I made this one up. Pretty obvious too. Here's my sad attempt at a conundrum:

A man walks aimlessly through the streets. He notices a cute bug on the side of the road and decides to take it home. The police find him and arrest him. Why?

You are in da room with two wooden doors leading out. Trough 1 wooden door is a treasure, teeming with jewels and gold, leading to an exit. Behind another door is a giant, mean jaguar that will eat on anyone dumb enough to open the wooden door. You don't know which wooden door goes to the exit and treasure. Nor do you know which wooden door leads to the jaguar. In the room you are in are two people. One is a priest, who always tells the truth, and a a tricky deceitful fellow, who always lies. They both know what's behind both wooden doors. You don't know who's the priest, Nor do you know which one is the tricky deceitful fellow. You can ask one person 1 question. What's the question you should ask to go to the wooden door leading to the treasure & exit? Don't choose wrong :tazz:.

Ask each of them which door THE OTHER ONE WOULD SAY the jaguar is behind. The priest will name the door that the jaguar is NOT behind, because the lying person would lie about the door, and the priest always tells the truth. The lying person will also name the door that the jaguar is NOT behind, because the priest would give the correct door, but the lying person has to lie about it and so will switch to the incorrect door.

Then, walk through the door that the two people do NOT name.

Time for a new conundrum! I made this one up also.

A man is standing on the 25th floor, otherwise the top floor, of an appartment complex. A series of events happen. A girl screams. A loud sound goes. He sees a bird right above him dive down. He knows he is about to die. How so?

That's the same concept as the island where the natives lie and the visitors tell the truth.

Is the bird dead?
Is the girl injured?
Is she dead?
