Let's try one of these again. Remember I can only answer with yes/no.


A man is riding a subway. He meets a one-armed man, who pulls out a gun and shoots him. Why?

Was the shot man directly responsible for the One-Armed Man's one-handedness?
Does it matter which hand was missing?
Was the hand incident war-related?

Was the OAM hunting/searching for the shot man? Was their subway meeting coincidental? Is that even relevant?
Was the OAM's hand loss a recent event?

Were the OAM and the shot man formerly part of a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit? Did these men promptly escape from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Are these men still wanted by the government? Do they survive as soldiers of fortune?

Is the timeframe relevant? I mean, could this have happened yesterday, or in the 60's, or 40's?

Did they converse before the OAM shot the other man? Was there a sudden flash of recognition? Had the OAM intended to shoot the shot man for a long period of time?
Did the OAM know that the shot man was responsible for the hand loss prior to their meeting on the subway?
