Micheal has basketball trainings on Tuesdays, 18:00 to 20:00. He always showers after the match, as most of his team-mates do. However, it usually takes longer for Micheal to shower than for anyone else. Why?

I will be surprised if you guys don't crack it within five posts.

Just to clarify, when you say he always showers after the game do you mean after training?

Is Michael H? A? M?

He's not some huge animal that's a team mascot?

If he is human is he really tall? Does he drop the soap (no prison humour please)?

Just to clarify, when you say he always showers after the game do you mean after training? Yes.

Is Michael H? A? M? Yes to all.

He's not some huge animal that's a team mascot? 'fraid not.

If he is human is he really tall? Irrelevant. Does he drop the soap (no prison humour please)? Aaah, I see where you getting at. No, or anyway not more often than other people. Nice idea, though :-)

Does he have any relevant disability? Does he engage in a particular activity when showering? (cooking, of course, comes to mind)

Does he have a garbage disposal in his shower? Is he a character from Seinfeld?

Does it take Micheal a longer time to wash himself than most people? Does everyone else take a shorter time than most people? Does he often fall asleep in the shower? When you say he usually takes longer than anyone else, is the time difference usually:
Less than a second?
More than a second, less than a minute?
More than a minute, less than 5 minutes?
More than 5 minutes, less than 10 minutes?
More than 10 minutes, less than 4 hours?
More than 4 hours, less than 12 hours?
More than 12 hours, less than 2 days?
More than 2 days, less than a week?
More than a week?

Is it relevant where he showers? When he showers? Why he showers? How he showers? With whom he showers? :P

Does he shower at the same time as the other persons? Would it make any difference if he took a shower in space instead? What about if he showered upside-down?

I never said he would have to play basketball in space.

Does he shower the same day as the trainings? The next morning, when he's still nearly paralyzed from sleep hormones and chemicals and whatnot?

Is he in the last shower stall and so gets the least shower pressure/water delivered to his shower?

Hmmm... it seems possible, although in that circumstance, where he showered would most certainly be relevant. If this was some kind of locker room shower or something of that nature, it makes perfect sense. Hmmm.... Perhaps Arek' Fu deceived me...

hmm, well if plumbing is relevent then which shower he uses should be relevant and that would be where he showers right? He could walk next door and shower just as quickly as everyone else

So there is no doubt Arek fu was intentionally deceiving you.

To punish her, we should continue asking questions


Is Joe afraid of cold water? has a condition that makes it dangerous for him? Does he jumps back and waits for the water to warm while the others don't? Does he refuse to get into the shower before the water is running full force?

Does he have any allergy? If he stood under cold water would something happen that would cause him embarassment?

Does he get to the shower first? And so he has to wait for the water to warm up, because he wants it warm? Whereas the others don't care or get there once it's already warmed up?

If this is the case, does he get there first because he's faster? Faster at getting undressed? Doesn't sit around in the locker room as long before going to the shower?

*********** SPOILER ***********

Does he get to the shower first? And so he has to wait for the water to warm up, because he wants it warm? Whereas the others don't care or get there once it's already warmed up? Exactly so.

If this is the case, does he get there first because he's faster? Faster at getting undressed? Doesn't sit around in the locker room as long before going to the shower? The idea was that he always leaves ten minutes earlier than the others because he has another engagement elsewhere.

Thanks for playing everyone.

Ah, I see. So where he showered was not relevant. It was relevant where EVERYONE ELSE showered. I get it now.
