Can you explain again what we're trying to figure out please? I'm kind of lost lol. In the beginning you said

How did this happen?/What happened?

We know she killed herself (takes care of the what happened) but I'm pretty sure the whole "she killed herself" thing takes care of the "how did this happen?". Sort of.

On just long enough to post this.

Heh. Well. ...

What you still don't have is the why she screamed in response to the phone ringing, which the way she killed herself is tied into.

OFF TOPIC

The idea of this game is not to find out what happened (aka "she killed herself"), but to find out a chain of events that led to the situation the quizmster described. So finding out that she killed herself is not enough, it is just one piece. The goal is to find out exactly what actions lead to the event that is described. That includes not only the what but also the how and why.

Of course you could say: She wanted to kill herself and that lead to the phone ringing a woman screaming and red light flasching, but it does not illuminate what events really led to that result.

Thanks to both of you for clarifying. =]

So....did the woman kill herself by use of the phone? (like she electrocuted herself in a bathtub or something but needed the phone call to set the "spark"?)

Question 1: So....did the woman kill herself by use of the phone? (like she electrocuted herself in a bathtub or something but needed the phone call to set the "spark"?)

Answer: No, she did not kill herself using the phone.

Hey, I'm new to this forum. Do I need to sign up?

Off of off topic...?:

Did the woman scream after hearing the voicemail which turned out to be someone who wanted her friendship, but she screamed so loud she...popped a blood vessel and died? xD

@Fan 'o Fiction: Lime directs you to the "Introduce Yourself!" thread to well, introduce yourself. Lime supposes that's the only "signing up" you need to do other than read and obey the rules of each thread as they appear in the first post of each thread. XD

You'll get a proper welcome in the Introduce Yourself thread. Yep.

CLOSED - due to long time and not solved. Euro, please enlighten us what happened in your situation.

NEW SITUATION:

A man runs into a building and the front portal closed, trapping him inside.

How did this happen? (The difficulty here is not what happened as this is quite clear, but rather how the man ended up like this)

lol. Tweet, Net likes dead people situations, so Lime can answer your question: yes, he's dead...

...

right, Net?

-- END OFF TOPIC --

Question: was the man being chased into the building?

4/12/2009 #311
UndeadWithoutCoffee

UPDATE:

Question 1: Was anyone dead?

Answer: Well there are a lot of dead people on this planet. But neither of them played a part of any size in this situation!

Question 2: was the man being chased into the building?

Answer: Yes he was chased with the purpose to catch him. But to enter said building was his idea.

4/12/2009 #312

Question: is the building of any significance to the situation?

4/12/2009 #313
moreorlessdeleted

where there people inside the building waiting to help/rescue him?

4/12/2009 #314
UndeadWithoutCoffee

Update:

Question 1: is the building of any significance to the situation?

Answer: Well yes and no. Yes: It stopped him running away, but it will not tell you anything unless you find out why he was running away and why he ran into that building, and what that building is.

Question 2: where there people inside the building waiting to help/rescue him?

Answer: There were people inside, as someone of them obviously triggered the closing of the front portal in some way.

Is the building located in a heavily populated area where people will notice him if he stood at the edge of the roof ready to jump (suicide act)?

Update:

Question 1: Is the building located in a heavily populated area where people will notice him if he stood at the edge of the roof ready to jump (suicide act)?

Answer: I´d say it wasn´t in the middle of a huge town (as in city center of NY or so), but it was not a ghost city either. So I´d say well populated.

What do you mean by front 'portal'? Like a door?

Update:

Question 1: What do you mean by front 'portal'? Like a door?

Answer: Yeah but bigger/wider as a normal door. It´s not like the front door of a family home.

Is he running from the law?

UndeadWithoutCoffee

Update:

Question 1: Is he running from the law?

Answer: Yep ;)

But you have to give me some more in order to solve this: What was the building, why was he running and why was he trapped inside?

4/15/2009 #325
Lime-Cat

Is he running from the law, ran into a police/law enforcement building and subsequently locked up in prison? I don't know why he is running though...traffic violation? lol.

4/15/2009 #326
UndeadWithoutCoffee

Update: Okay Lime I will consider it solved: The man ran away from the law, he was a escapee from a local prison and ran away. Of course he was instantly followed by the police to capture him again. At some point he took a turn and ran into a building he thought was a mall. He was completely unaware that he was entering a high security prison. The joyful officers took their chance and closed the door behind the man and thus the escape was ended very quickly.

Just as a funny remark: This really happened. So did the incident with the clad diver in the burned forest. I found both stories in a book.

COSED

Hey. Sorry. My computer hasn't been working at all the past few days. This is the first time I've been back on.

Okay. So the woman had no friends, she was lonely. She decided to kill herself by jumping out of her hotel window. Just as she jumped, she heard the phone rang. She screamed, because she thought no one would ever call her and now that someone had she was going to die. Of course, the red light flashing was the answering machine with a message.

Now forgive me for not asking a Yes/No-Question, but could you explaing what drinkin with poise means? I am not a native english and I am at a loss what it means in my language, so would you mind describing that in other words?
