Man in ScrubsSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man lies in a field, dead. He is wearing scrubs and has a large hole in his chest. How did he die?
HintThe man had previously had a surgical implant.
AnswerThe man is lying in the magnetic field of an MRI machine. The strong magnetic field ripped the man's pacemaker (surgical implant), which the doctor overlooked, out of his chest. Believe it or not, this has actually happened multiple times.
