Puzzle time

For those who want some slightly more brain-stretching conversation...

I'll start.

You are in a house. All four walls face south. A bear walks past your window. What colour is that bear?

Answer the problem or post a new one, whatever you want, just felt we needed something a bit interesting? Shoot me if you don't.

    I don't see how you can tell the colour of the bear from that...but maybe I'm just thick :)

    Yeah but if you think about the first part of the question it might be easier?

    PD, post the answer if you want, and post a new puzzle if you can think of one!

    I am indeed slow...where the hell can all walls face south? that'd be a wall or something, not a house, cos in a house all four walls have to face south...unless you're in the north pole?? white?? :eek2:

    Ok a harder, more obscure one. Think hard and think random, perhaps.

    A man is found lying dead in a field. He is completely naked. There are no footprints or markings anywhere around him for several miles. The only clue is a piece of straw held in his right hand. How did he die?

    Happy thinking.

    Well if the house was directly on the south pole then all the walls would face towards that, and if you saw a bear then it would be a polar bear and therefore white.
    Am I right?

    Hey I'll have you know I didn't read any of the answers so I answered it by myself. :p

    And I'm sure this was one:
    A man was found dead on the floor of a forest after a fire wearing a snorkel. How did he get there and how did he die?

    Kinda obvious but the other one reminded me of this. hmm

    You've probably heard this one but a guy is dead and hanging by a rope in a room, the room has no chairs or objects of any type that the person could have climbed on to. The person did not drop from about. How did they do it?

    And there's a pool of water under him too? Is that the same one?

    The man was diving in the sea and the helicopter came to pick p water to put the forest fire out, he got picked up by mistake by the helicopter and died. He was then dropped from the helicopter when it let the water out.
