were you drunk when you started this thread???



Nope. How else would I have spelt all those words correctly? wink



Nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety seven green bottles sitting on a wall. If one green Atila the Hun rose from the dead and waged a one man war against the aforementioned green bottles until the Imperial Army of China killed him with a gun which Atila didnt see coming as they hadnt been invented when he was alive, there'll be nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand three hundred and eighty seven green bottles sitting on a wall....

Im impressed how hard it is to cut and paste, then do the correct maths so it all makes sence.... ubblol

Is it killing kittens? no
Is it smuggling drugs? no
Is it playing loud hitler speaches through the window of an apartment block at 1:00am? no

What harm is it doing?

Posted:it is breaking lots of glass, with no intention of cleaning it up mentioned... therefore if a poor kitten were walking past....

also, we are never told what is in the bottles... could be smuggled drugs....

also, if the wall were in an apartment block, and the bottles were of a large enough size and filled with varying amounts of liquid in the correct manner, and were hit at the correct speed, and the other noises created were quieted in a suitable manner, such a setup of a billion bottles could precisely recreate a hitler speach at 1:00am, and dependant on the force of striking, it could be quite loud...

therefore, we could very well be committing all these heinous acts with our simple play.

Would it not be better, seeing as this has a finite number it can go to before the thread is deleted, whereas the word asociation game, et. al will go on for ever.
umm



I reckon there are less than a billion words in the english language? or are you alowed to repeat youself? Then it's a stupid pointless game rolleyes

Nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and eighty six green and a blue one bottles sitting on a wall.
Nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and eighty six and a blue one green bottles sitting on a wall.
And one Blue bottle should accidently fall there'd be Nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and eighty six bottle sitting on a wall.

I reckon someone is right (I can't remember but but last time I pressed back I copied something by mistake and lost my hard mathsy calculations from the clipboard) and this thread is indeed genius. biggrin

*carefully counts*

Nine hundred and forty five thousand, six hundred and twenty three bottles still upright on the floor, Nine hundred and forty five thousand, six hundred and twenty three bottles still upright on the floor, And if one green bottle should accidently contain twelfty pounds of Semtex that wasn't detonated by either the bulldozer or Attilla the Hun, and then exploded because of the lensing effect of the sunshine off all that broken glass, there'll be seven hundred and eighty thousand, four hundred and eleven green bottles still sitting on the floor.
