# The GREAT thread of riddleness

I've got an idea, not a good one, but here goes:

I'll post a logic problem/riddle here. Whoever answers it correctly gets to post another logic problem/riddle, the person who answers that one gets to post the next and so on.

The police found a dead body in an office. It looked like a scuicide, the victim had shot himself in the head. There's a note that says to listen to the tape. There's a tape recorder on the deask, a tape inside. the police pres "play" and listen to it. they hear the man's voice- "my life is a mess, I can't take it" then they hear a gunshot. The police knew it was a murder, but how?

kinda easy. the answer is right in the paragraph

It's not a suicide

He did not commit suicide somebody killed him...bec.of the recorder, who rewind it if he committed suicide. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

The problem with this 'contest' is that anyone can post a riddle anytime they want.

What if the person who answers doesn't post/doesn't know a riddle? Does that mean that we can post a riddle instead of him?

"...the police press "play" and listen to it..."
"...-''my life is a mess,I can't take it'' then they hear a gunshot"

The policeman must have asked himself who had turned off the tape recorder
than?

How do you know the gunshot you heard on the tape was the gunshot which killed the man?

Icebreaker
The police pressed PLAY, yet did not REWIND. If the man really did kill himself, then he couldn't have rewinded the tape for the police to listen.

i guess all of you got it ??? yomama ?

1) Man fires a shot which is recorded on tape
2) Man stops tape and rewinds it.
3) Man kills himself with a second shot

Icebreaker
The question did not give indication that there were multiple shots fired.

The question was about how they could KNOW that a murder had been committed.
They can't..

Oh well, just to get this off my chest:

A man lives in an apartment at 10th floor, and each morning, he takes the elevator down and goes to work.
But, returning from work, he always walks the stairs rather than using the elevator.
Why is that?

Umm, in white He's too short to reach the button?

icvotria has the honour of posting the next riddle..

Bill and Bob are twins. Bill was born 45 mins before Bob, but the birth certificates show that Bob was born 15 mins before Bill. The birth certificates are accurate. How could this be?

The clocks went back one hour sometime after Bob was born. 15 minutes later Bill was born.

Yep, he did. Sorry it took me so long to reply! Huckleberry's go.

How would you rearrange the letters in the words "New Door" to make one word?
