Great idea! Seeing my name after the word assassination scared me a little at first though! ;)

Is an assassination relevant? if so, in actual history?

Boy = human? Man = human?

Did the man die from suffocation? drowning? fire? murder?

Does the boy wnt the man to die? Does the boy know his actions got a man killed? Does the boy know the man? Doe the boy go in a toilet? Urinal? On a tree? A street? In bushes? Relevant? If the boy went to this place to do something else, would the man still die?

Does the boy wnt the man to die? Irr. Does the boy know his actions got a man killed? Irr; depends on his exact age. Does the boy know the man? No. Does the boy go in a toilet? Urinal? On a tree? A street? In bushes? No to all. Relevant? Yes. If the boy went to this place to do something else, would the man still die? Depends on what the boy did, but probably not, at least not in exactly the same way.

If the boy went to this place and poured some water, would the man die? Flushing relevant? Time between peeing and Death: instant? Seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Did the boy go outside? Did the man die outside? Temperature relevant? Electricity?
Did the killer mean to kill: this man, specifically? Some person? Someone from a certain Group? Anyone? The boy? Does the boy know the victim? The killer? Is the killer A? M?

If the boy went to this place and poured some water, would the man die? Probably, but again, there would be a different path to his death. Flushing relevant? No. Time between peeing and Death: instant? Seconds? Minutes? This. Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Did the boy go outside? Yes. Did the man die outside? Yes. Temperature relevant? Electricity? No to both.
Did the killer mean to kill: this man, specifically? This. Some person? Someone from a certain Group? Anyone? The boy? Does the boy know the victim? No. The killer? No. Is the killer A? M? Yes to both.

Is the man killed in war-time? Was he hiding? And the boy accidentally pees on him? Or near him? And he is discovered?

Is the man a criminal? Would the killing be considered self-defense? Or protecting the boy?

Does the boy urinate on the man directly? Or on something the man is inside? Or on something belonging to the man?

Does this take place outside? Inside?

Is the man a criminal? The one who dies? Assume no. Would the killing be considered self-defense? No. Or protecting the boy? No, but yopishly relevant.

Does the boy urinate on the man directly? This. Or on something the man is inside? Or on something belonging to the man?

Does this take place outside? This. Inside?

Did Joe instruct Trevor to urinate on him? The killer instructed Trevor? Just to confirm, there are 3 people involved in this puzzle; Trevor, Joe and the killer?

Set in modern times? Before 50 years ago? 100? Farther. Assume 17th-18th Century.
I think I've neglected to welcome you to the board, android18, so happy to have you and thanks for taking a crack at one of my puzzles!

Thank you very much and you're most welcome; I actually joined about 8 or 9 months ago but only recently returned. :)

Based on an actual historical event? Did Joe know that if Trevor urinated on him, he'd die? Are Joe and Trevor on the same 'side'?

Is it possible that Joe is killed before Trevor urinates on him? If so, as a sign of disrespect? Or as a sign of disrespect in general?

Disrespect yopeishly intended in that the killer told Trevor to do the relevant thing in a disrespectful manner? So could Trevor still 'cause' Joe's death by not necessarily urinating on him?

Disrespect yopeishly intended in that the killer told Trevor to do the relevant thing in a disrespectful manner? There really isn't a respectful way to get urinated on. You need to explore the situation. So could Trevor still 'cause' Joe's death by not necessarily urinating on him? Assume no; this was probably the best method available under the circumstances.
