The sum of the numbers 854,  917,  610 and 320 equals 2701, which is Congressís serial number for next yearís Intelligence Authorization Act.
Please don't get Kaballah on us  ???

This act involves the public disclosure (finally!) that scientists have been in contact with Klingons ... and that alien technology is responsible for bringing us ... Chucky movies ...


So the Klingons brought us the Chucky movies?
Then who brought us the Star Trek Reality TV show?

It's the way Klingons count:
8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0

(I won't give the answer here, but it was E-Z!)


I only have a smattering of Klingon, but I think your E-Z code in Klingon would be Ö 2 8 9 6 4 10 0 7 5 1 3

0 pagh
1 wa'
2 cha'
3 wej
4 loS
5 vagh
6 jav
7 Soch
8 chorgh
9 Hut
10 maH

A certain crime is punishable if attempted but not punishable if committed. What is it? ;)

That suicide riddle is almost 50 years out of date (in the UK) ...

Quote
The Suicide Act 1961 (9 & 10 Eliz.2 c.60) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It decriminalised the act of suicide so that those who failed in the attempt would no longer be prosecuted.

According to my calculator 42! is 51 digits long.

Omid, the number 42 is a reference to this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy
in which a race of inteligent aliens build a massive computer to establish "the answer to life, the Universe, and everything".
It takes millions of years and eventually announces that the answer is "42".
Unfortunately, it doesn't know what the question is.

Incidentally is "attempted suicide" also punishable in such places where suicide is?

Omid is sorry BORED Chemist but she couldn't even catch a word of the above, everything passed on the head of omid. :(
it is may be becasue omid is not as intelligent as BORED Chemist

While we are on the subject, when I first saw this photo I initially thought it was something from fashion week  :)




Quote
A man has been arrested in Norway for attempting to smuggle snakes about his person in a case that has brought a very literal meaning to the term "trouser snake".

The Norwegian had 14 royal pythons and 10 albino geckos concealed under his clothes as he disembarked from a ferry in Kristiansand, south Norway. He had also concealed a tarantula in his bag. Customs officials who found the spider in its unorthodox lair decided to search the man, discovering the scale of the offence.

Air. (The part a bird needs to stay in the sky, and by nature, air as a gas can't get wet - discounting humidity)
