A wise king devised a contest to see who would receive the Princess hand in marriage. The Princess was put in a 50*50 foot carpeted room. Each of her four suitors were put in one corner of the room with a small box to stand on. The first one to touch the Princess hand would be the winner and become the king.
The rules were the contestants could not walk over the carpet, cross the plane of the carpet or hang from anything; nor could they use anything but their body and wits ( i.e. no magic, telepathy, nor any items such as ladders,block and tackles etc).
One suitor figured out a way and married the Princess and became the new king.
