Chade - Aha! A question that requires no thought at all....YES!


Milamber - Never fear, Milamber, dear.  Your "mispost", may have been a (freudian) slip, but I think it raised an important question which I nevertheless answered, because in my thread, I am as God.

I hope this helps.

To answer this question I must get a bit more technical than I usually would.

How can chloroform affect my health?

Breathing about 900 parts of chloroform per million parts air (900 ppm) for a short time can cause dizziness, fatigue, and headache. Breathing air, eating food, or drinking water containing high levels of chloroform for long periods of time may damage your liver and kidneys. Large amounts of chloroform can cause sores when chloroform touches your skin.

It isn't known whether chloroform causes reproductive effects or birth defects in people.

Animal studies have shown that miscarriages occurred in rats and mice that breathed air containing 30 to 300 ppm chloroform during pregnancy and also in rats that ate chloroform during pregnancy. Offspring of rats and mice that breathed chloroform during pregnancy had birth defects. Abnormal sperm were found in mice that breathed air containing 400 ppm chloroform for a few days.


I believe I've made my point...or have I? Could it be I just cut and pasted an answer that really doesn't make sense?

no...no, that can't be it. I'm still good.

Yeah  :elfgirl_smile:

What is the best and most cost efficient way of making a bunch of foam for my foam party (Bubbles everywhere in my garage)?

I contimplated mixing Hydrogen Peroxide with Soap in a catalyst, but from what my teacher says, it is poisonous if swallowed, so I need a new idea...

How many pecks of pickled peppers could a woodchuck chuck while dancing on the head of a pin?

Your teacher is a novice.  I have used the above mixture several times for my fetes, (using a highly flamable catalyst, I might add) and the skin irritation/bleeding from the eyes was MINIMAL.  For a more "potent" mixture of this type, I would suggest styrofoam and gasoline.  You'll love the smell, in the morning.

However, as this is a party will be held in the garage, I would suggest a concoction I invented while supervising the construction of modern grass huts for the village peoples of Chad.  I call it the "Puddin' Bomb".

5 to 6 Packages of Vanilla Pudding
5 to 6 Packages of Chocolate Pudding
1 Part Glitter
1 Part Glam
2-3 Members of Destiny's Child

Pour mixture into Stone Effigy. Shake vigourously. UNLEASH!

I hope this helps.

You know, only one person has asked me this question before:





I'll give you the same answer I gave her:

"GYAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!"


...I hope this helps.

I have a question specifically for Shifty:

How do I pick up girls like you?  Any advice on becoming a "player?"

I joined the chess club, but girls still don't dig my groove...

Ah, you know I love a history lesson. *clears her throat*

Take my hand as we journey back into ye olden days, as we harken back to the practices of old. A magical quest to the past.  You get my drift.

The olde tyme sign maker was more than just one who made signs: their fuction was multipurpose.  A sign maker was a marketer extrodinaire!  

If a sign maker was hired to "make a sign" for a shoppe, or pub(e), said sign maker would strip down to nothing but skins, ritualistically slay a sow, and completely immerse themselves in its blood.  Then, still naked and sopping with blood, they would dance  a merry jig and sing traditional tunes infront of their employers shoppe or service.  Patrons on the street took notice and loved the jolly entertainment (Being "Spattered" was an extra treat for the common folk!)  This brought the wanted attention to the shoppe and everyone was happy.

However, like hatters of the day, sign makers soon found themselves plagued by a mysterious illness, later dubbed "The Sign Makers Folly", which was characterized by a curious hunger for copious amounts of ham (the disease was later found to be caused by repeated immersions in the dirty blood of a sow.)  This disease always ended in the death of the sign maker.  Sign makers found themselves in a difficult position...sign making was good money...how were they to continue their profession and avoid the Folly?

Their solution to this problem is, in part, the solution to your question, Ashen: Helper Monkeys.  That's right...instead of making themselves the sign, they bred, raised and trained monkeys to do the dirty work for them.

