The Not-So-Miraculous Jump
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.
A young boy jumped off the top of a 5 storey building and landed unharmed, except for sore feet. How is this possible?
HintThe top of the building had round bumps on it...
The boy jumped off a Lego building! He landed on some loose Lego bricks, which hurt his feet.

|Good teaser. I guessed something along those lines (prototype building) but still it's creative.|

|I thought it was going to be like, he jumped off onto a scaffolding just 3 feet from the roof, or something. Then I read the hint, and became thoroughly lost. Good one!|

|I agree with doctapeppa, wouldn't the building have collapsed? Also, when I build a one-story building, it is like 8 inches high. The building would be two thirds of the boy's height, how did he get up there? |

|Could have jumped into water. Could have jumped off the top to a ledge on the level below. Could have jumped in place. |

|I thought this was a misplaced trick brainteaser until i read the hint. Good one! |
