The reason they did it was always the same.
They did it in three different places.
In the first place they were almost 100,000.
In the second they were almost 120,000.
In the third they were almost 110,000.
None of them did it in two different places.
The result was always almost the same.

they - human? other?
rel which order the numbers are in? (could it have been 100,000 - 110,000 then 120,000?)

100,000 - that many of "them" died? (for other two numbers, too) Or only three of "them" died?

None of them did it... - "it" means died?

The result - something about dying (the way of dying, the state of their bodies...) or something not connected to it?

rel which order the numbers are in? (could it have been 100,000 - 110,000 then 120,000?)no numerical order involved

100,000 - that many of "them" died? (for other two numbers, too) Or only three of "them" died? they are all still alive

None of them did it... - "it" means died? no

The result - something about dying (the way of dying, the state of their bodies...) or something not connected to it? none died

Are these humans perfectly ordinary? Are they a special group of people? This thing that they did--is it a common thing? Would we do it often? Once in a while? Never?
The "places" that are referred to--are they real, tangible locations? Do the numbers refer to the number of humans?

Sorry, I misread "died" instead of "did" :)

100,000 - that many of them "did"? (for other two numbers, too) Or only three of them "did"?

All three repetitions of "did it" mean the same?

Anything to do with rebellions?
The results were almost always the same meaning it was the same two timea and different once? It was slightly different each time, but genarally the same end result?
So we need to find who why and what?
Are the they's human? Age relevent? Gender relevent?

Are these humans perfectly ordinary? yes
Are they a special group of people? define special
This thing that they did--is it a common thing? yes

Once in a while? Never? read above
The "places" that are referred to--are they real, tangible locations? yes
Do the numbers refer to the number of humans? yes

100,000 - that many of them "did"? (for other two numbers, too) Or only three of them "did"? all of them did it, not only three
All three repetitions of "did it" mean the same? yes

Anything to do with rebellions? no
The results were almost always the same meaning it was the same two times and different once? no
It was slightly different each time, but genarally the same end result? it means exactly this

You did it 6 times -- is 6 times below the average? An average? Over the average?

The average years for doing it the first time -- less than five? 5--10? 10--15? 15--20? 20--30? 30--40? 40--50? 50--60? More?

'None of them did it in two different places.' means each time only these people did it?
But this specific group didn't do it on another ocasion, in a different place?

Is this thing they're doing attending a music performance?

The average years for doing it the first time -- less than five? 5--10? 10--15? 15--20? I would say this. I did it the first time at the age of 19 20--30? 30--40? 40--50? 50--60? More?

'None of them did it in two different places.' means each time only these people did it? yes
But this specific group didn't do it on another ocasion, in a different place? to make it clear: all people from group A did it in place A; people from group B did it in place B and not in A or C, and so forth and so on

Is this thing they're doing attending a music performance? ahem... yes

anyone ready to SpXXil it?

is the identity of the artist relevant? music genre relevant? (life)style associated to this genre relevant?

did they do something to the artist? together with the artist? did the artist make them do something? did they ask him for autographs?

did they do it more than once, but in the same place?

does the result affect them? does the result affect the artist?

Was the artist making a live album (OK, live CD/MP3)?

Was it a free concert?

is the identity of the artist relevant? no, say a very popular one
music genre relevant? mmm yes!
(life)style associated to this genre relevant? ah... ok, it's hard rock, you got it

did they do something to the artist?
together with the artist?
not easy to answer these 2: they were doing something in the same time the artist was doing something else... long answer! but we're close to the SPXXLER
did the artist make them do something? no
did they ask him for autographs? no

did they do it more than once, but in the same place? yes

does the result affect them? yes?
does the result affect the artist? yes, guess so

Was the artist making a live album (OK, live CD/MP3)? yes, he was recording live

Was it a free concert? not relevant

I guess you guys really got it. the investigation is going beyond the simple solution I had in mind... :)

they were all making a lot of sound for the live-album recording of their favourite hard-rock artist, the recording took place in three different places so that the artist could use the best audience response sounds when finishing the cd?

yes you got it

SPOILER. At every concert of Jack Rockithard people scream and yell like crazy. Regardless the exact number of people attending the show or the voice pitch of each single unit in the audience, the result is always the same: the typical background noise of a concert.
