Wewell, this is my first lateral adventure, bear with me!

There will be 5 simulations, I will do the first, and any other people can do the author of one stimulation. Then you will have a real mission to complete :-)

OK, here goes
Frank was training for super Secret Spy. He is on his final exam, and a voice boomed on the intercom: Your first Test!

He sits in a chair, and presto, it looks like he is in a locked room. There is one man, and a poster on the wall.
