A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

Let us start with the assumption that the husband dies after being hung. Death in medical terms is defined as a gradual systemic shutdown followed by an absence of criteria that define life. Criteria that define life include movement. Now since the wife and the husband dine together after the husband had been hung, he exhibits movement, thus exhibiting life.This contradicts our assumption that the husband died after being hung since he has exhibited at-least one criteria that defines life. Hence we can derive either of the following two conclusions: 1) the husband didn't die despite being hung <or> 2) the husband was either a cyborg or an extra terrestrial. Mostly the answer lies in option 2.

The woman was taking a picture of her husband. In the early 1900's this process of producing a photo from a film which is soaked at a solution was popular and it only through this process that you'll obtain your photo. It is then hung and after a while your photo is finished.

That question is grammatically incorrect, how could a photo, shot by a camera, is referred to 'him' in the sentece : "Then she holds him under water..." and "... She hangs him"

Maybe she is in deep sleep

just simple...a woman just shoots her husband ,this doesnot mean that her husband died .It can also be possible that the bullet in gun is empty

Now here is something to think about: most children in today's digital world wouldn't have any use for this knowledge anymore, and thus not be privy to the cleverness o_O

Indeed her husband is superman and she was trying to help him with something he got struck into his wind pipe.

Maybe she was doing all this in her dreams(i.e.,while asleep),and woke up and went to dine.

It may also be that she shoots him with a baby toy,holds him under water while he is wearing an oxygen mask,and then hangs him with a cloth hanger on his shirt or coat.

she shot him but he was wearing something to defend him then she held him under water with oxygen to breath then she hanged him while he was standing on a chair so he didn't die and finally they went to dinner

well of course she "shoots" in the sense that she records his footage in camera..now she would take the pic and put it in water and for drying up she would "hang" the pic on some line or something. After that they can have the awesome dinner
