question about common sense

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. Priyankar Kumar · 4 years, 4 months ago

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. Timothy Paul Picar · 4 years, 4 months ago

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" Rionaldi Chandraseta · 4 years, 4 months ago

it was film shooting Imran Bokhari · 4 years, 4 months ago

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 Lucky Kaul · 4 years, 4 months ago

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 Ahmed Kaito · 4 years, 4 months ago

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. Nishit Goyal · 4 years, 4 months ago
