Diver's Discovery

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.

Good.. but aren't questions like these ones you're supposed to be able to ask questions to? It would seem pretty hard to get the answer otherwise. Oh well.

It could just be that there wasn't a chance they could survive so it would be better to die a quick death

Cool. Keep them coming.

As in this teaser, when the answer is about 10x as long as the question, it starts to become plain dumb.

Why wouldn't one guy shoot the other guy and then shoot himself?

You forgot to mention that their middle names were Horace and Jeremy and that one of them had a sister who raised platypusses.

cool one. keep it up!

why was one holding a coin and one holding a gun? because that was how they died
oh, did you mean *why* were they holding the gun and the coin when they died...

That was very clever! I loved it. I never even thought of the correct answer! I thought it was something like a man had found gold and the other man shot him to get it, but that didn't explain the hint and left too many loose ends. It was creative and good, no matter what all the others (who probably didn't read the whole teaser) say.

Water way to go!

It's a good teaser if you can ask questions to gain additional information, but how you expect someone to deduce that answer from the clues you gave is beyond me, I'm afraid.
