Hey there, Forums!

I have a new game for you!

It's called "Questions with Holes."

Here is a basic explanation and the basic rules.

Rules:
Spoiler:
Pretend you are a murder investigator, trying to find out what happened to the deceased.

Rule #1: You can only ask "yes" or "no" questions.
Rule #2: I will only answer "yes", "no", "irrelevant", or any combination of the three.
Rule #3: If you know the answer, wait until everyone else gets really close to where you are in the riddle before publicly posting your answer.
Rule #4: If you know towards the beginning (before everyone else), send me a PM telling me the answer. I will tell you if you are right or wrong. If wrong, too bad, so sad.
Rule #5: Don't give everyone the advantage of process of elimination. If your guess is wrong, Don't go telling everyone (for example) "ITS NOT A CAR!" ... or... something stupid like that. It's mean, and it takes away everyone else's fun.
Rule #6: If your guess is correct (and nobody else has guessed correctly before you on that riddle), you get a :D prize! :D (I won't tell what it is until someone wins one!)
Rule #7: ONE (1) RIDDLE AT A TIME! I really don't feel like having to answer a million riddles at a time.

And that is all... WAIT.
One more rule!

Finally, Rule #8: You can submit a new riddle to me if we run out!
Just include this symbol in the subject title:
β
(if you can't see the above symbol, just include the letters D, E, R, and F [in capitals] in the subject title.)

Alright! our first riddle is:

"A person EDIT: 'being' is floating in a pool of liquid."


That is all you get, so start asking questions!

Did the deceased simply fall into a body of water?

/sounds like the natural explanation to me.

Is the deceased a resident of Hinamizawa, and does he have any connections to Mion Sonozaki?

Alternate question: Has Murasa/Nitori/any of the native Gensokyo gods had a bad day today? Because drownination typically ensues.

NARG!!
FINALLY back after a literal MONTH of abscence.
My internet is SO dumb.
Now to answer your questions.

Quote originally posted by Zeffy:

...
Too many topics, so, it's classified as irrelevant.

Quote originally posted by Pokestick, good times.:

Nope!

Quote originally posted by Shanghai Alice:

... Ok.
First of all, that is TOTALLY irrelevant.
Second of all, if you're talking about Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, then
I truly... have.. no idea.

Ok, none of yuns is even close yet, and you can ask stupid questions THAT RELATE TO THE TOPIC AT HAND, thank you.

EDIT: okay, tiny hint for yunz.
The deceased's species was never specified.
(b^.^)b

Really, now?

Quote originally posted by 007manyo:
"A person is floating in a pool of liquid."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Person

In particular:
Quote:
A person is most broadly defined as any individual self-conscious or rational being, or any entity having rights and duties; or often more narrowly defined as an individual human being in particular.
Now, all animal rights arguments aside (Fido is not a person too...), I know of no other beings that are on the same level as humans, barring aliens and youkai. Any animals speculated to be near our intelligence are unable to face moral dilemmas.

Therefore, by use of the word "person", you are practically saying "human/alien/other fictional being."

So, therefore, I ask...

Is the deceased an alien, or any currently fictional being?

Whoops, did I say that?
screwed that up pretty bad...
changing... done~
and no, the "being" is not an alien or other fictional being.

Apparently, that's too short...

Is the pool of liquid harmful to a typical human if ingested in substantial quantity?

(For example, poison, urine, alcohol, etc.)

I don't get you, at all. Are we supposed to not know any plot twists? (yes, this is my current question)

It's not harmful, but it can make you nauseous...

Is the liquid commonly found as a household good?/Is the liquid chlorine?

Something died in a hot tub, if it is...

sorry for that Cheshire Cat moment.
no, plot twists are not to be TOLD by me, but YOU have to figure them out.
:D

first: yes.
second: no.
third: no, nothing died in a hot tub.

Hint #2: this is a truly foul hint.
(by the way, that was the hint. try to find some subliminal meaning, or something.)

(b^.^)b
EDIT: foul. think of it as a typo.
