This one is a classic, and is a great one for the kids at home. It does not involve arms in boxes, suicide, or guns.  Wink Many can get this through simple reasoning, and is sometimes solved rather quickly.

As always, if you know the answer from playing this before, please let others play out the game.

Please ask single, yes or no questions. You need to come up with the explanation that tells the story as to why the circumstances happen the way they do.


Every day, a man living on the 40th floor, leaves to go to work by using the elevator. When he leaves, he goes all the way to the first floor, then departs the building. But upon arriving back home, he enters the elevator, goes to the twentieth floor, gets out, and takes the stairs for the last twenty floors. Why?

I want to suggest that we do as Bjorn lightly mentioned in the prior post, we can collaborate info - like dectives sharing notes. Here is what I observe, and Bjorn if any math needs correcting, please fix - thanks.

First thing to come to my mind, he walked or sprinted the last 20+ flights as his nighty gym work, but the math don't add up - he comes home, goes to the 12th floor (wonder if there is a 13? floor twist) but 12 floors plus 20 which he climbs or runs wont make him to his floor? he still have 7 floors to go.

Does the building have a thirteens floor and if so, can the UP elevator make it to the fortieth floor? I assume it must, or he couldn't have gotten on it earlier that morning.

SO, my one question after a few observations. Is he clastrophic (I suffer panic disorder and know what panic is like) becuse a DOWN ELEVATOR can typically go down faster than it will UP, did he have a limit to the time he COULD STAND BEING IN AN ELEVAOR??

That is as dective as I get, HELP!!!!! Lets get this one together.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

 Lips Sealed Thank you for those that know this one.

Beemaster, No, he is not claustrophobic.

And Yes, the elevator does go all the way to the 40th floor.

You said to ask important questions... Does SYMBOLICALLY the 20th to the 40th have a special meaning to him? If I were allowed a followup, I'd ask what's so special about 20th thru 40th when RETURNING, which I assume is going up. Is that the case, or does the importance of only climbing "up" the issue or is the climbing DOWN from 40th to 20th every come into his daily routine?

Answer anyone you feel like, something I'm close on please (if that is the case) and I'll have to share the puzzles I mde for a young member of the forum - who enjoys riddles. I made several multiparters, some involving morse code, scrabbled sentences, all this (rated T for Tough) and he is and eigth grader now - been doing this almost 3 school seasons. I travel the world and make you think out of the box with my THOUGH riddles I make ( all online in html) so you can just click on them - I need  to check the filenames. I'm proud of Buzzbee Jr. for ALWAYS answering tough puzzles, definitely aimed at a 11th to 12th grader.

There I regress  Cry

Beemaster,

No, there is no symbolic meaning. And the stairs whether going up or down are the same. And he never walks down the stairs.
