is weather relevent?
If one of them did not throw it out, would other one benifit more?
If they dont do this, will they suffer loss?
will they both gain same amount of benifit?
Or they could compete with each other for more gain?
Is the even man-made, or natural?
Could these two peopl have ever expected this to happen? Or it is a lifetime surprise event for them?
Is furniture made of wood? Fire relevent?
Is time of the event relevent?

Is it relevant how Bill "investigated"? Did he go over and talk to Sal? and then decide what Sal was doing made sense, so he copied?
Is specifically what Sal saw and heard relevant? Was it something on TV? a commercial? a news broadcast?
These third person(s)... 1 person? 2? more?
relatives of Bill? of Sal? neighbors? Did Bill and Sal know these person(s)? know them well?
Would these other(s) have wanted the furniture in the street? Would they care?

Is the act of throwing furniture important in itself?
Is there anything else tangible that is relevant?
Is the location significant?
Has anything changed or happened recently at the location?

Or they could compete with each other for more gain? No, likely not

This other person-- let's say C. standard q's: human? adult? living? male?

Do they expect the furniture to stay in the street?
Do they expect C to know that their furniture is in the street?
Do they expect C to interact with the furniture in some way?
use? move? take? destroy?
Do they expect to see or meet C?

The furniture is made of or contains...
plastic? metal? wicker? fabric? glass?

Is the current weather relevant? or something that is going to happen?
rain? storm? tornado?

Are they tossing all they're lawn furniture? or some that meet a certain criterion? Does it matter?

Did Sal see or hear something on the internet? radio? ham radio?

Is the event man-made, or natural? I mean, situation is result of human activity or natural thing?
By throwing furniture out, are they making room for something that can go on lawn?
Is something being thrown/felling that will break if it hits furniture, but not break if it falls on lawn?
Could they benifit by throwing furniture in say basement/underground room, rather than throwing it on road?
What if they hadn't had any furniture on lawn - would they still benifit? or benifit comes from throwing?
Benifit from throwing furniture only?
Benifit from throwing something else (due to no furniture) like say used tyers/boxes?

Any of these relevant:
Wind?
Hurricanes / Tornadoes?
Volcanoes?
Earthquakes?
Fire?
Rain?
Snow?
Hail?

Is the physical relationship between the street and the lawned gardens relevant?

Are it materials that the furniture is composed of relevant?

Is there anything happening (other than the furniture throwing) that could be percieved as surreal?

This other person-- let's say C. standard q's: human? adult? living? Yes to all
male? Or female, doesn't matter
Do they expect the furniture to stay in the street? No
Do they expect C to know that their furniture is in the street? Yes
Do they expect C to interact with the furniture in some way? I'd say not
use? move? take? destroy? No to these
Do they expect to see or meet C? Yes-ish, you may want to re-phrase this q

The furniture is made of or contains...
plastic? Yes
metal? wicker? fabric? glass? None of these

Is the current weather relevant? Yes
or something that is going to happen? This as well
rain? storm? Yes to these, but there is another way to describe this weather
tornado? No

Are they tossing all they're lawn furniture? Possibly, keep reading...
or some that meet a certain criterion? Yes
Does it matter? Yes

Did Sal see or hear something on the internet? radio? ham radio? Probably not any of these

Are they tossing all their lawn furniture? Not relevant, just to know they are throwing some of it

Is the event man-made, or natural? Actually both of these are applicable, but the major part of the event is natural
I mean, situation is result of human activity or natural thing? Again, both factors apply but mostly natural
By throwing furniture out, are they making room for something that can go on lawn? No
Is something being thrown/felling that will break if it hits furniture, but not break if it falls on lawn? No, N/A
Could they benifit by throwing furniture in say basement/underground room, rather than throwing it on road? No, that would not produce the desired result
What if they hadn't had any furniture on lawn - would they still benifit? NO (good question) - if they hadn't had lawn furniture they most likely would not have benefitted at all
or benifit comes from throwing? Well part of it, yes
Benifit from throwing furniture only?
Benifit from throwing something else (due to no furniture) like say used tyers/boxes? Boxes certainly could have been thrown if they met certain criteria, but these two guys will 'benefit' (and be careful how you define this word) because of the type of furniture on their lawn

Any of these relevant:
Wind? YES
Hurricanes? YES

Tornadoes/Volcanoes/Earthquakes/Fire/Rain/Snow/Hail? None of these

Is the physical relationship between the street and the lawned gardens relevant? I don't think so

Are it materials that the furniture is composed of relevant? Yes

Is there anything happening (other than the furniture throwing) that could be percieved as surreal? I would say not

Is the thought here that the Hurricane would suck up the furniture and blow it onto the house causing damage or risk to the inhabitants?

Was the Hurricane already upon them?
Or was it just brewing?
relevant?

Is there something else that we need to know about the:

Street?
Furniture?
Lawns?
Houses?
location?
People?
Hurricane?
Other?

Does the 'benefit' involve affecting the hurricane somehow? stopping or slowing it? affecting it's course?
Is the color of the furniture relevant?
This other person, can we give him a name? Joe?
Is the furniture a signal? to Joe? that they need rescuing?

Are they only tossing furniture made of plastic?
Do they want the hurricane to take the furniture? To move it? To blow it over?
Relevant where in the world they are? Is the hurricane actually going to come through their area?

Do they hope the hurricane will remove the furniture for them? Send it to anywhere in particular?

Are they sort of "acting" as a hurricane themselves? Will they blame the hurricane for throwing the furniture into the street?

Will they ever retrieve the furniture? Do they want it to go somewhere nearby? In the same neighborhood?

Are they making it seem as if the hurricane came through although it didn't?
