A man is trapped in a room with only two possible exits: two doors. Through the first door, there is a room constructed from magnifying glass. The blazing sun instantly fries anyone or anything that enters. Through the second door, there is a fire breathing dragon. How does the man escape?

You still have 10 apples, they are just a little less put together than they were before, at least you do for a while. Razz

Since stalker hasnt posted I shall add my own in his place:
5 Birds stand in a row atop a grey concrete wall. You shoot one dead with a S&W .44 Magnum Revolver. How many birds remain on the wall?

5 - it's still on the wall dead? In little pieces?
