Shadow and His Plane

Situation 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.

Shadow was preparing to get on a plane and fly to Germany to solve an important case. Suddenly, his assistant rushed up to him, and told Shadow he had had a dream last night that Shadow's plane would crash and begged him not to go. Shadow wordlessly went to the plane and survived the flight. Upon reaching Germany, Shadow called and had his assistant fired. Why?

One additional note: Shadow was not superstitious.

Straight from the game mindtrap, splendid piece of direct lifting, and possible copyright breach as

Actually, it wasn't straight from the game. Go and read that card again. When I was in Grade school somebody read that to me. I just did a basic sketch of the thing. Really, he probably wasn't going to Germany.

I never said I didn't believe you, you must be suffering from guilt. And profanity is the refuge of the defeated.

You said, "is that your only defense against the "shadow and his plane" teaser,...ha ha ha ha...." That is basically saying you don't believe me whether you'll admit to it or not.
Jun 18, 2002

no missie you misunderstood, I was laughing at the fact that even though some else read it to you (maybe or maybe not from the mind trap game) you still think its ok to use.
Jun 18, 2002

I'm sorry. That was one of the first teasers I've posted here. I didn't know people were so particular.
Jun 28, 2002

Hey, I have not posted any teasers in this web-site, but really the ones I am GOING to post are all from the game "mindtrap"

Or his asistant could have been a psycic (sp?) and he/she was wrong, so the assistant was fired

I knew this one before... It was a company president, and his nighttime security guard told him not to take the plane.. The plane did crash indeed, without the boss on board.

About the Mindtrap thing.. of course, the better enigmas are the classic.. and we don't always know where we learned them from. Missie posted lots of teasers, and most of them are good ones.

bmott they wernt onl gud they wer mad it sez ur allowed to take teasers frm other places as long as you change them a bit.
Jul 04, 2003

Missie all of your teasers either suck or are good ones that you have stolen. Try to use your own brain to come up with something good!

Man, it bugs me when people like extrammj criticize other people's teasers when they haven't ever produced a thing themselves.
Jan 05, 2004

Let me add that copyright violations are never a good thing and could get the site in a world of hurt.
Jul 30, 2004

huh? what's a stakeout? this is really odd...
May 03, 2005

i've heard this one before except they found the bomb.
Nov 08, 2008

I agree with extrammj. Mindtrap is a copyrighted game. Can you at least get rid of the name Shadow? It is almost a trademark of the game. I got my username from the game, so I should know. And can't people use PROPER ENGLISH?! THIS IS NOT A CHATROOM!!! It gets annoying after a while. And I also agree with Mad Ade regarding missie's teasers.

I thought that he found no evidence in Germany, and His assistant didnt want him to look because she was the murderer or robber in the case...

Agreed, this is copied from Mindtrap and is therefore plagiarism.
