    You are in a room, a totally sealed and confined space. The room has nothing inside, except for you, a saw and a round wooden table. You try to use the saw to cut your way out. Unfortunatly, the walls can't be sawn through. How do you get out? Yes/no questions will be answered. This riddle is very stupid, you will probably want to hit me after you hear the answer...

    First you cut the table in half ...

    The version I heard you didnt even have a saw to start! (You had to make one by rubbing your arm.)

    And of course you shout at the top of your voice until you are hoarse ... and then make your getaway on that!

    That wasn't stated in the problem. It was only stated that you can't saw through walls (not ceiling)

    A lot of things weren't stated in the problem. It was not stated in the problem that you could not teleport, however teleporting is not the answer.

    You can add in the room a calendar and a bed.

    Extra stipulation;

    Before you escape you have to have something
    to drink and something to eat.

    Drink water from spring in bed.
    Eat dates from calendar.

    I think you and I are the only ones who get the riddle. The two halves put together make a (whole/hole).
