    You are trapped in an enclosed room with four wall, a roof and a floor that cannot be broken.

    There are no windows or doors.

    The only things that are in the room are a mirror and a log.

    How do you escape?

    you have got to be joking... this has to be one of the oldest riddles I have ever heard.... or at least a combination of two of them.

    You use the log to make a log table. In that log table, you look up an exponential, also known as an anti-log. Using the log and the anti-log, you create a matter-antimatter explosion, and use the resulting energy to melt the walls. Now (supposing you survived the blast) you can just walk out.

    Yes, it's stupid, but I bet it's not quite as stupid as the "official" answer.

    ok, heres my solution, probably not as good as stupid mind game 2

    you karate chop a toothbrush and a chair out of the log. next you brake the mirror, so you wont die from anything(7 years of bad luck) on the 6year without porn you decide to walk out the door, turning yourself sideways like in paper mario. you realize its your house and you ate brownies again

    Ok, here it is.

    You look into the mirror and see what you saw....
    Take that saw and saw the log in half....
    The two log halves make a whole....
    You crawl out the "whole".

    Mr. Jones is kidnaped and placed on a boat in New York city bay.
    He is in a cabin down below secluded from the out side world.
    The ship sails for 90 days.

    Then the kidnapers come down and say to Mr.Jones...
    "OK, here is the deal, We have arrived at our destination and you must
    tell us where we are, or you will die. I will tell you this, we are either in
    New Zealand OR we are back in New York."

    Jones says "Let me goto the bathroom and think about this for a while please."

    Kidnappers let him goto the bathroom and when Jones comes out he
    says to the kidnapers "We are back in New York City.

    He is correct and he goes free.

    How did he know he was back in New York?

    something about this answer bothers me .. it doesn't seem right, but i'll have to reflect on it to figure it out, i suppose, but it's making me tense just thinking about it, oh dear, i feel like i just want to go and crawl into a hole

    Its all about the spin of the toilet bowl water. . .

    While that's probably the answer, it's also an urban legend.

    In fact, as Wikipedia notes on the relevant Simpsons episode page, Australian toilets are designed in such a way that the water doesn't spin in *either* direction during flushes.

    He knew that the boat he was put on was the Staten Island ferry, which isn't oceanworthy.

    Next!
