One I remember from growing up is: * If the sandbags would have had heads, the people would not have died. A: The people died on a roller coaster. It was tested with sandbags simulating the weight of passengers, but there was a spot where the tracks were a bit too close together and actual passengers had their heads knocked off by another track.

Albatross Soup

Thanks so much for the answer to the "Albatross Soup" mystery". I had been pulling my hair out over it for the last couple of days. I must say, though, that the important part of the riddle is that fact that the man realized that he had been eating his own wife (it wasn't the Navy, it was a cruise ship), and that's why he took his own life.
