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?

I will not disregard murder, accident, natural death, or suicide.

Other than that there really is no logical explanation, at least it isn't obvious anyways. Dang that's a toughie.

You know the first thing I thought was a prostitute, or maybe a clubber. Lmfao.

There can be more than one of 'em goin on

As for yours...I'm guessing the shoes were heels?
She bought heels and they were taller than normal..whatever her job was resulted in her death due to her height?

Tells or asks? xD
