Is it possible that Smith noticed his wallet was missing, and punched Smith after assuming he was the pickpocket?

That's probably not bizarre enough.
Plausible, but you are correct - the real answer is far more bizarre!

Mr Smith is obviously a right-wing nutbag and Mr Jones a left-wing fruitcake. Mr Smith therefore blames Mr Jones for inducing angina, and makes vigilante response.

Political extremism is always bizarre!
Tis true. Although not critical to the answer, both Mr Smith and Mr Jones are liberals ;) :p

What do you think?! :D

These things always have 'bizarre' answers! It's a case of scenario building...

:D This puzzle predates the Matrix so no!

I'll dig out the real answer tonight when I get home...I can't remember it, but IIRC it has something to do with jealousy.

oh jealousy!
and also the answer is supposed to be bizarre right.then what abt this?
since they were both drunk.
smith got jealous of jones being a step higher than him on the staircase.
hence the punch.
or may be jones looked a little 'cooler' than him :D

Ok a few clues:

- It involves a women who isn't present
- Mr Smith has a rather bizarre skill which he uses on Mr Jones to get him to do something

What are the sequence of events? (Recall: Mr. Jones meets Mr. Smith in a hotel bar. After a heated discussion, they leave the bar and head upstairs. Partway up the stairs, Mr. Smith clutches his chest, then punches Mr. Jones in the face. Can you describe the sequence of events?)

Rereading the answer makes it seem even more bizarre! :D

bizarre things always happen when a woman is involved,
its going to be beyond me to solve this,
here is another try,
perhaps the heated discussion was over the woman,
they go upstairs to settle it for once and for all,
smith is skilled in making people sober after intoxication .

I'd love to give you the answer, but when someone recently stole my laptop, they stole the answer! :(

no problem
the thief will soon be posting a question on this forum about the heatsink adhesive for a laptop. we'll immediately know which laptop he is talking about. :D

or atleast maybe he will be courteous enough to post the answer.
