    Ask Me Anything ...

    Martin, 1) Bingo. 2)You can't get more basic than a lever, But the screw is derived from the other basic machine.

    Ask Me Anything ...

    Still wrong on both, I'm afraid. Just because the Kilo's commonly referred to as a unit of weight, doesn't actually mean it is a unit of weight. It's a common misconception, Like how everyone refers to balance scales as a machine for measuring weight, even in the face of the contrary (which...

    Ask Me Anything ...

    Martin, Good job on the first one, but: 2 - The killogram is not a unit of weight 3 - Although they are called basic machines, they are made up of a mob of smaller machines & seem rather complex. When I say basic, I mean it literately.

    Okay, let's see here. Which family of quadruped, does not have a gall-bladder? What is the metric unit of weight? How many different types of basic machines are there?

    Can anybody tell me what is wrong with my stupid printer?

    Here are some possible things that could be the cause the problem. You're not yelling at it loud enough. You're using the wrong kind of hammer. Your threats towards it are not convincing enough. You're using the right kind of hammer, but it's too small. You don't have enough...

    PC or Mac?

    Commodore 64. Best system ever. Except for, maybe, the Amiga 500, with Pagesetter, the real windows.

    food anyone?

    I call hundreds-and-thousands "fairy s*#t", which is why I'm no longer a Mr Whippy.

    Favourite Myth

    You forgot to add the christian bible stories. Mostly a jumble of poorly translated & awfully dull writings, but it's not without its' interesting points, especially in Revelations.

    Oldest book you own?

    I gots this old book, made of Six 24-carat gold pages fastened together. The pages are covered with some kind of jibberish & pictures of a guy on a horse, a mermaid, a lyre and some mean lookin' guys with weapons. Some kind of saga, I guess. Had it looked at by couple of experts and they...

    Selling your books

    When I aquire books (or anything for that matter) that are not/no longer to my liking, I'll just give them to anyone who asks to borrow them. Making a persons day is worth far more than the money made from selling a book.

    food anyone?

    All my life, I've eaten the best food for next to nothing, because whenever I discover a really good meal, I'll find out how to make it myself, and from there, I'll be able to make small improvements here & there, like extra cheese, a few coffee beans or a small slab of heavily reduced turkey...

    Random traffic

    I reckon that if you used that set in a diner, you, or at least your cleaning staff, would curse the revolting habbits of humans at the end of every day. But at least kids'd think twice before sticking chewing gum under the table.

    Old Home Remedies?

    Allow the virus to take on it's full effect, then try to relax while your familly pampers you back to health. Then get a medical certificate to wave under your bosses nose when they ask where you've been for the past week.

    Scariest Book Ever?

    I don't think there's a book half as scary as what humans do to each other, somewhere on the planet, every single day.
