What's a Conundrum?
A conundrum is a puzzling question or problem in which the person trying to solve the problem may need to ask questions to gain the information needed to solve it.

How to play
I will post the Conundrum -- it is then up to everyone to try and work out the solution/answer by asking questions; however, the only answers I can provide are:
Yes - Your question's on track; obviously, the answer to your question is 'Yes'.
No - Your questions on track; obviously, the answer to your question is 'No'.
Irrelevant - Your question is not on track; answering it would simply lead you further from the answer.

If you know the answer (ie: you have heard/done this conundrum before, please don't just post the answer). However, if you work out the answer whilst asking/reading the questions, then please feel free to post your answer.

Don't be afraid to ask a question -- even if it's irrelevant, it is helping as it identifies the paths that people shouldn't be going down. Also, feel free to ask multiple questions in one post, to speed up the process.

A Jehovah Witness is going from door to door -- he arrives at a house and knocks. A man answers and they begin to talk -- eventually, the man invites the Jehovah Witness inside. As soon as the Jehovah Witness enters the house, he realises that he is going to die that day.
How did he know he was going to die?


Page 4, Post #59.
A man lives on the twelfth floor of an apartment building. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and leaves the building. In the evening, he gets into the elevator, and, if there is someone else in the elevator -- or if it was raining that day -- he goes back to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the tenth floor and walks up two flights of stairs to his apartment.
why does he stop on the tenth floor if no one was in the elevator..or if it wasn't raining?


Lastest Conundrum starts on Page 9 and Post #134
There is a man dead in an alley with 52 bicycles around him. He had been shot. There was a large pile of dollar bills around him.
Why was he shot?

Irrelevant - it could have been a doctor, but the man's profession isn't really important.

Was it something that was said that convinced him he would die?

No.
