    First person to answer all of these correctly will get the TD's.

    1. Even when starving polar bears will not eat penguin eggs. Why?

    2. I travel to all the corners of the globe yet remain in only one. What am I?

    3. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you would find the letter "A"?

    4. This breaks the moment it is uttered. What is it?

    5. Who killed one quarter of mankind?

  2.

    Check out the big brain on Brak! (and probably the huge wallet now)

    Correct.

    Quick explanation of #5:

    Cain killed his brother Abel. They were the sons of Adam and Eve. These were the first 4 people on Earth (no religious debate please) so by killing Abel Cain did away with 1/4 of the population.

    Do you mind telling me how you got the answers?

    1. I'm a discovery channel dork from way long ago, and with a little bit of assistance I confirmed they don't live in the same region.

    2. Heard it before

    3. Just counted it out, one through nine, then twentry through ninety, then one hundred... blah blah blah. It doens't take as long as you'd think

    4. Heard it before

    5. After my first guess I was thinking about how a small portion of the population could have accounted for 1/4, so I thought about the bible..

    Good job. Inspired thinking on the Cain question. Why did I give all my TD's away though?

    Keep watching for the next post...

    Well done Brak! Beat me to it!

    An elaboration about the quarter bit: The black death killed a quarter of EUROPE'S population, not mankind.

    Other interesting 1/4 wipeouts: http://www.fact-index.com/p/pa/pandemic.html

    Another one I was thinking about was something like heart disease or cancer. Surely they will qualify as killing a sizable proportion of humanity? Anyone got numbers?

    Also, did you know that a quarter of the world's population lives in poverty? I didn't till now!

    Why did I give all my TD's away in such a silly manner?

    Well let me explain in a Dear John letter to WDF:

    Dear WDF,

    By the time you read these words I'll be gone. I've been meaning to tell you this for a while now but it's never seemed to be the right time and I've never been good in situations like this.

    we've been together for what seems like a forever but there are times when people and forums just need to move on and find different members and communities. It's not you, it's me. Don't be upset, there are plenty more members out there and you're a lovely forum. I have enjoyed my time with you and your friends the moderators have treated me well.

    I suppose that after that honeymoon period I just got bored. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret anything that we have done together but I just need more now. More inspiration, more excitement, I need to be free to travel the Superhighways with nothing to hold me back.

    I must ask you not to blame your father for this. I know he and I never saw eye to eye but I have never held that against you and maybe one day he'll soften and allow you the freedom to grow into the community you so richly deserve to become.

    I must go now. This is the last you will hear from me. We must both make a clean break and start our lives afresh.

    Always in my mind,

    Mossoi.
