Title: Home, sweet home
Post by alien2 on Jan 14th, 2018, 10:18am
There are ten similar houses lined up. A hooligan, who soon after tragically dies in a knife fight, marks one door with an X by using a graffiti sprayer and then passes along the information to his gang. The unfortunate person inside is targeted for severe beating. Luckily, he notices the X sign on time but he is not able to remove it and the hooligans are on their way which is what he strongly suspects. Interestingly enough, he has a graffiti sprayer himself and of the same color but that is all he can use at the moment. Still, he gets off the hook. How?

He calls the police?

He puts a cross on the 9 other doors?

He unhooks the door and switches it with a neighbor's?  (the one with a big tree dropping leaves in your garden)

He adds an "E" left and "IT" right of the X?

He used his McGuyver knife to unscrew the hook?

Not bad. But, I wonder if there is time and whether or not his neighbor is home. And what if he is Chuck Norris!?