Of course, today, we are an advanced civillization and we are against this sort of cruel practice.  Sign makers today use human slave labour!  And they are the people that write the catchy quotes on a striking signman's sign!

I hope this helps.

wow, that answer was more than I could of ever hoped for.

perhaps you could lay this question to rest for me, it has bugged me for quiet some time.
What color does a smurf turn when you choke it?

Well, we do aim to please :)  Spreading our infinte wisdom (and finite authority) is important to us, your new overlords.

Anyhoo...the Smurf question.

And what a question it is...I believe this falls into the relam of science.

First, we must hypothesize....how big is a smurf in comparison to the one that is choking said smurf?  In your query, Ashen, you intimated that *I* was the one doing the choking, so we shall go with that.

As a human female, I am of average size.  According to the show "The Smurfs", Smurfs were roughly...TEENY when compared to a average sized human being (i.e. Gargamel)  So with these measurements and known variables plugged in to our hypothesis, let us continue.

Let us imagine that I then began choking test smurf A.  I would have to use my thumb and pointer finger to retain a sufficient grip.  However, due to the unnaturally small stature of a smurf, I can assume that I would have trouble assesing how much pressure would be sufficient to merely CHOKE the smurf.  I can also assume that the pressure of my fingers would be beyond the pressure that an average smurf cranium could safely handle.  My hypothesis would conclude (after further investigation of average smurf physiology) that the sheer force of my fingers would violently pop the head off a smurf with little or no effort on my part.  

Therefore the answer to your question would be somewhere along the lines of "bluey-red". (as the insides of a smurf are just as pink as ours!)

I hope this helps.

[span style=\'color:blue\']Actually, the rumour has it that once choked, the smurf cannot smurf anymore so its smurf smurves to smurf and it disappears into thin air, which, being sometimes as blue as a smurf, hides everything from view !

Is that a satisfying answer?

In another forum we are having a debate as to which is the smallest english sentence.  One side says "Go" is, my pals and I say it is "I am."

Which is it?  They argue that the "You" in "Go" is understood.  I personally think "Go" is an interjection, thus making it not a sentence...

Oh MAN, lookit the Shifters laying the LAW down!  That deserves a pause, rewind repeat, if I may say so.

Milamber...I'm actually gonna take a shot at this one...

(from dictionary.com): A sentence is:  A grammatical unit that is syntactically independent and has a subject that is expressed or, as in imperative sentences, understood and a predicate that contains at least one finite verb.

In other words, a sentence, to gramatically be a sentence, needs a noun or pronoun (expressed or implied) a verb and it must be able to "stand alone".

I think "Go" could count. You is implied, go is a verb, and I believe it can stand on its own.

After thinking, I did a GIS and found this:

"Contrary to what you may have found doing an Internet search, the shortest English language sentence is not “I am.”  Follow along now—it does get technical.

“I am,” first of all, is not a sentence. An English sentence must have a subject / predicate relationship, and the key element in that relationship is the type of verb that creates the predicate. Verbs either show action or they do not.  Verbs without action, such as “am,” when used as a predicate, must have something to complete the meaning—a complement. So you “am” “something.”  “I am happy” is a sentence since “happy” is fulfilling the complement role. Therefore, “I am” is not a sentence.

The shortest English sentence is probably “Go.”   “Go” is an action verb and can be used in imperative mood, which means that it can be used with good, old “You Understood.”  So “Go” actually means “You go.”  On the other hand, if that interpretation doesn’t strike your fancy, let’s say that understood meanings are disallowed, then “I go” is the shortest sentence. “Go” doesn’t require a complement since it is an action verb nor does it require a direct object.  With a total of three letters—the same number as the illegal “I am” contender—“I go” should reign as the champion, unless someone out there knows of a single letter verb. (No fair pulling in Old English and foreign languages.)"


I hope this helps.

Okayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!  :dragon_red:

Then there's MY question :  :devil:

- Isn't "I" the shortest english sentence, since when asked "who did it", one can answer "I" understanding "I did" and many american people say so !

So now wanna joke with me with words?
