you do ask alot questions to figure this one out, i learned it over the summer at work, and it took us all day asking my boss questions on our breaks to figure it out, but i think its a good one.


was he married?


also where is the restaraunt?


heh this one is so hard ill help out a little was the guy a sailor?


doesnt it go, like, the guy was a sailor and he and his crew got shipwrecked and the captain served them "albatross soup" and he realized it didnt taste like that on the island and he realized he ate his shipmates???

If that was the case though... where does being blind come into play?


the way i was told, he became blind during a plane wreck. they wrecked on a desert island, and the other survivors gave him "albatross" to eat. he went into the restaurant, got the albatross soup, tated it, realized he wasnt eating alabtross on the island, figured it was people, and killed himself.

no offense, but that is a bad riddle. A riddle has to give you the clues needed for you to solve it, but you gave only a portion of what was needed. Also, the fact that he was a sailor only allows you to come up with one of numerous hypothetical situations to answer the question.

see though these aren't riddles it's lateral thinking, another words a broad statement is made and you have to ask an array of questions to get an idea of the background, kinda like a detective.

ya no one would have figured that out. You do have to ask a lot of questions for those kinds of puzzels.

restaraunt on deserted island seems a little fishy to me . . .

And not to be a horrible person, but wouldn't the other survivors eat the blind guy first. I mean, he wouldn't be able to see them sneaking up on him to kill him. It just seems logical that he would be the easiest to get into the pot and cook. I hope that doesn't seem to horrible.

Alright well here is another one of those ask questions puzzels you have to find out.

Ok a man is fishing in the middle of a sea. He is by himself and has no life vest on. He has no idea of how to swim, he cant foat, he cant doggie pattel, he cant do anything in water. He falls overboard in the middle of the lake, and ends up 20 feet away from the boat after falling overboard. 30 minutes later a rescue crew comes and saves the man who is still alive. how did he manage to survive?

lol accident, he fell in the sea. and this deals a bit with geography. this can only happen in one sea i believe.

Did he fall in the Dead Sea?

The Dead Sea has a LOT of salt in it. Salt water is heavier (denser) than regular water so it is easier to float in the Dead Sea than any other sea.
