A man lives in a high-rise apartment building in the city. One day, as usual, he gets up, has breakfast, showers, dresses, kisses his wife good-bye, and leaves for work. He walks down the corridor to the elevator. After standing there for a minute or so, he realizes his wife is dead.

How did he know? Standard rules of engagement.

I know this one, so I can't guess =/
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

No. The mystery is how did he know she was dead?

The chomping avvie is somehow disturbing. Can you make it eat the bacon?

Did some sort of natural disaster hit the building?
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Between leaving his apartment, and walking to the elevator, had the structure of the building been compromised in any way?
