Since the fad's making a roaring return, I may as well answer the two users' unanswered questions in that long-passed blog and take new questions.

Mijzelffan's question
What country are you rooting for in the fifa world cup?

I didn't really root for anyone in FIFA, considering that soccer bores me. You can call me neutral in this case.

Phoenicks' many ridiculous questions
If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

Green bricks, I assume.

If you were a pilot 40 years into the past, back when East Germany and West Germany were seperate entities, and 2 out of your 3 engines began to fail and you decided to make a crash landing that coincidentally happened to be on the no man's land between East and West Germany, where would you bury the survivors, assuming that half of your passengers were from East Germany and that half were American, and that you were flying to West Germany?

I'm... not sure I have anything close to an answer for such a question. When I first read this, one word escaped my lips: "Yikes."

If there are 10 black socks, 10 white socks, and 10 gray socks in a drawer, what is the minimum number of socks you must pull out to obtain a pair?

2, by some ridiculously slim chance.

If a rope ladder is hanging off the side of a boat, being 12 feet long with intervals of 1 foot between each rung, how long will it take for them to become submurged underwater if the sea is rising at a rate of 6 inches per hour?

A full day, or 24 hours.

How many times can you subtract the number 7 from the number 7000?

So many math questions... good thing I'm a whiz on the subject. Now, the answer. It's so obviously 1,000.

What is another name for the sister-in-law of your father's only brother?

Your mother, maybe? I ran though this twice, to make sure.

In the sentence "Final Files Are The Result Of Years Of Scientific Study With The Experience Of Years", how many F's are there?

I counted 'em. 6.

What is the maximum number of times you can fold a newspaper in half by hand?

A full newspaper? I suppose I'd struggle at 4 and stop there.

Is it legal for a man to marry his widow's sister?

I'll answer the question with a question of my own, as well as answer to my question. Is it possible? I say no. The words "his widow" suggest he's dead. A dead man can't marry anyone, or even move.

What do you sit on, sleep on, and brush your teeth with?

Wow. Another question I can't answer. I can only think of a toothbrush that you brush your teeth with, and you don't usually sit or sleep on a toothbrush.

Are you mad that I gave you a bunch of trick questions?

Yes and no. Yes from the lack of seriousness in this. But mostly no, due to:

A. the questions giving me an otherwise pitiful load.
B. this being something to pass the time.

Now, fire away, peeps. Give me some questions to answer.
