This fantasy logic problem where words have alternate meanings (usually related t homonyms)
You saw the table in half; but the two halves together; two halves make a whole (hole) and you crawl out through the hole.
Here is another one for you:

It was originally a mirror and a table, and I'll tell you the answer to that one.

You look in the mirror and see what you saw. You take the saw and cut the table in half. Two halves make a whole. You escape through the hole and yell yourself hoarse. You get on the horse and ride away!

See how easy that was?

I thought it was like this: you ONLY have a table, and you hit you head on the table. then it becomes *sore*(saw). Cut the table in half with saw and etc. etc.

the "sound-bomb-produced-by-your-own-voice" theory could NEVER work because, your body itself would act as a dampener for the sound waves while you were there in the room screaming your lungs out, even if they were sound-reflecting walls not sound-absorbing walls.

think of it this way, if you were in a room made entirely of mirrors, could you make perpetual light if you flicked your bic just once?

well, no, if the light source were a flash light or similar light producing device ie: candle, match, blub that was used inside the room, because of the same principle i used with sound waves.

the light produced would be instantaneously absorbed by the point of production and your body, but if you were to make a 5-sided box (room) and shine a light into it from outside the box while affixing the 6th side (wall), would the light remain in the box or be negated by its own wave action?

i wonder.

There is a room with no window's, doors, or any sort of opening, the walls are solid steel 10 feet thick, and you are trapped inside, left only with a saw and a table.
How do you escape? :huh: :huh:

if there r no openings, then how did the man enter in2 d room. so a vague question

He got in the room when it had no ceiling. Some jerk came by with a big slab of metal and welded it shut. Stop asking.

There's a longer answer, just extended and a little bit more awesome to the original riddle ;) and you don't even need the original saw. :D

Spoiler for Longer answer

I've got a trapped puzzle as well.

A man is stuck in a room with big concrete walls and a locked wooden door and all he has is an apple.
