    Stories with holes 3

    A man gets in his car and starts to drive. He turns on the radio, pulls the car off to the side of the road, gets out a gun, and shoots himself.

    (Haha. Just to be a pain in the ***, I should've stated this one: "When the music started, he died." )

    Did he kill himself because of the music on the radio (something really annoying like Sum41, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne etc)?
    There once was a scotsman named Drew
    Who put too much wine in his stew
    He felt a bit drunk
    And fell off his bunk
    And landed smack into his shoe

    Is the radio relevant?
    Did he turn on his radio for some other reason than listening to it?
    Did he plan to kill himself before he started to drive?
    Were there any other people there when he shot himself?
    Had he done anything relevant before he started to drive?
    Did he do anything relevant while driving except for turning on the radio?
    Did he kill himself because of the radio?
    Did he turn on the radio because he wanted to kill himself?
    Did he do anything relevant after stopping his car (besides suicide, of course)?
    Did he mean to kill himself?
    If you believe even a half of this post, you are severely mistaken.

    He shot himself because of what he heard on the radio.

    He did not kill himself because the music sucked so much that it made his soul cry.

    It might have been a nice car. Doesn't matter.
    There was not music on the radio.
    He may or may not have had a permit for the gun. Doesn't matter.
    There were no other cars on the road.
    He was alone in the car.
    Hehehe! Yes, he had all his clothing on.

    No, he was not bankrupt.
    Umm... he just pulled off the road. Far enough off not to get hit if another car came along I guess. I don't know much about shoulders...
    I don't think it was illegal to pull over, but no, it was not a designated spot for stopping.
    I assume he had a morgage (that pretty much just means you own a house and are still paying for it, right?) but it doesn't really matter.
    This was at night.
    He owned the car.
    He did have a drivers license.

    The radio is very relevant.
    Yes, he turned the radio on for a reason other than wanting to listen to the radio.
    He did not plan to kill himself before he started to drive.
    He was alone when he shot himself.
    Yes, he had done something relevant before starting to drive.
    He did nothing in while in the car that was not mentioned in the original story.
    He killed himself because of the radio, he did not turn the radio on because he wanted to kill himself.
    Nothing other than his suicide happened after he stopped the car.
    When he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, it was with the intention of killing himself (if that's what you meant by your last question).

    The radio did not give him news of a death in the family.

    Um... Michael Jackson will not be making an appearance in this story.
    Yes, he was a criminal who was found out.
    He was not the victim of a crime for which the criminal was released......
    It's hard to say if he was a VIP. Depends on the scope I suppose...
    He was not listening to the news.

    (That is a REALLY fantastic set of questions, Nightshade...)

    Oh yes! On both counts. Where he was coming from and where he was going are both important.

    Quote Originally Posted by Basil

    No, he was not being persued. Nor was anyone looking for him......

    Those are all really great questions, actually. Especially considered all together. Muahahaha!

    Did he kill himself out of shame?
    Depression?
    For someone else's well-being?
    Because there was a possible torture ahead and he didn't want to suffer?
    Out of panic?
    Or out of oh-my-god-what-have-i-done-feeling?

    Is the type of his crime relevant?
    Was it murder?
    Theft?
    Raping?
    Robbery?
    Arson?
    Selling drugs?
    Or some small crime like speeding or crossing the road in the wrong place?

    Was he driving to some other person's place?
    Is the time of the suicide relevant?
    Was there a misunderstanding?

    Did he turn on the radio so that there would be noise to hide/conceal some other noise/thing?
    Did he turn on the radio to relax?

    Recap
    An exposed criminal who may have been a VIP does somthing relevant then gets in his car at night and drives from somwhere relevant to somwhere relevant- without the intention of suicide.
    He was not persued and was alone in the car and there are no other cars on the rode.
    He turned on the radio and somthing he heard made him pull up and comitt suicide.
    It was not the news and not music.


    Thats it I think?
    _________________________________________________
    Was he a war criminal?
    Was it a normal radio?
    Was it similar to a police radio?

    He did not kill himself out of shame, nor depression, nor for someone else's well-being. The last three things you mention - to avoid torture, because of panic, or because of an oh-my-God-what-have-I-done feeling are a bit more difficult to answer. It's hard to say *exactly* what was going through his head when he decided to do it, but any of these could have been possible.

    The type of crime is relevant: It was murder. It was not also any of the other things you mentioned.

    He was not driving to another person's home, if that's what you meant.
    The *absolute* time of the suicide is not relevant.
    There were no misunderstandings.
    He did not turn on the radio to conceal another noise, nor did he turn it on to relax.

    Nice recap, Nightshade! Thanks. The only thing you forgot is that there is a crime involved, and we now know that it is murder.
