Riddle: A person is naked in the desert. If they aren't dead, they probably will be soon. There are no footsteps or tracks of any kind indicating how they got there, and there is a broken matchstick in their hand. What happened?
Answer: The unfortunate person was travelling in an air balloon with others when it started to go down. Fearful that they wouldn't make it out of the desert, they first shed their clothes to lessen the weight. They continued to descend and decided to choose a person to throw overboard to save the rest. They had wooden matches to ignite the flame, and our unlucky friend drew the broken short matchstick and was tossed over.
