Posted:See, I like this one much better. You do a bit of lateral thinking and you come up with and answer and it's the right answer. With arsn's ones you say a word that only vaguely has something a bit to do with the original riddle and you win a VCR.

Truthfully, I enjoyed it so much when I first read it. I still love the book for what it meant to me back then. But I know many people who were bored to tears by it. R.

Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the books, perhaps I should??....but they are well a little hard to blunder through.I am going to go and hide now, just in case there are any projectiles that are about to be thrown at me by those LOTR fans who loved the movie and have read the book a million times.

Posted:I figured out why tim tams come in a packet of 11.

11 is a prime number, it can only be divided equally by the numbers 1, and 11.
Therefore only a family of 11 people can share them whithout someone missing out on the tim tam goodness. As no one (well no one i know) has a family of 11 people, it is a very clever marketing ploy.

oh and Cantus, i know you wouldn't get angry with me........i just like to cover all bases.......you never know when someone is going to snap and pull a switch blade on you

A: one ring to rule them all
one ring to find them
one ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
in the land of mordor where
the dark lord rules

Q: Why is Bra singular and Panties plural?

Q: Why do we cal them "a pair of pants" when there is just one piece of clothing?

This is a tough one as it is only commonly used to split something apart.

Some people ate the snacks though. And quite bizzarely, someone stole a cushion whilst i was in the kitchen.

Home of Poi is such an odd place sometimes.

I've just spotted a new trampoline by the way......
