A Room With No Windows

You are in a room with no windows, doors or any exit. The only items are a mirror and a table. How do you escape?

Hint: This is not a typical brain teaser.

Look in the mirror, then at the wall and back at the mirror to see what you saw. Use the saw to cut the table in half and join the two halves to make a whole. Put the “hole” on the wall and climb out.

I know, it’s lame. I like to have brain teasers that you can realistically guess, but this one’s so popular, I feel an obligation to include it.

You don’t hardly need the table. Eventually you will get bored, and then you can just saw the board in half.

Look in the mirror to see what you saw, take the saw, cut the mirror in half, two halves make a whole, and then you climb through the hole. — no idea what the table is for.

You look in the mirror to see what you saw. You use what you saw to cut the tame in half. You use the halls to make a whole and then you get out.

.Sorry guys but if you’re in a closed room with only two items it’s impossible to see a saw. You’re screwed.

Punch the center of the mirror. Take a large shard of the broken mirror… Probably not a good sign that was the first place my head went.

when he climbed out he found he was at the top of a cliff with no way down. The rain was coming down in sheets so he grabbed some and tied them together and climbed down. A river flowed at the bottom of the cliff so he walked along until he came to a ford. He jumped in the ford and drove off until he came to a fork in the road which gave him a flat. When he climbed the stairs of the flat he found two tarts. He ate the first one but the other one had a ladder in her stocking. He climbed the ladder and hasn’t been seen since.

You look in the mirror, you see what you saw, you take the saw, saw the table in half, two halves make one (w)hole, you jump through the hole, you scream until your voice is hoarse, you jump on the ho(a)rse, and you ride away!
