[android18] Window Pain

Postby android18 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:50 am

Time for another dead person puzzle, based on a story I read...

Charlie knew he was going to die when he looked out of the window.

Did he see something relevant? An army? Weather? A fire? Person/people? Relevant where he was? A house? An apartment? A business? A hospital? Did he know he was going to die because.... He would be killed there? By a person/people? By fire? Flood? Some other kind of disaster? Or would he die of natural causes? Perhaps because help couldn't reach him in time?

Yay, dead man puzzle!

Does he see one person? A couple of people? Many people? An angry mob? A concerned crowd? People in a relevant profession?

Will the person/people intend to kill him? Did he do something wrong? Illegal? Are they destroying the building?

Could he be in a store? A restaurant? A library? A church?

Interesting...does he believe he will die in the same manner that the person intends to kill him? Is it in fact the one relevant person who intends to kill him? Do all the people intend to?

If/when he dies, will it be murder? An execution? A self-defense related killing? Accidental in any way? Suicidal in any way?

Does he want to die?

Relevant that he's looking through a window? Would this work if he were looking through a glass door? The wall of a greenhouse? If the wall were missing entirely and he looked out through the opening?
