Lateral Thinking Question Of The Day- A man walked to the top of a hill carrying a blanket. Over 100 people died because of this. Why? They didn’t die of suffocation, the blanket was clean to start with but became very dirty, neither the man or the blanket carried any diseases, and it was warm work.

    Use blanket to send smoke signal.
    Message say: COME HEAP BIG SUMMIT MEETING.

    The guy was walking up the steep mountain with the blanket, and behind him were two side by side, and behind those two were three side by side joining the others. They were singing and climbing the mountain. Others soon joined. Soon one hundred were getting high.

    But the first guy tripped on the blanket’s corner and fell back, knocking back two who fell on the three. Soon all were falling down the steep slope.

    We thought all were dead, but soon they ALL jumped up and re=started singing and went up the mountain again!!! (but without the blanket)

    Because they were not carrying blanket and it was cold out there, and the man who did not die was carrying blanket, so he survived

  4. 4. Wizard of Oz Said:

    So what’s the answer?

  5. 5. Torsionwire Said:

    Is this anything to do with Walking Blanket Woman, who reputedly killed General Custer at the battle of Little Bighorn?

    He was signalling an air strike or some military action on a some village near that hill.

  7. 7. Naomi Sheumaker Said:

    Possible the logical awnser is that the hill was very tall, and when they all got to the top, they lost air beacuse they where to high in the atmosphere
