    Jimmy lives on the 15th story of an apartment building. Each morning he gets up, has a bit o breaky etc, then gets in the elevator and catches it to the ground floor, gets out and goes to work.

    In the evening when he arrives at his building, he gets in the elevator, catches it up to the 10th floor, gets out and takes the stairs up the remaining 5 floors to his apartment.

    WHY?

    Jimmy likes to run. Jimmy can slam dunk. Jimmy's not afraid of Hank's homosexuality.

    Too bad it's not raining, he wouldn't have to take the stairs if it was.

    Why be so negitive? Its a medium dufficulty riddle. Just for fun.
    Just because You heard something 50 yrs ago doesnt mean everyone heard it 50 years ago.

    Whats old to one person is new to another. Now thats playschool stuff man- not this puzzle.

    The music stopped. The man died. Why?

    O.K heres the answer.

    Jimmy is a dwarf! He travels up the elevator to the 10th floor but can't reach the 15th floor button. (because he's too short) So is forced to walk up the stairs the rest of the way.

    Well I thought it was a good puzzle...

    It is indeed.

    And when it rains he reach the 15'th buttom with his umbrella and don't have to walk the last 5 floors.

    By the way - His name is Jim, not Jimmy. He's a dwarf.

    His last request before he was killed was to have his favourite piece of music played. When it finished, he was executed.

    Yeah, that last post, that that was his last request; and then when the music stopped he was executed makes sense to me. But to me what's more fantastic is the picture of the woman flashing herself!... hehehehe.

    Is it still called flashing if your wearing clothes?

    All the buttons for the 11th floor and upwards could also have been broken on the elevator but the call button for the elevator still worked. Thus he could call it up to the 15th floor but couldn't get it to go up past the 10th from anywhere lower.

    Also the man who died could've been playing the music and suffered a heart attack thus the music stops then he dies.

    Just another couple of ideas
