    500ccc.

    The world has turned upside down after a series of terrorist attacks. You decided it was time to bug out and were heading out of town with your amazingly stocked BOV when you made one last bathroom stop, because of all the days you had to have the trots, it's today. You remember coming out of the store and opening the door to your vehicle, but that's it.

    You wake up with a pounding headache and a broken arm. There is duct tape over your mouth. You are wearing your underwear and don't know where the rest of your clothes have gone. If you had glasses, they're gone now. As you look around you find yourself in a room you don't remember. It looks like a shed or a shack made of wooden planks with a tin roof. You are on a dirt floor and there is a metal cuff around your ankle. Padlocked to the cuff is a 3 ft long chain that is padlocked to an eyebolt in the wall. The chain is link, heavier than a dog tie out chain but not as heavy as a tow chain.

    The room is square, you estimate around 8 ft by 8 ft. The wall behind you is solid and bare. The wall to your left has a single, solid door that appears to be made from 2x4s. The wall across from you has a single window, about 3 ft high and tall, with some sort of heavy wire mesh panel covering it from the inside. Below it on the ground is a wooden stick that looks like a broken handle off a rake, approx 4 ft long. The wall to your right has 3 shelves spanning the entire length of the wall. The shelves are made from 1" x 6" pine boards resting on wooden braces screwed to the walls. On the shelves you see a can of spray paint, a big pile of dirty rags, a mousetrap with a dead rat in it, and a padlock. Above you is a single overhead light, a bare bulb hanging from an orange extension cord that runs along the ceiling and exits out the single window.

    You can hear voices but they sound far away. They sound male. You take a moment to thank your stars you don't hear Dueling Banjos playing in the distance, and then determine how you're going to escape.

    Let's hear how you are going to McGyver your way out of this one.....

    ** special thanks to a certain Monkey for this challenge.

    Grab the stock and spray can...If the spray can works, can use it to blind attackers. Stick equals fighting stick...check the rags, snag the trap and lock, see how easily the shelves bow or brake off, and test the connection on the mesh?

    are you sure that you can reach the Shelves, since the chain is only 3 ft long and the wall is 8 Ft away..... I mean if your only 5 ft tall, your fingers may just reach.....

    Use the stick/handle as a lever. If it will fit in the eyebolt pry the eye open to free the chain. If you can't get it in the eyebolt tie a knot in the chain around the handle, and near the wall, and start twisting, if the handle is strong enough, leverage will snap the chain as it twists. Again, you are free of the wall.
    The rat trap is your switch to use the electrical cord, as a a weapon with the metal mash as the ground. Use the edge of the shelf brackets to worry the power cord apart without shorting the wires, (be careful) split the cord insulation off to expose the black and white wires. Attach one wire to the metal mesh and set it aside. Strip off the insulation of the second wire for 3-4' and attach it to the rat trap, with the exposed wire as a whip from the trap bar. Attach the rat trap to the back of the door ,screws, if you have them, then paint will act like glue if nessisary.
    Tie the padlock to your chain, that has now become a flail (weapon).
    Break the light bulb, and use the element to start the rags on fire. Set the mesh just where the first steps would be when the attacker enters the door, and yell FIRE!!
    As the door opens, the rest trap triggers, whipping the live wire at throat height, while they step on the mesh. First attacker is going down. Smoke, confusion and the flail should take out the second, and the door is open, you are free of the wall, the attackers are down, and you are high tailing it out the door.
    If you see signs of more than two, get gone. With whatever clothes you can find fast. If no others appear to be around, finish the job, and kill them. Don't leave them the option of hunting you down, again. They meant you harm, so no mercy.

    Defeated in less than 10 seconds. Grab stick, keep duct tape over your mouth and reset your arm, then fashion a sling. Escape and evade to nearest iHop restaurant and have some pancakes in your highly fashionable Batman underwear.

    Shudder..
    IM not that tough... I wouldn't break a bone right off the bat. This is a difficult one for me.... 1) the likely hood of me being caught unaware isn't that great. 2) I know from personal experience you don't wake up from a whack on the head and think ery clearly.. In fact you can look like you are awake and not actually be awake

    You have to have some idea of what you are walking into in the other room. You only get one shot at this

    It's a shed, standalone building. The next room is the great outdoors.

    *rolls 12 sided dice* Yup, nobody waiting outside.

    So @BTPost finally realized I am female. Yes I am also short, I don't know if I could reach the shelves.
    Like @Ganado I am still recovering from a blow to the head wonder if the shed and lack of clothing is reality.
    @kellory excellent. I have to reread again. That was quite an action packed post, I think you may just get out.
    @Brokor the vision of being at Ihop and eating pancakes is probably a result of the head wound. As for the Batman underwear, I will leave that alone.
    @AxesAreBetter you have a good plan going but did you get out?
    @VisuTrac I am allergic to cube farms.
