As of yet I'm not sure of the answer myself! There is a room with no doors, no windows, nothing and a man is hung from the celing and a puddle of water is on the floor. How did he die? Read More

Stood on ice

Doh beat me to it :x

there wasn't even a moment of hesitation there :-D

You have to wonder about the no doors though; must have beamed in. So that means it was a bit strange, as he might as well have just dissociated his particles during transmission.

Hmmmm

I actually think your answer is more plausable

Do you mean wet himself? lol

Usually the puzzle says the door was locked from the inside

More that he would actually be a pool of his own particles, or alternatively spread through the universe, but your version is quite funny.:-D

OMG! Hubby said you were right! Well done you! I never even thought of that!:) He could have told me the answer:oops:

Thank you. :thumbsup:

if there were no doors or windows he just walked through the gap - it doesnt say it was just 4 walls

If it is a full room, then he either built the room himself from the inside or he was placed on the block of ice, noose around his neck, and the room was built around him.

I think it was one of those ... existential rooms...

Like the box with the cat inside.

"Suppose that a cat is locked in a box with a bottle of poisonous gas that will break if a device connected to it registers that an atom in a radioactive substance in the box decays. The chance of decaying in the next hour is fifty–fifty. If the bottle breaks, the cat will be killed. According to quantum mechanics, the cat, gas, and device form a superposition of states that is indeterminate until a measurement or an observation is made. For this reason, the issue of the cat's being alive or being dead in the box is indeterminate until we look inside the box. Although it sounds paradoxical, before we look it is not true that the cat is alive and it is not true that the cat is dead. "


Schrodinger's Cat.

So.... if the man is inside the room with no doors and windows... and we cannot see him.

Is he alive? Is he dead? Is he dead not until we open the room? What if he dies at the moment we open the room? Did we cause his death by opening the room?

But that wasnt the question, question was how did he die? :thumbsup:

The gap opens many possibilites - the man walked in, hanged himself and spilt the remainder of the refreshing glass of water he had placed next to the chair. The chair and the glass of water weren't mentioned in the description, but what the heck - niether was the gap.

Another gap possiblity - he was murdered by a homicidal snowman.

His particles dissociated = dead :w00t:

If there was no roof:
The room was built first and he was dangled by a noose from a crane then placed on a huge block of ice which mainly sublimated in the hot dry atmosphere, leaving him in the end hanged but slumped next to the small remaining water puddle.

We know that superposition actually occurs at the subatomic level, because there are observable effects of interference, in which a single particle is demonstrated to be in multiple locations simultaneously. What that fact implies about the nature of reality on the observable level (cats, for example, as opposed to electrons) is one of the stickiest areas of quantum physics. Schrödinger himself is rumored to have said, later in life, that he wished he had never met that cat.

Indeed, we cannot be sure of the death until measurements have been taken. Can we describe the man's state simply in terms of probability?
In the possibilty of an infinity of universes, which explanation is more probable in which universe?
At which point I reckon I need a physicist!! ( Well I have one but he's busy!!)

i reckon he died from strangulation or his neck snapped (cos it states he was hung - so thats why i reckon he died in one of my ways)
