Inquiries Game: Stan's heart attack
 
This one is probably little harder that the "I can't sleep" one. Get the rest of the story by asking yes or no questions:

Stan is driving his flatbed truck loaded with construction materials headed to a jobsite. It's a bright, clear day, traffic is pretty light, and fast. He's going south on a six lane stretch of I-5, doing 60 mph where most people are driving 70 or more, so a lot of other vehicles are passing him. Suddenly, he hears a sound like thunder, looks out the driver's window of his truck, has a heart attack and dies. Why?

no motor? 04-17-20 04:48 PM

The first sign of a heart attack is usually death, so I'd guess lifestyle choices would be the cause.

Was it just his time to go?

Lascauxcaveman 04-17-20 08:05 PM

No on both. OK, Stan was fat (like most of us) and 60 years old, but something specific triggered his coronary.

A corenary blockage doesn't always lead to instant death, was there a vehicle that plowed into him....

Did he die of the heart attack?

Is Stan hauling something round and heavy?

Struck by a bolt out of the blue.

Nope. But He probably plowed into something after he died :( Irrelevant to this inquiry.

Yes. That's been established. (OK, the causal relationship wasn't explicitly stated in the original story; but yeah) We are trying to figure out what triggered it.

No. But that's a good line of questioning to expand on. ;)

308jerry 04-19-20 05:59 AM

Hez hauling cocaine, yea that's what hez hauling.....
I snorted cocaine once (or twice ) and I about had a heart attack and died :innocent:

Is Stan properly operating his vehicle in the right lane?

Did Stans load become unsecured?

Yes to both.

A car collided with the back of his rig. The construction materials, when struck, self-assembled into a house, with the car coming to rest in the garage bay nearest the door. Stan's heart attack was caused by his astonishment

People can actually be stressed to a heart attack but it doesn't happen instantly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takotsubo_cardiomyopathy Most of them are clogged coronaries or drugs

Here in CA the speed limit for trucks is 10-15 mph lower than for cars. Truckers tend to obey run closer to their speed limit while car drivers are all over the place, so at times of high traffic, a truck in the right lane produces a blockage in the left too as slower drivers slowly pass the truck and faster drivers stack up.

Was Stan's last name "Shatner"?

I've decided that this tactic is generally stupid, and self-defeating. May it die an ignominious death.

Nope. But he was hauling construction materials, as mentioned in the original story.

...

Nope. It was a lot less unlikely than that.

Clue #1 - Just before he heard a sound like thunder, he briefly noticed in his rearview mirror a guy on Harley coming up behind him. But didn't really think much of it. After all, he's on the road a lot; he sees a lot of Harleys out there on the freeway. Or it could have been a Suzuki, Yamaha, whatever.

Is stan close to Tijuana?
