Was the bathtub ever inside a house? Was it in a house in the field, but the house was destroyed, leaving only the bathtub?

Is the field a battlefield?
Is the field a magnetic field? All bathtubs on Earth are in Earth's magnetic field. :-P

About how large is the field? Smaller than 1,000 square feet? 100,000? 1,000,000? 10,000,000? Larger than 10,000,000 square feet?

Solid as in one piece? Several pieces (such as stones)? Or such as sand?

Is the bathtub supposed to be full? Overflowing? Relevant?

Is it going to serve as an obstacle?

Are we talking about a NORMAL household bathtub, that has somehow been moved to a field?

Full: filled to maximum capacity with something
Overflowing: filled to maximum capacity, and then some, causing spillage outside the shape of the bathtub

Is it relevant that the bath may be either full or overflowing?
If so: is it full? Is it overflowing?

Are we talking about a NORMAL household bathtub, that has somehow been moved to a field? an old fashioned clawfooted bathtub

Full: filled to maximum capacity with something
Overflowing: filled to maximum capacity, and then some, causing spillage outside the shape of the bathtub its overflowing, but I wouldn't say there is spillage

Is it relevant that the bath may be either full or overflowing? Yope, it can help you determine the answer, but its not necessary for it to be full

Animalia = the kingdom of organisms in domain Eukarya (something like that) that are multicellular and ingest other organisms for energy.

Ooops, looking over this thread it appears I missed some questions because Slameye posted at the same time I was writing my response to a previous question. I'll be more careful of that in the future

Was the bathtub carried to the filed? yope

Driven in a vehichle of some sort? yes

Dropped from an (any type of)aircraft? No

Did it get there without touching the ground in som other manner? yes but irrelevant

Is it there to collect something, i.e. will it get filled eventually? yes


Has it been in the field for more than
a month

Will it be removed when it has served it's purpose? yes

So there's a tub that's being used as a big flower pot for groeing something.
And there's an animal present.
Is what's being grown being grown to feed the animal?
Will the animal stay in the tub?

I'm still a little confused. If a human is the relevant animal, then what was my FA?

For agriculture?
For decoration?
For the purposes of having a lateral thinking puzzle?
To break a couple world records?
Just to be random?
To confuse people?

For decoration? yes

For the purposes of having a lateral thinking puzzle? no

Just to be random? no

To confuse people? no

***Spoiler***

This is probably is far as people will get. Farmer Joe saw a toilet being used as a flower pot in his neighbors yard (shockingly my neigbor does that in rl). He loved the idea, the uniqueness, etc but knew his wife would never go for it. So when it was time to replace his old bathtub, he hauled it out into the field to use it as a giant pot to grow all of his wife's favorite flowers. Then when the flowers are grown he's going to transport back into the yard, hoping that his wife will be too thrilled by the flowers to demand he throw the tub out

Where I come from there are bathtubs in many fields. Farmers put them there for the cows to drink from. But that would hardly count as a puzzle, would it?
