It might also have been the second, because he died at the end and made another trip to get to where he was being buried. But I also thought the third. You gave way too many hints there.

I think its funny! It doesn't really take a great thought process to get it, but that only makes some of us feel smarter!

Actually, he could have died on, or before, any of them. It didn't say he was alive during all three trips.

Wait its not trip number 1?

What about if he had died on the first, or second and was transported in a coffin or urn on the remainder of the trips. He would still be making the trips but would just not be alive to witness the trips!

that was a little to easy

This made me laugh out loud. I knew it was easy by the rating, but never expected this.

At first I thought the 3d, but then I thought: If he died during the 3d, he would only have completed 2 trips; therefore, he must have died during the 4th, which didn't count since he didn't complete it?!!? What do U think of that?

Whoa, that was really, really easy. Good try though!

that teaser was very easy but good try

I'm with jimbo on that one. Surely, if he didn't complete the trip.. then he only finished 2 trips.

Then again.. a trip is still a trip even if you don't get to the destination. O_o

I agree with atropus... to misleading but still easy.

I thought it was a trick question! It was to easy!
