Help me solve this riddle everybody please. Thank you so much.Emotion: smile
Romeo and Juliet are found dead on the floor in a bedroom. When they were discovered, there were pieces of glass and some water on the flomeo and Julor. The only furniture in the room is a shelf and a bed. The house is in a remote location, away from everything except for the nearby railway track. What caused the death of Roiet?

Flomeo? Julor? Roiet?:S You made a salad of names!:P

Welcome to the forums, by the way!
Maybe vibrations due to a train, which made a vase fall off the shelf and hit them.
But that's a stupid, old-fashioned solution. No one dies in their bedroom that way today. Romeo and Juliet must have died from an overdose of cocaine. That's more likely.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I am very sorry about my mistake. It is a typing problem.
Kooyeen has the vibration part right. They're fish.
(And I think little Ro and Meo and Ju, Li, and Et may well the sorry result of "broken glass meets fish".)

Grammar GeekKooyeen has the vibration part right. They're fish.
I didn't think of that. You are right, they could be fish. I thought a vase full of water hit them (humans) on the head. But then I thought... naaaah, it must have been cocaine.
Strictly speaking, this kind of riddle is meant to be solved by question and answer, where only yes/no answers and plentiful liquor are permitted. Thus:

Romeo and Juliet are found dead on the floor. What happened?

— Um...is there anything else on the floor? <swig>

Yes. <swig>

— Is it a bag of chips? <swig>

No. <swig>

etc., etc.
(Of course, it's not obligatory to take a <swig> after each response; but it helps.)

Is that called "lateral thinking", or someting like that?
Those games are fun, but you can't play alone. I have some of those, they are in Italian, maybe I could translate them to English so we can play... Some of them are funny, LOL
