    Lets see how much you guys know. I will start with a question, and then the person who answers it correctly (The asker will tell you if your correct) will post another question, and so on.

    If you place a sticker on a tree 6 inches from the ground, and the tree grows four inches a year, how far will the sticker have risen in 6 years?

    Wrong.

    The sticker will move...0 inches!!!

    Think of how a tree grows. It doesn't grow out from the ground it just keeps extending outwards from itself, so the sticker wouldn't move up.

    I nominate Frogger to go next.

    Yah, but, lyk, you gotta consider that the rain would have washed off the sticker and stuffs lyk that.

    ...Me? No, no, no. I'm an idiot.

    Ohh I've heard this one, it's a person.

    4 legs = baby crawling
    2 legs = adult
    3 legs = old person with walking stick

    I had a French supply teacher who did nothing but tell us these, he was great!
