If you were the size of a pencil, how would you get out

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/see-answer-insanely-difficult-goldman-152323831.html

I like some of the answers at the bottom.

I was thinking more along the lines seeing what was in the blender with me and using that to build something to get out. If I'm there alone I'd try and jump out. Pencils are petty tall so I think that might be an option.

All depends if im the height of a new pencil or a stub. Average blender vessel is approx 10 inches tall. Average new pencil is about 7 inches. Should be possible to get out, especially if there is any food in there with me. Even empty reaching up you should be able to touch the top

For me the biggest concern would how not to break something dropping out the outside of the blender. Would be just high enough with the base that an awkward fall would leave you trapped on the counter. Kind of like hanging out a second story window and dropping to the ground

Bounce from side to side to tip it over. Once it's tipped over, walk out. Kick off or push off lid if necessary. Take giant strawberry with me.

I'd wait for the strawberry halves to fall into the blender. Two halves make a whole. Then I'd crawl out the hole.
