    He then carried the blocks into the tower, building a staircase to the top, stood on top with noose around his head and waited for the ice to melt.

    There is a cylindrical tower in the middle of the desert that is 40 feet high to the rafters. There are no stairs, in fact no visible way of getting to the top of the tower. The floor is sand, which is damp to the touch. Parked outside is a truck. The open load area is empty apart from a large canvas sheet which is white on one side and black on the other.

    A man is hanging, dead, from a 6 foot length of rope tied to the rafters.

    How did he commit suicide in this manner ?

    I'm quite chuffed that I eventually got it using a manually written version.

    8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
    Something is definitely fishy about the story. Dunhills didn't appear until 1907 and even than only in Dunhills private, single store. It took few years before they become internationally known. Pall Mall first appeared in 1899. A smoker knows this stuff.
    Not sure why I left milk in the quote. Milk was definitely around.

    Carry on.

    The houses from left to right are:

    Blue, Danish, Tea, Blends, Horses
    Red, British, Milk, Pall Mall, Birds
    Green, German, Coffee, Prince, Fish
    White, Swedish, Beer, Blue Master, Dogs

    I didn't use a search engine, but I did employ a common computer program. It wasn't necessary, but it did expedite the solution.
    Well done Mr. Snappy, but in real life:
    Danes-Prince
    Swedes-Blend
    Brits-? Pall Mall
    Germans-??
    Us Norskies- Used to be Blue Masters on serious occations like funerals, weddings and such, but rolling ones own from cut toenails, bell button leftovers and the strongest tobacco available would be the thing to do. Also called Tiedemans Karva Blad or Red Mixture.
    Dunhill, you must be freakin' jokin', and water? Yeah, right.

    ...probably someone who used to have "Bye, and thanks for all the fish" in their signature maybe ?

    I may be old...but my memory still works.
