Here's a riddle:

You're stuck in a room, there are no windows and no doors. The floor, ceiling, and walls are secure. The only items in there are a table and a mirror. How do you get out? E-mail me if you want the answer.

Break the mirror in half. Two halves make a whole, so just crawl through the (w)hole..

I was thinking laterally, but not quite laterally enough!

By the way, who builds a room with no windows or doors? lol

I don't mean to spoil the fun , but how could you see the mirror if there's no light?

I also don't want to spoil the fun, but if you break a mirror, you get 7 years bad luck. If you go through that hole, you'd probably end up somewhere more dismal than a room with no windows or doors...

Maybe it was a two way mirror so You just pick which way you want to go

He built it from the outside - more to the point, how did the trapped man get inside?
