Oh no...

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.

Jan 20, 2006

I love this one, this is going in my favourites.

That's funny, but why did he dump the water on the ground if there was no car there? Did he do it out of anger or was he not paying attention.
Feb 05, 2006

Kind of sounds like you made it up just to fit the phrase "Dude, where's my car".
It was a nice attempt, but in my opinion it wasn't that good. Still, to each their own, like you say.
Feb 12, 2006

Actually - I was trying to make up a good title for my teaser...apparantely it was a bad choice - made the teaser ever easier

"Dude, Where's My Car?" came from a movie I saw a few years ago
Feb 23, 2006

good one, but a bit easy
Mar 01, 2006

I'm changing the title of the teaser, hopefully the next veiwers won't have the answer thrown at them with the title...
Mar 25, 2006

LOL Celamba tats funny and a gud ques.
Apr 12, 2006

It was a great riddle even if the title was a big clue.
Apr 12, 2006

Don't get me wrong, I liked the teaser, but what I don't get is this: if the car was new, why was the man washing it? Am I just being stupid?
Apr 28, 2006

I thought that it was a convertable and it was raining. ;)
Jun 22, 2006

Good one! Thats going striaght to my favorites. I like it! I thought he was going to wash his car, but when he finally got down a ton load of stairs, and dropped the bucket! Haha.

It had started to rain and he had left the soft top down on his sports car.

The man poured water on the ground because he is dumb and did not realize that his car was stolen before pouring the water in the the spot that the car should be Just kidding it was a good teaser.
Mar 26, 2013

I thought either 1: the car malfunctioned when he put the water on, (I realized that cars cant malfuntion by water ) or 2: the paint came off and it looked like he had murdered someone.
Mar 27, 2013

Wondering why he felt the need to wash it when he'd only just bought it. Some people are just obsessive, I guess.
