Post Logic problem 5 - easier one
A man pushed his car. He stopped when he reached a hotel at which point he knew he was bankrupt. Why?

There was a sign on the Hotel's entrance saying 'YOU ARE BANKRUPT!' :rolleyes:

Or maybe his car then rolled away and fell off a cliff, and he had nothing left so was bankrupt. Or maybe he sold it at the hotel... for free...

Oh, man. I suck at these easy ones. :laughing2: Give us some hard ones!

I have no idea. Did the car hit the hotel, or something? :confused:

The problem is way too vague. Can we have some more information? Like a hint? :blush:

I had a book of Logic Puzzles like these, and the questions were so incredibly vague that you had to go to the back of the book to find the hints to even get on track to what kind of answer they wanted. There would be questions like "A man was listening to some music in his car, at which point he realized his wife was dead. How?" or something like that. :laughing2:

Update Ok.. Hmm.. I have a theory. :laughing2:
A burglar (whom is A Man) was burglaring another man who was in his car. The burglar killed the man, and pushed the car down a hill.. it stopped at a hotel. The deceased apparently... knew he was then bankrupt.. because the burglar got away with his credit cards.. and wallet. :laughing2: lol. That's my theory.

Update.. Again :laughing2: Here's another theory.
A man's junky car broke down as he was listening to the stock exchanging on the radio. He decided to get out and push the car to where he was staying, the Hotel. As he was pushing, he was listening to the stock market, and heard that all of his investments had just crashed! "Oh no!" He yelled. "I'm Bankrupt!!". lol
See, there can be way too many answers for this. We need a clue!! :laughing2:

Um.. ok.
Theory # 3
The "man" is actually a 7 year old boy. He set up a tiny village of toy houses, buildings, and hotels in his room one night. He's pushing his tiny red toy Porsche, when all of a sudden, as he reaches the hotel, he realizes that since he is only 7, he has no money to his name! "Oh no!" the boy yelled. "I'm bankwupt!"


:laughing2:

Oh! I just thought of another one. :laughing2: Theory # 4
A grown man is playing dolls at his grandmother's house. He's set up "Barbie's Wonderland Hotel", along with several other nifty hot spots. He places his newly bought Ken doll into his little red corvette toy car. The man pushes Ken's car to the hotel... The Ken doll realizes that he is bankrupt... because... well.. he doesn't have any money. :laughing2:

lol

the guy spent all his money on the car without the motor and pushed it. he stopped at the hotel bcuz the prices on the sign outside the door for a room. he then realized he spent all his money on a car without a motor.

The size of the car is around a quarter(you know $.25)

Uh, he realized that having a car with no motor and the size of a quarter wasnt really doing anything for him, so then he goes to a carp dealership and gets a real car, and their like, " Do you want any insurance?" And he said, " No thank you, I am too cool for that" Then he gets in his car, and thinks he looks soo cool and it starts to fall apart, in the size of quarters ( see how I included that in there? Clever huh? :smile:) So then he goes to the hotel and by then his car is the size of a quarter again..and he realizes he is bankrupt,, because he didnt get insurance.... :laughing2: Hey, it could work.
