      Amé's Riddle 2

      Okay, maybe this one'll stump ya a little...and it's another Detective Shadow riddle.

      Detective shadow walks into a room and sees a man lying on the floor dead. In the room are a table, 3 chairs, and 53 Bicycles. Immediately he knows how the man died. How did he?

      A cargo plane carrying bicycles flying over the house leaked and dropped 53 of them on the man.

      It was a triathalon. There were 53 of them in the race and the mans house was the switching point. The man was brutataly ran over as the autopsy will show.

      The arrangement doesn't really matter. Try to examine the meaning of the words. There's one in particular that's a key.

      Do you know the answer werburn? It works fine typed out, at least when you've got ppl who don't always know quite how to look for certain key things.

      Erm.. he got crushed by all the bikes and crap in the room, because that particular room was small and couldn't fit the bikes in?

      By the way, after this one's over, I say we all take a break from Riddles.. I mean, today there were like 50 of them!

      Nope....no bike stampede or crushings. But you're focusing on the right word. Now go context.

      (Okay, I'll break from riddles)

      Did someone come in and dump the bikes there and the owner said he couldn't so the guy picked up a chair and opened a can.

      He was not crushed. Try thinking about the most important question starters, "Who" "What" "Where" "When" "Why?" Not all of them are pertinent, but at least 2 are. Don't just take your first guesses.

      Okay. Is there a reason that "Bicycles" is capilatized in the described situation? Does the number of bikes have anything to do with the number of chairs? Did the bikes somehow kill the man, or help kill the man?

      Are we allowed to ask only yes and no questions, or something more direct?

      asdjfhasdf!!

      Are the Bicycles actual every-day bikes?

      Are the chairs or table significant?

      Did the dead man know these bikes would be in the room when he came in? (When he was alive, obviously)

      TheUnknown, no.

      I'm going to bed (and sleeping in! ). I'll post the answer tomorrow night if no one's guessed it.

      HINT: Think of the number, also.
