I did not want to scare him. Are you aware that certain bushmen have no number bigger than 4? Yes, they count one, two, three, 4, many...

That reminds me of some jungle tribes that I've heard about that have no words for colours other than white, blue, green and red (I think those are the colours, thiugh it may be another combination...).

A super car? One that can be used in space. The aliens do not like us in space. We are more or less confined to earth.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

bobbym's age is one of the great puzzles of the forum.  He has been variously 6 years old and 96.  He is often somewhere in between.

There is a puzzle, set by phrontister, that is supposed to reveal bobbym's age.  I do not know how phro knows this information; that has never been revealed; but bobbym has never said that phro doesn't so .....

As far as I know no one apart from phro can solve this puzzle, even bobbym, and he knows the answer!!!!!!

If you wish to have a go there are several posts about it and it is here:

Re: How old are you bobbym?

I think the range,is betwwen 35-100.We know he is at least 35 because he said "I forgot my age since 35...." and at least 100 is the max. because most human live around 100.If I knew when he joined the forum,I might get a estimate......

Phrontister, may in fact know my age. How he discerned it I do not know. Yes, his puzzle is still too tough.

I might get a estimate......

There are no estimates anywhere. There are many false leads.

Ahhhh, I get it. That is why he tricked me into giving that date. Bob bundy has established a lower bound.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

And I know that you were born on a 3rd of July and that that date was on a Sunday. That rules out about 10/11 years of the 20th century
