Desert SuicideSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man is sitting in a broken-down car in the desert, waiting to be rescued. He turns a page in the book he's reading, a fiction novel. He then grabs a gun from the glove compartment and shoots himself. Why?
HintIt doesn't matter how he got there, what he was reading, or why he had a gun.
AnswerHe was a hemophiliac and when he turned the page, he got a big paper-cut. Rather than bleed to death, he decided on a less painful death.
