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.

Two kids were sitting on a school bus. One of them was looking out the window. The other looked over and said, "What's wrong, why are you sad?" He couldn't see her face, and she was not making any sounds, so how did he guess?

Are we supposed to ask yes or no questions on this kind? these confuse me.

Deep sigh, Deepsea- he could see her reflection in the window glass too, no?
Sep 09, 2005

i loved it!couldnt figure it out though.i had a mood ring but it leaves black bands on my fingers

But mood rings don't work.

"Mood rings" consist of heat-sensitive quartz, which DO work since mood affects body temperature. Somewhat coincidentally, blue is sad, red is mad.

I hope no one truly buys this...
Aug 02, 2007

Haha, I thought that it was a good one.

I'm going to disagree. You can be sad with cold or warm hands.

What!?! That answer is so out there it's not even funny! I too thought it was her reflection or maybe a tear running down her face?
Mar 04, 2009

Didn't say his/her reflection could not be seen! BTW it's blue for happy in mood rings which really don't work! I can be really really happy when I'm quite hot and flustered at certain times

I thought it was because she was sitting still staring out the window not saying anything : P

Sigh. What kind of name is that? Those mood rings are never accurate
