Strictly speaking...

'Fünf' does not begin with 'Fun' as 'ü' and 'u' are different (the Germans have more than 26 letters in their alphabet). If you do not use the letter 'ü' you would need to write it as 'ue' so the word 'Fünf' would then be 'Fuenf'.

But hey... interesting riddle, all the same!

Gee I'm shocked. That came from a "Mensa Brain Bafflers" puzzle book. I don't know how they could let that slip by.

Go is actually not written the way md usa spybot fan wrote it, because that's five in Chinese not Japanese.

Here is five in Hiragana.

You are enclosed in a room with four walls, a ceiling and a floor. There are no doors nor windows. In the room are the following items:

One Table
One Mirror

How do you get out?

You chant "Mirror, mirror on the wall... How can I escape these walls?"

Then there be a portal you can jump into in the mirror.

1. Look in the mirror.

2. See what you saw.

3. Take the saw.

4. Cut the table in half.

5. Two halves make a whole.

6. Mispell the word whole.

7. Now you have a hole.

8. Crawl out of the hole!

Six glasses are in a row.
The first three are full of juice; the second three are empty.
By moving only one glass, can you arrange them so empty and full glasses alternate?

Will have the answer in a week.

Pour the juice from the second glass into the fifth glass.

Hmm... Anybody there?
