This is an idea I got after reading one of those math problems, where you're supposed to figure out the distribution of animals based on how many legs there are... Blugh, word problems.

Fortunately for Bobskunk, it's a fairly easy problem, but for some reason the teacher doesn't like that answer.

    Hahaha! I love the two Bobheads making out in the back there. I expect the murring and purring is enough to register on the Richter scale.

    Something is wrong with me. I just immediately wanted to figure out what the "right" answer was.
    (it's 27 birds and 16 skunks by the way)

    ...I like your answer better.

      Haha yeah! I was wondering if anyone was going to figure it out. x)

        I am just that sort of person who likes to actually do the calculations on things!

      Pretty simple when you figure that it's two linear equations. x is skunks, y is birds. x+y=43 and 4x+2y=118. These can be converted to y=-x+43 and y=-2x+59. Then you just set it up. -2x+59=-x+43. Simplifying, you get x=16. Plugging in for x, you get y=43-16, y=27

        Well, yes. I just did that o.o

    The fun factor on this is a 9.5. Makes me laugh! At that moment, someone calls from the living room to me saying: "What are you laughing at? Sounds like there's three of you giggling in there!" NOW this is even more funny! :D

    Isnt it just 43? Birds doesnt count as animals, do they?

    • Link

      Not sure if serious... >__>

  • Link

    I can tell what's wrong there... :p
    You're missing one more skunk at least...

    Haha, awesome. :D My fave Bobhead is the one just gazing wistfully/dreamily upward. :}

    Also, about the person who commented that 'birds don't count as animals', if they ARE serious (could be a joke, as you suspected), it might be this weird thing I've run into with a few people where they mentally class only mammals as being 'animals', or something, and then thinking of birds and fish and bugs as other realms onto their own.

    It's related to thinking of "meat" as just meat from mammals (which are the only true animals, in their head, I guess?), and thinking of eating meat from a fish as just 'eating fish' and not meat even though it's the flesh of an animal and therefore meat, right? But they class fish as their own thing so fish meat isn't real meat, to them. :P

    Same thing with eating turkey or chicken and not thinking of that as MEAT, either. I discovered this when an older guy I worked with talked about wanting to eat meat but not being able to.. or rather advised against it by his doctor, and I think we talked about alternatives, like fish or poultry and I was like.. "well that's meat too" and he said they weren't and... I learned of this odd mental landscape for classification some people have.

      Yeah, I realized after I responded, I think a lot of people think that mammal means animal. Birds are pretty solidly in the kingdom animalia!

    This is super cute and sexy.

    Aaaaaa. This one still cracks me up. <3

    It's wonderful, bird. Thank you!

      You're certainly welcome! :>

    Next week, exponents!

    gets a front row seat for you two taking the test <3

    This is a discriminatory question.
