It's entirely possible that I posted this puzzle, or some variety of it, years ago... I can't recall. So if you know the answer, please don't sp0il!

Daniel threatened me with physical violence. Because of my reaction, Daniel now anticipates receiving a sizable amount of money.

Does he anticipate to receive the money from: you? Someone else? Will he get the money? Do you want him to get the money? Is it real currency? Or monopoly money? Was his threat serious? Or meant in jest? Did you overreact? Or dismiss his threat? Did he ever carry out his threat?

Is he expecting an insurance type payout? Were you protecting yourself or your possessions and he got hurt (physically or mentally) in the process and sues you?

Did you react by: Carrying out some physical action? Not doing something you would otherwise have done? Saying something? Going somewhere? Directly interacting with Daniel in some way? Interacting with someone else? With an object?

If he does get the money, will you just hand it to him? (In cash? A check? Credit card? A bank transfer? Stock tips? Something valuable he can sell?) Will you carry out some action that is profitable to him? Is it up to you whether he gets the money now? Or are you just waiting to see whether your reaction has led to his profit? If he gets the money, will you be poorer?

Did you say something positive to him? Negative? Neutral? none of these very accurately describes the nature of my remark...this also depends on whether you're meaning positive and negative in terms of attitude, tone or grammar... grammatically, there was a negative and an arguably positive part. My attitude was neutral to positive, is suppose.

Hm. Well, here come the really awkward questions. The nuts? The walnuts? The lady-parts? The [insert slang word for vagina here]?

Since you (presumably) don't have the "nuts" he was referring to, did you offer to let him kick some nuts of the botanical kind?

Relevant why he was threatening to kick you? Why he specifically said he'd kick you in the nuts when you're a girl? Did you respond with sarcasm? Or just by making the bet? Was the bet supposed to be serious? Would him winning the bet involve him kicking the walnuts? Would you have to do anything with the walnuts before he interacted with them?

It just kind of slipped out of his mouth without him thinking Did you respond with sarcasm?noish Or just by making the bet?yesish Was the bet supposed to be serious?yes Would him winning the bet involve him kicking the walnuts?no, but... Would you have to do anything with the walnuts before he interacted with them?no, but I think there's an FA

Sorry, I know you said type of nut was irrelevant, I just like walnuts. Is type of nut irrelevant to the point that this scenario would work with some hitherto undiscovered type of nut that doesn't have a shell?

Okay, in carrying out this bet, does he have to be in possession of some nuts? If so, will he ever touch them? Alter them in some way? Use them to create something? Will you touch them? If he doesn't need to have nuts, does he need to kick something? In telling someone what he needs to do, would you use the word "nuts"?

Does he need to kick: the nuts? You? Both? Something else? Does he kick the nuts and then give them to you? Or give them to you and then kick them?

Would what he has to do be a literal interpretation of "kicking you in the nuts"? For example, he has to kick you while inside of a nut?

Maybe both of you need to be in a tub (e.g. bathtub) full of nuts? Which means he needs a lot of money to buy enough nuts such that you can be "in the nuts"?

Do you both need to be "in the nuts"? just him? just you? Is it actually a tub/wading pool/some other large container full of nuts? A nut tree/field? Or do you just have to be coated in nuts?

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

About ten years ago, when my brother, Daniel, was 11 and I was 17, he got angry at me for some reason and threatened to "kick me in the nuts." I laughed, and told him good luck, considering that I lack the necessary parts. Daniel, always determined, and always a smart ass, laughingly said that somehow he'd find a way. So, I told him this: If you can, at any point in our lives, manage to buy enough nuts to fill up a swimming pool, not a kiddie pool, but at least a small swimming pool, somehow trick or force me into these nuts, and manage to kick me while I'm "in the nuts" I will refund you double the cost of the operation.

Ten years later, 21 years old, my brother is still quite serious that he WILL accomplish this feat. Every few years we've discussed the terms, addressing questions like "are packing peanuts considered nuts? Are actual peanuts considered nuts for that matter...the answers are no and yes, respectively) While I don't want to have to pay him, I still think it would be AMAZING if he could pull it off. I'll start worrying when he actually has any money to potentially buy the nuts in the first place.

Coming back from my five day trip, and I read this thread...haven't stopped laughing since.

Great puzzle - I'd love to find out if, and when, he succeeds. That would be hilarious, despite the possible cost.

Wow... I shudder to think what lengths your brother might go to in order to commandeer an empty swimming pool. Great puzzle!
