This one is very VERY simple. If you dont get it at first glance, you probably won't get it until you look at the answer. I will give you one hint though. Do not think to hard or you will come up with a completely well thought out, intelligent answer. Which will probably be wrong.

Your stuck in a room with 1 door and no windows. Behind the door is a big button that, when pushed, will somehow transport you beneath whatever your standing on at the time. On the cieling is a bomb set for 30 seconds until it goes off, but is not yet activated. The floor your walking on is a width of 15 feet of glass filled with water and sharks beneath it. You have no possesions on you except for a knife and a rope. You decide to open the door. This activates the bomb. You also decide to push the the button. What shoud you do next?

Spoiler for And The Answer Is...

Run. You have 30 seconds until the bomb detonates. The average person should be able to run over 100 yards before the bomb would explode. The blast radius of a bomb that could be attached to the ceiling would be much smaller than that. Also, run to the right or left as soon as you exit the door. Because the doorway is open, it is the easiest way for the pressure to escape so most of the blast would go straight out the door.

surely u will just be transported to the other side of the Earth???
Because you would be standing on the Earth so would get transported to the other side
and the bomb surely couldnt hurt you from where it is.
