A Shocking Tale

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.

That was an amazing story! Definitely not a teaser though. It seems like that guy wouldn't survive with all that electricity going through his clothes.

I had already heard about this story and I still didn't get the answer!
The teaser could have used a bit more info. Loved the explanatory answer.

This teaser would've have been better if you mentioned what the guy had been wearing.

That is one of the coolest teasers I've seen. Sure, the answer may have been long, but you could skim read it if you were that annoyed with it.Loved that teaser!!

while this is an awsome story, it is not really a teaser. there is little evidence in the teaser to give one the idea that that is possible.

I doubt anyone would be able to answer this correctly. nonetheless, it was a very interesting teaser. I had no idea it was possible. Great

the only problem I see is that you say "someone hears a firecracker go off" but there is no firecracker, the witness stated that "It sounded almost like a firecracker,"
