Ok...

He...H? A? M?

the towel...must it be orange? Is it related to safety? sports? a particular sports team?

the wire...metal? coated? diameter > 1/4"? lenghth > 1 foot?

Does he plan to use these objects to perform a task?
Significant where he is? indoors? outdoors?
Where he plans to use these objects...indoors? outdoors?

Will he use the object at the same time?

He...H? A? M? i am new here, what do those ab. mean?

the towel...must it be orange? yessish Is it related to safety? no sports? a particular sports team? no

the wire...metal? yes; are any wires made of sth else than metal by the way? coated? irrelevant diameter > 1/4"? no lenghth > 1 foot? 1 foot is enough

Does he plan to use these objects to perform a task? what is a task then?
Significant where he is? indoors? outdoors? both of them possible, not really relevant
Where he plans to use these objects...indoors? outdoors? this one

Will he use the object at the same time? did you mean "the objects" - plural? if so - yes

Human? Adult? Male?

As far as the material of the wire...I assume nothing!

Does he plan to use these objects for something(as opposed to just toting them around for psychological reasons...you'd be surprised!)?

Is his occupation relevant?

Place where he plans to use these...in his yard? in a public area? on the street? in the woods? on a beach?

Is the weather relevant?

Does he need it to live? Is his life being threatened? Is his life in danger?

When you say location is important, are you referring to a building? City? State?

Does the towel need to be a loud color for it to be seen by someone or something else?

Are there other people that need it as well?

Are his actions practical?

Does it have to be an orange towel? Can it be bigger, like a tablecloth? Smaller like a handkerchief? Is absorbency of the towel relevant?

When you say time is relevant, are you referring to time of day, such as during daylight hours? Or is it time of year? Time of month? Seasons? Holiday? Moon cycle?

So the towel is attached to the wire, and the wire is attached to the washing line. Would he just let the towel hang loose? Or tie it to something else?
Is the towel wet?
Does he need it because he wants to know which way the wind blows?

Is the towel used to provide some type of information to man #2?
Does man #2 know why the towel is there?
Would man # 1 ever use a different color towel?
If man #2 saw a different color towel, would he assume something different than if he saw the orange towel (possible false assumption here, I know)?

Does man #1 use the towel to prevent man #2 from seeing something? into his window? Does man #1 use the towel to prevent himself from seeing something (such as man #2 walking naked around his apartment)? the sun? a bright light? to prevent a glare from a light on his television?

Before I answered on the question "will he see the contraption?"
>>directy after hanging it - yes, but later on.. it depends (good question)<<
but I should have answered:
>>directy after hanging it - yes, but later on.. it depends and then again he will (good question)<<

Is the towel man testing something? like the strength of the wire? the clothes line?

Does the towel man's reason for hanging the towel involve man #2?

Does he drop the towel on man #2's head when he enters the building?

When the towel is no longer hanging there, is it because the man removed it? does he retain posession of the towel?

I'm getting a little confused...mind if I try to recap what I think we know?

So man #1 lives in a flat and builds a contraption on his balcony in the evening by hanging an orange towel by a wire from a wash line because he is trying to test something. There is another man (#2) who is not his roommate, not his neighbor, but lives in the same building. Man #2 is involved in man #1's "test", but he does not know the towel is there. Man #1 will remove the towel after a few minutes. Man #2 will see it at first, then maybe not, then again he will. Finally, man #1 and man #2 are "aquaintances", but not friends. Please correct me if any of this is wrong...

Now...
Is man #2 the building superintendant?
Does man #2 know what man#1 is trying to do with the towel?
Does man #1 hang the towel on more than one occasion, or only once?

Man #2 is involved in man #1's "test", but he does not know the towel is there. Man #1 will remove the towel after a few minutes. Man #2 will see it at first, then maybe not, then again he will. the underlined sentence is wrong - Man #1 will see it at first, then maybe not, then again he will, not man #2 Finally, man #1 and man #2 are "aquaintances", but not friends.

regarding the problem of underlined sentence above: I am sorry but Adryghi's question referred to her previous question and she meant "man #2" by "he" and I meant man #1 (our hero) - thanks for the recap - I wasn't aware that something might be wrong here

Thanks. Glad we cleared that up. Although I can't really say I feel as though I am any less confused (must be a good puzzle).

Trying a different approach...is the towel guy trying to see if he is able to see the towel from a specific location? within the apartment? possibly to determine if his roommate may have seen something that may have occurred on the balcony? or something he plans to do on the balcony?

Is this a block of flats? If so, do the two men live on the same level?.
Does Man #2 live directly below man #1?

Is Man #1 trying to displace the towel to some point where it would be visable to both men? visible to neither men?

Is he planning on attaching something else to the wire after he removes the towel? a mirror?

Is the length of the wire relevent? Does the 'contraption' extend straight down, or does it extend out a little as well? how far back from the balestraude of the balcony is the washing-line? 0-10cm? 10cm-1m? further?
Does the wire drop below the level of the balcony?

Is the towel for visability purposes or for weight?
