Random Question(s)

Fri Oct 08, 2010 8:58 pm

Sometimes, a question just pops into your head and you can't ask anyone.

Well, now you can - in this thread!

So here's one: How many burning chameleons can a circus clown juggle?

Up to four, if he is ready to ditch his regular gloves for oven mitts.

And, of course, only until PETA catches wind of it.
After that, he'll share the pain of the chameleons.

Hm. Unless of course it rains. He'd have to increase the number so they'll keep each other warm, which is when it all starts to go wrong.

What if you're playing it while cycling? Or underwater?

Why are flaps called flaps if flaps don't flap?

I just switched on the radio, and what should it be playing? "We Didn’t Start the Fire", of course.

I've been wondering about that ever since I saw this.

It was a nude circus. As such, posting a pic would violate this website's TOS.

Furthermore, there were plenty of swastikas (including tatoos) and other Nazi paraphernalia at said event. This could create issues for viewers located in locales which have laws against the dissemination of such images.

Just use black bars to cover up the naughty bits!

Not a problem covering these up either!

So?

Great topic. I have always wonderred why the flaps of the Russian Ekranoplans extend way over 90 degrees. I have never seen this on a regular plane. Doesn't that waste the benefits of flaps?

Perhaps it's because "pT" would be too reminiscent of a horrible car made by Chrysler.
