So, there was a thread on here a while back dedicated to riddles. Thaboss hasn't seen any new thread recently, so he's decided to start his own. Feel free to post and respond to any riddles.

Here's a classic one.

Bob hates his job. One day, while Bob is working on the 34th floor of an office building, he decides he's fed up with it. He rips open a window, and jumps through it. Although Bob is on the 34th floor, and there was nothing to stop, slow down, or cushion his fall, when he landed, he was perfectly fine. How?

There was possibly a balcony on the 33rd/34th floor that stopped him.

He was not close to the ground. Your reasoning of his job title being important is correct.

Sorry for the DP.. There were no balconies, he didn't jump to a different building, and it's a full sized office building with floors with space between them. Again, the job title is important.

MattEmAngel is correct.

Are the eagles all dead?

Was the man shot, and then the eagles came to eat his remains?

It's a riddle. If I had asked you what job is Bob you wouldn't have told me. You're not suppose to ask questions.

Also, (Another random guess :/) he's outside an animal shop.

Alright..I'm just goin to say a few thoughts to try to get something goin here with the solution..

He/someone was dreaming *trollface*

He is an actor in some really bizarre show/movie

The eagles have nothing to do with his death

The eagles aren't real eagles (a guess out of this..they are fake eagles..decorative of some kind..and he was mugged for some)

The question is, "What did he do?" Thaboss is gonna go out on a limb and say the answer is "He died."

Other than that, maybe an eagle activist didn't like seeing so many captive eagles and shot him?

I've got it! The man was a reporter for the Wichita Eagle!

He has just written his first news article and was on his way to tell his family about it (and, of course, give them each a copy of the article) when he was mugged *gasp*

However! The mugger didn't realize that a police officer was sitting right there and he was apprehended immediately!

Case. Closed.

No way would that many eagles fly together, or even live together

Matt said it himself. there is no way that many eagles would live together. Anyway, stopping being a prosecutor...
Wait... You said that here were 53 eagles flying around him, but in a hint you said he wouldn't have died if there where 52. So 1 eagle didn't do what all the others did?
