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?

He stole them from a circus!


Nope. No circus has that many eagles, and it's illegal (I think).

He was going to town to sell a bunch of tiny toy eagles, but he was shot.


He was shot on purpose. It wasn't an accident.

I'll give you guys a hint: the eagles were not stolen, captured or purchased illegally. The man was shot because of them. The man (as I already said) was not a poacher, and had never used a gun in his life.

Go back and read the first riddle and the solution (page 2, by me). The wording was extremely significant. The same applies to my riddle.

Sorry, the solution is on page 1. It's not that hard to find anyway.

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)

Nice try. The man was awake when he was shot.

He is an actor in some really bizarre show/movie[quote]

Again, the man is very literally dead.

The eagles have nothing to do with his death.


The eagles had everything 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)[quote]

No, he was murdered, and none of the eagles are missing. All of them are there.

Sorry for the quote error. The last three are backwards, not sure how that happened. Either way, all four guesses have been replied to.

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?

Dying was the result of his actions. He did something that earned a bullet. So, he DID die, but you want to know what he did to end up dead. But you knew that.

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


"Eagle activist?" Nope.

Another hint: He would not have been killed if he had 52 eagles.

Is the blood on the eagles the man's blood?


Already answered that. Yes.

Are they... desert eagles? :3 I have no idea. This is almost as bad as those mini-mysteries!

No. But you are closer than everyone else has been with that one guess.

I worked hard on those mini-mysteries, thanks so much.

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?

One man was training his Eagle. When he called him 52 eagles came. The man was suprised. Suddenly a 53th Eagle comes caring a gun. He dropped the gun, and the gun shot the trainer. All the eagles stayed near him, because they trough he is their trainer.

1) The heck is an Eagle doing with a gun?

2) Why is an Eagle holding that old of a gun that would fire after being dropped?
