That won't work. The extra push you need to throw the ball into the air adds to your weight adn would break the bridge.
That's why it's not safe.

It'd work BORED Chemist, it'd and is safe too [^] [^] [^]

What's the least number of chairs you would you need around a table to sit four fathers, two grandfathers, and four sons? ;)

No cheating SeanB >:(

No cheating, but it would be 4 chairs. 2 grandfathers, and 2 to seat 2 of their male children who also have children. Fits all of the requirements - there are the 2 grandfathers, the 4 fathers ( 2 are grandfathers) and of course they are all somebody's sons.



Demografix, I did check lost&found, but there were some files in there that belong to "root" only, and not me. I am still missing a brain cell, the other one is getting lonely.

Er, not heard SeanB (or anyone) called that before...
Out of interest urbandictionary.com left me with a more disturbing image for that phrase :o

Ignoring that Australia cannot be defined as an island - Australia was as big before it was discovered (by a European in the case given). If it's the biggest of anything I'm betting single country.

This was a question on the radio this morning, and Omid is currently residing there, in the lovely British Island, made up of England, Wales and Scotland.

Demographix, the other brain cell belongs to a certain dove that I am hand rearing, as it was evicted from it's nest. Lovely little bird, called B5, a continuation of the series of flying rats I have brought up to the point of kicking them out into the wild again.

I think Omid is confusing her second language again, I am not a male chicken who cuckolds the henhouse.

Thank you Imatfaal :)

A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him? ;)

Good news about B5 is that it was released a few weeks ago in a semi rural area near Greytown, hopefully to a full life.

I know chameleons can do so, very nice they are, but rather rare here.

I do think the answer is still twelve, though.


Mayhaps the other is an insect or an arachnid, both have large compound eyes, so they probably can see 360 degrees.

If the clock just chimed then it won't chime again in 10 seconds, it will chime in about quarter of an hour.

In one I am two, observed or cut.
In two I am one, on high or in pain.
But in all three ways,
I sound just the same.
