Logic Puzzle 24

Recommended Posts

i do believe anyone is allowed to post these, so here's a funny one:

 

Rules:

1. You may only ask binary or dichotomous questions (yes/no, true/false, or others that only have two possibilities)

2. If you've heard the puzzle before or figure it out really early, please don't ruin it for others. Sit it out and wait for another. PM me if you have questions about this or seek personal validation.

 

 

If it hadn't have been for that horse, i never would have gone to college.

Are we allowed to start new puzzles, or should we wait a few days to see if he follows up?

To avoid confusion, there should not be too many going on simultaneously, but I see nothing wrong with two or three at once if they are dissimilar.
