    For those interested, the final answer to my puzzle in the divinaza is up, it should be near the end of the posts in that thread.

    Thanks, final question:

    Did you become very annoyed near the end?

    No! It was quite good fun all along actually!

    Yes. I joined in a little late, but enjoyed cracking my brain on why those men were becoming so annoyed in the end...
    So, got any new ones?

    I could try to think another one up, but it would be hard to better that one - someone else should have a go!

    It doesn't have to be better than that one, it just have to be fun to solve it . The last one was maybe a little too hard...

    I only know this one:

    A man travelled by train in the 'non-smoking-section', had he travelled 'smoking' he'd still be alive.

    I heard it long ago, so assumed it's well known by now. Maybe it's already done in the 'Divinanza' thread, I only read the last part of that.

    This puzzle wasn't in the divinanza thread and I don't know him...

    some questions...

    Does he smoke?
    Did he smoke in the train?
    Did he knew he was in the 'non-smoking-section'?
    Did anybody else smoked where he was?
    Is he a normal human? (not an alien or something)
    Could anyone else be it? (is it a specific person)
    Does he have a disease?
    Is it a normal train?
    Is the type of the train relevant?
    Is the place of the train relevant?
    Are his clothes relevant?
    Does he have any siggarettes?
    Did anybody kill him?
    Did anybody want to kill him?

    EDIT:
    did he knew already he would have died before he went into the train?
    Was his dead an accident?
    Did anybody else in the train died?
    Did anybody in the train survive?
    Was the train emty-er than normal?
    Was the train fuller than normal?
    Did he want to die?

    So, did something he incorrectly believed make him want to kill himself?

    Did the injury involve him sticking his head out of a window?
