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.

It’s a play on words. See the answer for a more thorough explanation.

If you don’t understand it don’t think logically in this riddle. This riddle requires a person to string a bunch of words, including all its meaning

ayesha, it is a play on words:
Look in the mirror, see what you saw, grab the saw, (so now you have a saw)

Take the saw and saw the table in two halves
two halves make a whole (sounds like ‘hole’). Put the two halves on the wall. crawl through the whole (hole) and your out!

this riddle is a play on the English language, using Homophones. other languages will not have this issue as often as English does.

Total nonsense

How about just breaking the mirror or table in twos or threes, putting it together for the ‘whole’ and climb through it. Skip the saw part, cause ultimately the ‘hole’ is needed to climb out of.

Look in the mirror(saw), take the saw, saw the table, put them back together (whole), and go through the hole.

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 and you see what you saw, you use the saw to cut the table in half, two halves make a whole and you jump through the hole.

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.

this is still the most absurd riddle to imo…my dad told it to me once a year at least. he knows other, better riddles. he just likes this one. I never remember how it ends until I google it.

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!

you only say the items are the mirror and table, where is the saw dome from?

This riddle should be removed from existence.

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?

No windows, no doors, or any exit; would assume there is no light to see what could have seen (saw) in the a mirror.
A whole doesn’t make a hole.

One can only presume the person in the box is now part of a quantum study similar to ‘Schroeder’s cat’.

in the original the saw is obtained by scraping your hands against the wall until the are sore

Now this one was kind of easy for me because I know this one by my heart if you ask me I can get this done in like what two seconds but you take a you took the I’m looking at you see what you saw and you take what you saw and cut this table in half 2 add two holes equal a whole so you call through the whole week is how you get this all because when you look in the mirror you see what you saw so you take what you saw and you cut the tape on top get it you don’t really get comment below and I can explain it better puppy while I don’t understand this please explain more


Rozalynn says

Also the other one is if you have an orange and a knife you cut the orange in half with the knife and then you crawl to go hold because you have equal whole but yeah that’s the other one and that’s really need explaining because it’s really super easy cuz you have a knife in an orange and crawl through the hole so yeah that’s really it so I don’t really need to explain anymore but even if you don’t get it just let me know and I’ll do I’ll explain more
