    The cutoff will be made at the final 5 people.

    First a list of all the players:

    Player/Points

    Istanbul/2
    Jaws10387/2
    Foundation of Rancor/2
    Duel/1
    Volradon/0
    Duster/0
    Spiderman/0
    The Devil565/0


    *Duel is not eligible to answer the question.

    *If you think you know the answer, post it, and who you want to kick off. BE CAREFUL, if you get the question wrong, then the person you said that you wanted to be kicked off will be aware that you wanted him/her to be kicked off and might want vengence. Play it safe.

    * Each person gets only one guess. Do not post more than once after you have posted your guess. When someone has gotten the correct answer, you may post as much as you like. I am enforcing this rule so we don't get a lot of spam.

    *If you are not involved in the game please do not post or make a guess.



    Here it is:

    Two convicts are locked in a cell. There is an unbarred window high up in the cell. No matter if they stand on the bed or one on top of the other they can't reach the window to escape. They then decide to tunnel out. However, they give up with the tunneling because it will take too long. Finally one of the convicts figures out how to escape from the cell. What is his plan?
