Re: Look at tihs!

I saw taht on a seicnce pgmramroe on the tivoeielsn! Vrey odd idened.

While we're on about science and letters, count the number of F's in this paragraph:

One funny Friday, fifteen people flew to Fellgate zoo. Frankly, a few of the people found out that five of the animals were feeling ill. They thought it was cruel and demanded their full money back.

Brainiac? I've seen the f's thing before, so I won't say.

Yes! I watched the whole series! I never missed an episode! I forwarded an idea for an experiment, and they replied about two months later and said it would go forward for testing, but I never got any more messages from them after that.

Well, it must have been a good one if it even got that far! What was it?

Re: Look at tihs!

Do adults have more stamina than children? Was my question. I told them that my dad always complained that children had more youth and were more energetic, but all athletes are adults.

Re: Look at tihs!

I think all athletes are adults because children are restricted by school. Also, the training needed to become an athlete is probably quite dangerous on a child's developing body.
Children are only more energetic because they want to be. Adults are quite capable of running around, as the athletes prove, but the majority of them would much rather fall asleep in front of gardening programmes.

Edit:

I rest my case.

Re: Look at tihs!

LOL !

But that is such a good point.

Go on a picnic, and who runs around the most?

But start packing up, who ends up doing all the hard work?

Re: Look at tihs!

is it 12, sorry if i spoilt it for everyone elsebut i gotta know if i missed some out, and i saw the letter thing all over the internet, google archemides and you get some mind bender things, its cool.

lungs grow when ur older, that helps, the wind pipe grows, that helps, you have had more life of activity, that helps, the only thing that stopps someone below 40 from running as far is state of mind. it is phycosymatic ( look it up)
edit:i might have spelt it wrong

Re: Look at tihs!

The letters thing got posted quite a while ago, so don't worry about spoiling it.
Plus, it's not 12, so you didn't anyway. big_smile

I think it's psychosomatic.
