Riddle

I read this somewhere and thought it was interesting so I figure I'll share with the class:

A woman's mother dies and at the funeral she sees a man she is instantly attracted to. She begins talking with him and falls in love with the man right then and there. Unexpectedly, he leaves before the woman can get his name or any contact information. A few days later the woman kills her own sister. Why?


First correct answer wins 100,000 shares of Bear Stearns stock!

This thread is classic of how mental midgets also know that light bulbs are destroyed by powering on and that Saddam had WMDs. Not one number provided. So as the sister has attended the same funeral? According to the logic already posted, these events are related?

No wonder 70% of Americans knew Saddam had WMDs - also proven by ignoring numbers. No wonder everyone 'knows' powering on a light bulb off and on causes bulb failure. No wonder so many knew that conveyor belt underneath an airplance affected its takeoff.

Based upon numbers posted, a responsible poster could not even speculate an answer.

She's a nutjob who thinks the man will show up at her sister's funeral.

sorry for the delayed response,

Blue got it. I read this was one of several questions they give to "psychopaths" to determine just how crazy they are. Supposedly crazy people tend to get this easily. Blue, I'm hoping you've heard it before...

I figure who the psychopaths are based on how creeped out I feel during the interview.

You can't question them to figure it out, because they know the "right" answers to the questions.

You're not outed on The Cellar until you whip your titties out.

Well, that's not going to happen of course. Thanks for ruining my insanity mystique moment, FLINT.
