Think Lateral

1. Blind beggar
A blind beggar had a brother who died. What relation was the blind beggar to the brother who died? Brother is not the answer.
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. The elder twin
One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her elder twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How come?
Answer: ----------
3. Cabin men Two men are lying dead in a cabin in the mountains, in the snow. No fresh snow has fallen since their arrival, and yet there are no tracks leading to or from the cabin. How did they come to be there?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Jason
Jason is lying dead, with an iron bar across his back and some food in front of him. Why did he die?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Death in a Field
A man is lying dead in a field, with an unopened package. There is no other creature in the field. How did he die?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Heaven
A man died and went to Heaven. There were thousands of other people there. They were all nak*** and all looked as they did at the age of 21. He looked around to see if there was anyone he recognised. He saw a couple and he knew immediately that they were Adam and Eve. How did he know?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Hypothermia
A body is discovered in a park in Chicago in the middle of summer. It has a fractured skull and many other broken bones, but the cause of death was hypothermia.
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Cure for insomnia
A man is lying awake in bed, unable to sleep. He makes a phone call, says nothing, and then is able to sleep.
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. Wife in the car
A man and his wife raced through the streets. They stopped, and the husband got out of the car. When he came back, his wife was dead, and there was a stranger in the car. How come?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Speeding? A man drives down the highway at 55 miles per hour. He passes three cars going 60 miles per hour, then gets pulled over by a police officer and is given a ticket. Why?
Answer:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks,
Mani

i think the body is an ancient one. may be the body was lying there for many centuries. the cause of death may be Hypothermia but after that the bones might have been broken.
