It’s me again……


“Anyone, who on March 20, shopped at Miller General Store, report to Mr. Ingel in the Principal’s office immediately.”

If you were to hear this over the pager after school on March 21, you wouldn't take the time to think anything of it, would you? But let’s say you would. Could you figure out what that announcement was all about? There is a most likely answer, and it can be theoretically solved, using safe assumptions and deductions. Your job is to find out why the person/s were called down. Get as specific as possible. I doubt anybody will have the same conclusion, which is part of why I have posted this. I want to see what people come up with. This is borderline trolling, but I do not have that intention.

HINTS BELOW

    *!FOR THIS PROBLEM, ASSUME OUR SCHOOL HAS UNIFORMS!

    *Miller General Store is run by an elderly couple.

    *In this scenario, school goes on all year 'round, for the riddle's sake. I will edit the quote every day, so pay close attention to the date.


If, for some reason, you don't want people to see your theory, PM me. I am active on Warlight. too active. I will get back to you.

NO TRYING TO FIND THE ANSWER ON THE INTERNET!





There is no way any of you will be able to get this one right. Fact.

Got a few ideas, but I'm going to wait until the date changes a few times before guessing.

I'm really sorry for diverging from the topic at hand, and I'll try not to derail. But what the heck happened to MSF anyways? I've noticed a lot of their active members have switched clans and I haven't seen Bane anywhere on the forums for awhile.

@Smedley

Yeah, I thought I'd give the off-topic forum a go at it. btw, you used to be Tupac, right?

@Eklipse

Bane disappeared from Warlight. He hasn't been seen for over a month. and with him went the activeness of the clan. It's sad, really. MSF was actually a sort of family to me, and for all we know, Bane could have died in real life. We just collapsed. The notable active members decided to spread their wings and fly the coop. It stinks, I placed second in a clan tourney we held, and the top three were to have their names become names of bonuses in the MSF map. Oh, well.

Simple. Everybody had on clothes that were't suitable for the school dress code on their bodies. They could have just gotten back from swimming. The elderly couple saw this and decided to call the school because that is what elderly couples do.

To clarify, having school all year 'round should not be relevant. It is just to prevent people from saying "there's no school during summer." and stuff like that.

Here's my theory:

- Miller General Store is closed on July 19 (elderly couple takes Saturday off; they don't really need the money, they're just doing this so they can cope with their retirement).

- Mr. Ingel isn't the name of the principal.

The PA announcement is being made to catch someone, an impostor who doen't go to the school but somehow snuck in. Someone who's not from the same part of the country. That's why the announcer even bothered to put a name in there- because they wanted to catch someone who didn't know what had happened.

They'd encountered this imposter earlier, and he/she'd claimed to have shopped at the store on Saturday (when it's closed) so that's what tipped them off.

In the balance hangs the life of every student in the school.

An interesting theory. But I have two questions.

1) Why do you think the imposter snuck in after school?

2) Who then was on the announcer? The police, maybe?

This could actually work given what little information you have to go off of, but pay attention to the text when I edit it after 12:00am EST (about one hour from now). Now that I think about it, there is a way to phrase the riddle without having to change the date, but whatever.

I'll post a comment when I edit.

1) The imposter doesn't know when school ends. They're using that place as a hideout.

2) The police or anyone else capable of capturing the imposter.

Oh, one more question. Why would the imposter obey the announcement?

They probably won't. The announcement was made as a last-ditch attempt before the SWAT team was brought in.

Since it would take a while to figure out (a while I unfortunately don't have- vacation in 4 days), is the date really just "yesterday"?

Darth Darth Binks

Yes. The original context of the riddle is that the day you hear the announcement, it is a weekday, as was the previous day, but I had trouble putting that into words without making it sound confusing.

What it is getting at is, why doesn't the person just say "yesterday?"

I reckon:
mr. engel is a spy, who wants to kill you. He is in league with the principal as in the future you will become a major leader... so he has been sent back in time to kill you before hand...
(oops just copied terminator)
I reckon part two:
That you have something in your posession that he wants, my pre...
(not even going there)
In all seriousness I think that there is a darker side to this one.
