There are two people who are in a room alone. One looks around the room and then realizes he's going to die. What's going on?

The other one, who is not going to die, is a vampire and the one who is going to die saw his/her fangs?
(I read Twilight recently. Can you tell?)

Good job goodmorning! You were the closest, and this was getting to be a fairly old puzzle, so you win! The actual answer was: The first man was a human, the second a vampire. The first looked around, saw a mirror, and himself in it, but not the other man. He realized that the second man was a vampire and therefore he, the first man, was a bout to die.
Nice job!
And, go Twilight!

Next puzzle: As a man jumps out of a window, he hears the telephone ring and regrets having jumped. Why? (three foods)

Someone was going to call him, let's say his girlfriend, when thier plane landed, or when their ship docked, or something. If they didn't call, it meant their plane had crashed, or thier ship sunk, or something. When she didn't call, he jumped out the window, not wanting to leive while she didn't. As he jumped out, the telephone rang, and he regretted jumping because it could be the girlfriend.
(I got the idea for the first part from this greek myth, I forget which one. I think it was the Minotuar and whoever that was. if the hero-the kings son or grandson- was dead, they would put up black sails, and if he was alive, white ones. They had a fight with a monster and forgot to change the sails, so when the king saw the blavk sails, he jumped off a cliff into the sea.)
And go twilight! That was a long post, wasn't it?

Yes, that was a long post, and it was a very, very plausible answer, in fact it is the answer to another very similar puzzle on the same site, so I'll give you credit! But the puzzle is still up, I'll repost it in a sec, for the provided answer for that actual puzzle online! Still three foods, the puzzle is: As a man jumps out of a window, he hears the telephone ring and regrets having jumped. Why?

Goodmorning, are you going to see the movie on 12-12??

he regrets falling out because:
He forgot someone important was gonna call him??? OH WAIT! I think I know it!
Cause' someone could figure out that he was not home, then they would think "he said he was gonna be home..." and then they go see him at his house PERSONALLY and they see him died on the ground. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PM me if I get the question right!

This is a post-holocaust scenario of some kind; for whatever reason, the man believes himself to be the last human on Earth. He doesn't want to live by himself, so he jumps -- but when he hears the telephone ring, he realizes he's not the last human on Earth after all?

nice guesses all around, but iamsarahsue got it! nice job, everyone! thanks for participating!
hey, general question, would y'all like a menu? like, to choose from if you win? Just wanted to know. OK, three foods for iamsarahsue, will PM you shortly! Yes, I was talking about the Twilight movie, I think it comes out on 12-12-08, not sure, but that seems right.
Next puzzle: A married couple goes to a movie, during which the husband strangles the wife, but he is able to get her body home without attracting attention. How? (three foods)
