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

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.

Jun 08, 2005

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!

Jun 13, 2005

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.
aznboi1324Avn*

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!

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