Puzzles

Yesterday I found a bar of soap, unwrapped, lying on Court Street. What scenario could have resulted in it coming to rest there? Was someone washing his hands on the sidewalk, dropped the soap, and didn't notice?

On a sign at the World Trade Center railway station: "If it looks like a suspicious activity, it is a suspicious activity." Is this an attempt at defining what suspicious means? (I.e., it's a matter of appearance.)

Sure, John Goes, but where does he go?

And lastly, who was Lucius Aelius Aurelius Commodus Augustus Herculeus Romanus Exsuperatorius Amazoncius Invictus Felix Pius?

    Gene,

    Did you mean: "Lucius Aelius Aurelius Commodus Augustus Hercules Romanus Exasperatus Amazonicus Invictus Felix Pius"

  6. There are many reasons why a person might have dropped a "lightly" used bar of soap on the street.

    Consider a married man out on a date, which might not meet approval of his wife.

    He doesn't want to come home with the scent of another woman on his body. He also doesn't want to come home with the scent of a foreign soap (ie, another perfume) on his body. So the man brings along a bar of his typical household soap to his rendezvous. Maybe there's something about the woman who is the object the paramour. Maybe she wants him to get caught? Maybe she wants him to drag his sorry ass home with the scent of another woman on his body, or something else identifiable like her own perfumed soap. It would behoove him to pack a bar of soap ahead of his rendezvous, as I'm sure Gov. Spitzer would do.

    To satisfy all parties, he brings the bar of soap to the girlfriends, and repacks the soap before departure. On the way home early the next morning, he ditches said soap into a garden or on the sidewalk. Everyone is satisfied except the person who discovers the soap the next day, as he spins his wheels upon it.
