#65663 Is there an answer?

Posted by bookfloss on 07 March 2014 - 09:12 AM

The "right" answer would be B, but that's mitigated by the fact that choosing it would most likely go against the question itself. Since you're asked to pick at random, working the question out logically would make you fail regardless.


It is a good point AND I'm not positive any mitigation has to occur (though it might). I mean I think I get what you're saying & I do think this question is some kind of logical paradox. I mean why show us the answers or the number of answers if our selection occurs at random?


But no matter which choice is made or by what means that choice is made it will always be either right or wrong. That's 50%.


I don't know if that's the reasoning the quesioner is looking for, it's simply the reasoning I personally would offer. And, if my grade depended on that question, the teacher's car would have flat tires, a cup of sugar in their gas tank, & the end result of my gas station lunch on their hood & windshield. :P

Type in your name and it shows you how Travolta would have pronounced it at the oscars. :lol:

(Why should Idina get all the fun?)

#64754 QI (Quite Interesting)

Posted by bookfloss on 20 February 2014 - 10:35 AM

That was absolutely delightful.  :lol:  I can't believe I was actually mid-gulp on my normal scalding hot coffee at 18m 33s  - simultaneously hilarious & excurciating. :<_<:


25m 07s-ff thankfully I was not drinking or that might have ruined some equipment of mine.  :o


The ending was priceless. :P

#64243 How do you You Define Friend?

Posted by bookfloss on 10 February 2014 - 05:16 PM

Fresh from Mr Hibachi's a few minutes ago. Kinda makes things odd when you substitute our definitions for the word 'friend' & 'one'...    :unsure:




...furthermore, I'm not comfortable with my fortune containing 'have', 'friend', 'lucky', & 'horse' altogether & in that order.   :<_<:

#63570 Whil Wheaton "what is a nerd"

Posted by bookfloss on 30 January 2014 - 01:57 PM

I researched what occasion he said it at, and it was a convention...


...well how often does one get to feel as embarrassed as I do now? :blink:


My mistake everyone - I thought it was simply a letter to his daughter that he posted online.


*looks for giant rock to crawl under*

#63543 I feel like I don't belong on here...

Posted by bookfloss on 30 January 2014 - 09:28 AM

No nerd should ever be left behind - we all have a place here!  :)


(...and I have no idea what you're talking about mixing nerdy things with the porn industry...)







Posted by bookfloss on 29 January 2014 - 01:44 PM

Yes to be honest I'm deeply depressed at the moment, but... Right now I'm seeing a therapist in hoping to heal...


I just hope you don't leave us when you're feeling better. You're starting some of my favorite threads & pulling me out of my posting shell. 

*wriggles hands and paces before hitting the Enter key*

#53800 Real Suits of Armor... sweet

Posted by bookfloss on 27 August 2013 - 10:36 AM

I saw that armor and thought "Where's a friend who works airport security when you need one?" I would totally wear that on his shift just to mess with him.
