God did it is your answer, and you call that a logic problem? For shame, Rowan, for shame.


Well, logically, the answer has to be considered. Logic accounts for all possibility.

There is a possibility that ken worley is a 300 pound hermaphrodite who likes dressing up as a pink bunny.

If we were to do a logic problem concerning ken, we would have to account for this possibility, even though it is not a very likely one.

Well, actually, it is a VERY likely possibilty...I probably should have thought of a different example.

It is AN answer. Not THE answer. The other two are given as well.

Just killing time here, waiting for grim to post a question....
But did anyone else notice that the name "Zankou" can be anagrammed as
"Okanzu", which, as everyone knows, is a Japanese slang term which, though it has no literal English equivalent, can be roughly translated as ..."stag which climbs the rocks with the prettily swishing hip movements of the doe."

Using only two 2's and any combination of mathematical signs, symbols and functions can you make 5?

1+2+2

She said "only 2 2's" she didn't say how many other numbers. You used 4's and 6's and all sorts in your answer.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Who says "two 2's" instead of "2 2's"? Very sneaky!

Damn reading comprehension.

My bad.
