Does it means he doesn't need any of the object?
or He doesn't "believe or dunno how to decide" in any of the object?

Do we need to know what animal it is?

Are the objects solid, liquid or gas? metal or non-metal? living or dead? malleable? man-made or natural?

A belated welcome to the forum, Bellstrom! Please put your username in the titles of your puzzles; I got it this time. =)

Is he meant to choose between the objects? Or choose between using them and not? Is this an animal that we usually consider "intelligent" (primate, dolphin, crow, etc.)? Is the use of tools relevant?

Is this animal being observed by humans? Is he in captivity? Are the "neither" things man-made?

Does it means he doesn't need any of the object? one of them is thisish
or He doesn't "believe or dunno how to decide" in any of the object? this is also close, but neither are exactly correct

Do we need to know what animal it is? yes, definitely

Are the objects solid, liquid or gas? metal or non-metal? living or dead? malleable? man-made or natural? It's hard to answer this. Honestly, the "object" portion of it is only partly an actual object. But, solid, non-metal (probably), dead, the object itself is malleable, and man-made

Gourami

A belated welcome to the forum, Bellstrom! Hah, thanks. Please put your username in the titles of your puzzles; I got it this time. =) Sorry about that. I don't know how I forgot it.

Is he meant to choose between the objects? no, and there's an FA here Or choose between using them and not? yesish, but there's still an FA lurking Is this an animal that we usually consider "intelligent" (primate, dolphin, crow, etc.)? probably not Is the use of tools relevant? yesish to one of them

Is this animal being observed by humans? could have been once Is he in captivity? probably not Are the "neither" things man-made? one is, yes

Is there one relevant object? Or two? Or more? I suppose you could call one thing a collection of objects Is the object doing something relevant? no Is it making: noise? Bubbles? Water currents? Light? An electric field? and therefore none of these
Is he confused? about the two things? no

HINT: The collection of objects are part of something currently happening.

Can you answer my previous post? Is the thing that happened: done by humans? By nature? Weather relevant? Has it happened before? will it happen again? In the same place? Can it be said that it happened to him? Was it a well known event? Relevant where it happened?

Galfisk

Weather relevant? and therefore, neither of these Has it happened before? yes will it happen again? yes, probably In the same place? yes, for svv of "same place" Can it be said that it happened to him? quite the opposite! Was it a well known event? yes, definitely Relevant where it happened? noish

Are they in the air? On land? this Are they moving? not by their own power Relvant how many there are? yesish If so, more than: 1? 2? 5? 10? 20? 50? 100? 1000? this, at least
Is he in the sea? this A lake? A stream? Puddle? Dam? Is something happening to the water? nothing relevant

Is the phrase: "Nothing's certain but death and taxes" relevant?

I'm still confused about what kind of animal he is. He's thisishly a fish, but he's only about the size of a fruit fly. But he's not a sea monkey, amoeba, or plankton. Is he a baby fish?
If he's not actually a fish, in what ways is he like a fish...he's in the ocean? He swims? He's an animal? Or an animal-like protist? He's shaped like a fish? Other?

If he's not actually a fish, in what ways is he like a fish...he's in the ocean? yes He swims? yes He's an animal? and yes Or an animal-like protist? He's shaped like a fish? Other? no to rest

Mackadal

Is he that type of jellyfish that can technically never die? <b>That's the one, so this warrants a...<b/>

*** SPOILER ***
There is a saying that goes something like "Nothing is certain except death and taxes."

The Immortal Jellyfish is a very small jellyfish (about 5mm long) that, true to it's name, has the capability of immortality. It can revert to its infant form basically at will, thereby extending its life.

Being that it is an animal, and therefore not subject to taxes, and also immortal, the Immortal Jellyfish is not certain of either death or taxes.
