Hilarious Puzzles

You are stuck in a room with no windows, and no doors.
The only thing in the room is a table and a mirror.
How do you get out?

Its easy

I would take the mirror and stab myself by lying on the table....

after this smell comes...
some police people will come... i would come outside as dead as u have not mentioned in question whether dead or alive...

or

rather take table and hit the wall and make a small hole....there i would break and keep the mirror...
then it shines ... by this any1 will come for help seeing that

you take the mirror, you see what you see and you saw what you saw, you take the saw you cut the table in half. take the two halfs, put them togeather, make a whole, and exit out of the hole.

Or you could just break the mirror instead and escape more quickly...

what the joke is "you take the mirror, you see what you see and you saw what you saw, you take the saw you cut the table in half. take the two halfs, put them togeather, make a whole, and exit out of the hole."

Yup. Got all the the puns. It's just that you can make a w(hole) more quickly and with less energy my way.

One should not simply look for just any solution, but that which is the most elegant. :-)

Nice answer, Michael. He came by a tunnel, so he'll take the same way back.

Well, it doesn't say .. it has a roof does it?
And it doesn't say how high the walls of the room is?
So, you put the table. climb on it .. and use the mirror to check out how deep the other side is, before you leap out to safety!

But I quite like, what Mike had to say: the same way, you get in, you get out!! Simple logic :-)

the question says: "The only thing in the room is a table and a mirror."

you are not really in the room, you just imagined yourself being stuck in it, maybe in your dream.

Or you could just run around and around and wear yourself out.

I'd walk down the hallway to the exit door.

no way to escape from properly build room.. table cant break stones. glass cant make sounds that audible to others who outside..

Beca said...

Ashish is correct. It's stupid but, the correct answer. I know somebody asked me the same thing and I tried every possible combo to get out of that room.
