forward, I'll throw out a new one.

Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice all live in the same house. Bob and Carol go out to a movie, and when they return, Alice is lying dead on the floor in a puddle of water and glass. It is obvious that Ted killed her but Ted is not prosecuted or severely punished.

Subject: Re: The Turtle Soup Game

Written By: randyripoff on 09/22/19 at 6:09 am

A man lives on the twelfth floor of an apartment building. Every morning he wakes up, gets dressed, eats, goes to the elevator, takes it down to the lobby, and leaves the building for work. In the evening, he goes through the lobby to the elevator, and, if there is someone else in the elevator (or if it was raining that day) he goes back to his floor directly. However, if there is nobody else in the elevator and it hasn't rained, he goes to the 10th floor and walks up two flights of stairs to his room.

Just to avoid confusion, the solution is why his behavior changes.

Two men, one big and burly and the other short and thin, enter a bar. They both order identical drinks. The big one gulps his down and leaves; the other sips his slowly, then dies.



Was the other man's drink poisonous?



Yes



Did they both "receive" identical drinks?  (Despite what they ordered)



Yes.
.
I get the feeling this will be a quick one.



Are drink/food allergies involved here?



No



Has the glass of the other man been tampered with?



No



Did the first man have a full stomach and the second have an empty stomach?



Irrelevant



Did the first man throw up after gulping his drink?



No



Had the big man been ingesting small doses of poison and become immune to it?



No



Did the other man have a loose tooth and choked on it?



No



Was the second man killed by poison?



Yes



Did the first man's drink have poison?



Yes



Did either one or both men know they were getting poison?



No



Did the bartender know either/both men?



Irrelevant



Did the bartender know the drinks contained poison?



Irrelevant



Was someone else in the bar (besides the two subject men and bartender) responsible for the poison?



Irrelevant



Was someone else in the bar (besides the two subject men and bartender) involved?



Irrelevant



Was it the fact of the first man being heavier (metabolism) and he "gulped" it that he wasn't affected by the poison?



No



Did both men ingest the same amount of poison?



No



Did the second man who drank slowly ingest more poison than the first man who gulped?



Yes



When the bartender served the drinks, did they contain the same amount of poison as when the second man died?



Yes



Was the two drinking men's constitutions so different, the first man wasn't susceptible to this poison whereas the second man was?



No.



I am stumped on this one.

Was there a bar pianist playing in the background?



Irrelevant



Alternatively, was the big and burly man the pianist?



Irrelevant



Was the quantity of poison the big man drank considered "non-lethal"?



No



Did the first man have less poison in his drink than the second man?



No



Did the first man have more poison in his drink than the second man?



No.



If both drinks are identical, shouldn't the quantity of the poison be the same in both drinks?



Yes



Was there any poison coming from the air (as opposed to only in the drinks)



No



Was the second man more sensitive to that type of poison than the first man?

Yes! You finally figured it out.

The poison was not in the liquid, but in the icd. As the first man drank quickly, the ice did not melt and therefore the poison did not get into the drink. The second man was affected because he allowed the ice to melt before finishing his drink.

Your turn.

Hi, the way this game works is that whoever solves the current question gets to ask the next or specify someone else to do so. Personally I would like it if someone were asking questions other than myself, but there is currently one unsolved that's being worked on.

You could try to answer the current question and then post your new one if you're correct. Additionally someone may pass to you when they solve the current problem. I think you'll see some good engagement then.
