A man is found dead at the bottom of a mesa in the middle of a vast desert. He is completely nude, and there are no footprints or tire tracks going to/from the body. He is completely nude, and clutching a straw in his hand. What happened?
The man was with others in a hot air balloon crossing the desert. The balloon began to lose air and sink, so they threw everything overboard, including their clothes. That wasn’t enough, so they drew straws to decide who would jump out, saving the rest.
