How should people respond if they know the answer? it wouldn't make sense for 30 people to say the answer for number 3 (which i know by the way), and no one responding to the answer of #1.

Are we going by the rules of prose or poetry here? Because if it's not prose then this would make a poem that is perfectly punctuated:

While John
had had
Had...

Phil had had
Had.
Had had Had.
Had.

Had had had...
the best effect
on the
teacher

I spent so much time on Lubcha's orginial question I missed the fun on Boeing 757fan's question. I knew the answers to those two as well.

A man lives at the top floor of a 40-story building and goes down to the first floor to get to work. Everyday when he comes home, he goes up to the 20th floor and goes up the stairs the rest of the way.

Why does he do this?

A man is found shot dead in his car. There is no gun in the car. All the windows were up and all the doors were closed and locked. There was no bullet hole on any part of the car. How could he have been shot?

This one's an "oldie but a goodie"

You arrive at a fork in the road. To the left is Truthville, to the right is Falseburg. The people in Truthville only speak the truth (this is obviously made up), and the people from Falseburg LIE. There is no sign to tell you which direction is to each city, but there is a man from each city at the fork. You can only ask them one question to find out how to get to Truthville.

There are only 2 questions that i know that will get you going in the right way.

while john had had "had", phil had had "had had". "Had had" had had the best effect on the teacher.

here's another one:
read this statement out loud and see if you catch the problem:

i pledge allegiance to the
the flag of the united states of
