Theory: somebody put a bullet in the muffin and the guy was in a jail cell, deciding that suicide was better than his eventual punishment.
NO to your theory

Did the medical condition have an impact on his motivation (e.g. he committed suicide because he was depressed, or just didn't want to live with his condition any more)?

He did not want to live with his condition anymore.


Did it have an impact on the WAY he committed suicide?

NO

Might a person without this condition have also committed suicide under similar circumstances?

YES. I mean, lots of people have shot themselves over the years, which is what I believe has been revealed to be the case here.

Would such a person have eaten half a muffin first?

OK, I think this case is unique or would be if this is not a true story.

I may reveal the answer tonight. It's not my favorite and may just be a groaner for you guys. Anyone have one for after this one?

Did the man bake the muffins himself?

Was the man severely malnourished?

Did the man feel free to go outside?

Was other food available, which the man would have accepted?

Was the man's mental disorder something like paranoia or OCD?

(I'm thinking, of course, of the famous mathematician Kurt Gödel's strange and bizarre death -- which, however, didn't involve any shooting.)

This puzzle isn't good enough to go on this long. I'm going to reveal because it really is not that great in my opinion.

SPOILER:
He loved buttered muffins, but they gave him severe indigestion. In his extreme desire to have them(to the point of crazy delusion), he decided to shoot himself and eat the muffins, knowing it would at least prevent him from suffering the indigestion. It killed him.


I know, not great. But there it is.

I'm sure I can find a (better) one, but does anyone else have a good one?

OK, I'll have a try at posing one:

If only the angry man had said something else, it would save $800 million a year.

What did he say?

Would it save the government $800 million?

Would is save the general public $800 million?

Was the money lost because someone else heard what the angry man said and took action as a result?

Would it save the government $800 million? No, though it would likely save the government some part of that amount.

Would is save the general public $800 million? Yes.

Was the money lost because someone else heard what the angry man said and took action as a result? Yes.

Was what the man said an expression of his anger? Yes.

Was what he said a declarative statement? Yes.

Was what he said an imperative? No.

Was what he said a question? No.

Was what he said a matter of fact? No.

Was what he said a matter of opinion? Yes, pretty much.

Was the angry man in a position of authority? Yes.

Was the angry man in a position of sufficient authority that he would ordinarily have control of hundreds of millions of dollars? No.

Was the angry man involved in politics? Yes.

Was the angry man involved in business? No.

Was he angry over a financial issue? Hmm, tricky. This is not how I would primarily characterize it, although finances were involved.

Was he angry over a health issue? No.

Was he angry because something needed repairing? No.

Was he angry over a relationship or family issue? Yes.

Was he angry because something was misplaced? No.

Was the statement by the angry man one that:

denied people access to something?
denied the use of something tangible?
denied intangible rights to something, like a copyright or patent?
claimed responsibility for something or someone?
disclaimed responsibility for something or someone?
gave access or rights to something?

Is the $800 million an ongoing expense every year, in perpetuity? Does it vary? Does it vary with inflation? Does it vary with population? If it varies, does it consistently increase, or decrease, or is not consistent in that way?

No to all of these.

Is the $800 million an ongoing expense every year, in perpetuity? Yes (but with variance in the exact amount, see below).

Does it vary? Yes.

Does it vary with inflation? Probably.

Does it vary with population? Most likely yes.

If it varies, does it consistently increase, or decrease, or is not consistent in that way? It is not consistent.

Did this involve PBS funding?

Did it involve Fred Rogers?

I'm shooting for the time Fred Rogers saved PBS with his plea to congress.

Note: I'm going to assume the "this" in the next couple of questions refers specifically to the $800 million, and answer accordingly. Without giving too much away, I can anticipate some additional situations where ambiguities are likely to arise. I'm going to make my answers as literally accurate as possible, according to how questions are actually phrased, but be aware that questions that are worded slightly differently may produce seemingly contradictory answers.

Is this to do with paying off instalments or interest on a debt? No.

Is this an expense incurred as the result of war? No.

Was the angry man Hitler? No.

Recap time?

The angry man was (more or less) a real man. He was in a position of authority, though not one where he would normally have control of hundreds of millions of dollars. He was involved in politics. He was not involved in business. He was not American, Asian, president of the USA, or Donald Trump. He was not the representative of his country. He was European, but not from Russia, Germany, or a Soviet bloc country. He was not Hitler. He did not take off his shoe and pound it on a table. He did not survive for more than a year after his statement.

He was not angry over a health issue, because something needed repairing, because something was misplaced, or because his co-workers and managers were incompetent idiots. He was angry over a matter that involved family or relationships and (to some extent) finance. He was angry at not being listened to.

The thing that he said was a declarative statement that expressed his anger, and primarily a matter of opinion rather than fact. It was not a question or an imperative. It was not a statement that denied people access to something, denied the use of something tangible, denied intangible rights to something, claimed or disclaimed responsibility for something, or gave access or rights to something. It was a threat, but not against an American. He was not speaking to a high-profile American, or to an American industrialist. He said it before 1930.

The loss of money is because somebody heard what the angry man said and took action as a result.

$800 million means 800 million US dollars. The loss of $800 million is borne by the general public, not a specific company or, primarily, the government (although the government may be paying part of it). It is an ongoing expense that fluctuates from year to year, in ways that are not consistent. Inflation and population have some effect on the fluctuation. The money is lost by Americans. It is not part of the cost of the US military, social security, government programs, or related to health care. The expense is not due to war or paying off installments or interest on a debt.

The situation does not involve PBS funding, Fred Rogers, or worn-out bills being recycled.

1770's-1930's: (Please tell me which decade you would say "yes" to) This is very difficult to answer. Some of the relevant events took place in the 1890s. Others did not take place during these years at all.

Did the angry man actually SAY the thing, verbally, with his mouth?
Did the angry man WRITE what he said?
Was what he said of a philosophical nature?
Did it have economic implications?
Was what he said a result of his anger?
If he hadn't been angry, would he still have said it?

Does this "more or less" real person have a real mouth that can make sounds in the real world?
Is the person a character in some sort of artistic work? (Fiction or nonfiction)
An automaton of some kind?
A role or title more than an individual holding the title?

Is the money that is lost spent on some kind of consumer good?
On some other kind of property?
On a service?

Heh, FINALLY someone followed up on the "more or less" answer!

Does this "more or less" real person have a real mouth that can make sounds in the real world? Yes.

Is the person a character in some sort of artistic work? (Fiction or nonfiction) Yes.

An automaton of some kind? No.

A role or title more than an individual holding the title? No.

Is the money that is lost spent on some kind of consumer good?
On some other kind of property?
On a service?

None of these is the primary cause of the loss, although some part of the loss may involve expenditures on some or all of these things.
