Answer to Riddle...

...is NOT as Brian guessed, "Use the metal to cool down the licorice strip so that it hardens and then you climb up."...to which Sean exclaims, "But how do you know the metal is cold...it could be warm."

The answer my friends....

You unlock the door and walk out. The piece of metal is a key :)

I knew it! The answer is always something simple but we always like to think complicated! haha...

Brian the brain! Very scientific!

Riddles like this throw in a 'red herring' to confuse us, in this case, the licorice rope which has nothing at all to do with the solution.

Brian's form teacher was sharp enough though to ask how long the metal was. When Brian came back from PE, the teacher said use the metal to pick the lock. Not bad, pretty close I thought.

As Li Min says, we always like to complicate matters.
