You're trapped in a well with a goat and a slinky. Describe how you will escape.

I would break the slinky in two by rubbing it against a rock and I would place one slinky half on each foot so that I am bouncing up and down until I have gotten far up enough that I can crawl out. Finally, I would get help to rescue the goat. Simple.
