I figured the guard would eventually have to drop a frozen dinner through the sky light.

I've done this exact same one in elementary school! I can't believe its never been posted at Braingle before. Nevertheless, congrats to whoever created the teaser first

Great teaser! I think it would make more sense though if it said "what would you eat and drink" instead of "how would you eat and drink"

i'm with katelin - i answered "i would eat with my hands and mouth", because that's *how* i eat...what i eat is a different question - good teaser though!

My question is how did I get in the room if there were no doors or windows!? And what was there to lock if there weren't windows or doors? Other than that it was a good play on words. I enjoyed it!

huh? my guess was to eat the matress and calender then start eating yourself but i guess that works 2.

It was a great one. Made me laugh. I thought about eating the bed and calander also. I have been reading all of the past trick and thought this was another stupid and easy one. I had given up on trying to think about it.
aznboi1324Avn*

LOL

ya just eat it its good!

well a date is a fruit.
And you have dates on the calender.

A spring is where you get water from.
theere are springs on your bead.

wow, that was a really mean comment from sk8erfun. good thing it was erased. i thought it was an awesome puzzle. i've already heard it before, but i still didn't get it! I guess i don't really have a good memory when it comes to those things! anyway, great one!

But what if the bed was one of those Tempurpedic things? J/k

Jul 05, 2005

i didn't know you had to live when you ate something i just thought you had to eat SOMETHING so i said eat the bed and the calendar... that was a smart play on words though
sambean**
Jul 05, 2005

i thought it was really easy but that is because i have heard it before
goosh*
Jul 08, 2005

wow- i really had no idea. u stumped me. i thought that it was like a trick question or something- u know like the ones that have no answers

A bunch of people seemed to ask this before I could, but without windows or doors how the devil did you even get in there? I was thinking of eating the matress too and as for a liquid supply I just thought of doing what Leonado Dicaprio (sp?) did in the Aviator.

Well he got sucked into the wrong matrix world then the vortex thing vanished

Nice one! But wouldn't you suffocate? I mean you never said there was air in there. For all I know this could've been built on the moon. LOL Nice one!

Wouldnt you sufficate with no air coming into the room?

One problem: there's only 365 dates. Not nearly enough to survive on for any substantial amount of time.
