“Great Question” (8points)

I challenge you to play the internet challege game!

Here’s how to play:
Complete the previous jelly’s challenge and then make one of your own for the next jelly.

Rules of the challenge:
– The challenge must be able to be completed by using the internet or even your keyboard.
– The challenge cannot be too difficult or impossible. It can be something as simple as “type a four worded sentence backwards” or something as hard as finding a certain website or image.
– Do not go twice in a row.

The internet has practically an infinite amount of information, use it to your advantage and be creative!

Some challenge examples:
– Find an image of a bunny with a pancake on its head.
– Make a two line rhyme.
– Find a website with information about jellyfish.
– Tell me how to change to the pirate language on Facebook.

For images, just link to them. If you don’t know how go here and find the Link section.

Write the next challenge in morse code using ”.” and ”-” for dots and dashes.

gailcalled's avatar

@nisse: The women’s shirt is listed as 100% cotton also, but there is lycra in it; the site simply neglects to mention that fact, which makes ordering a crap shoot.

bobbinhood's avatar

I’m putting a line between words and an apostrophe between letters for clarity. I’m also changing dashes to d since Fluther makes strikethroughs when you use too many dashes.

Apparently my ability to spell goes in the ditch when I try to do morse. Sorry about that.

@bobbinhood No problem. I think we all still understood it. It is a pretty useless skill I have.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

The average Russian consumes almost three times as much alcohol as he did 16 years ago. A report by Gennadi Onishenko, head of the consumer protection agency, found that Russians drink 15 litres (26 pints) of pure alcohol per year, or half a pint a week, compared with 5.4 litres in 1990.
For a bonus:
Annual alcohol consumption, litres per head

uʍop ǝpısdn ʇxǝʇ ǝɥʇ ɥʇıʍ sɯǝod

The official plant of brazil may be Tabebuia alba/Yellow Ipê (source) although blurtit suggest something named “Mao schlumbergera” without sourcing it (source)

Describe how banana reproduce.

erichw1504's avatar

@nisse Thanks for helping @roundsquare out.

Banana plant is a gigantic herb that grows from an under-ground stem ( rhizome),and forms a false trunk with leaves. There emerges a large flower spike, with numerous individual flowers, that bends downward to become fruits. After the plants had fruits, they die and are replaced by others that arise from the underground stem, and that process can keep on going for many years.

Find an image of the CEO of Facebook with sandals on.

nisse's avatar

@erichw1504 That’s how banana grow, they actually reproduce asexually, by being spliced onto other types of tree trunks by banana farmers. All banana we eat are actually genetically identical, or one single cloned individual. It’s all very fascinating, but ill accept your answer. :)

@gailcalled I had a cat like that. He required a bath first, which made him catatonic…then I could clip him on my own ;)

gailcalled's avatar

@SpatzieLover: Bath? BATH? I would surmise that the only activity more difficult than cutting a cat’s nails would be bathing him.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@gailcalled I don’t know why, but for that cat it worked. After about 2 mins in water, he’d just turn off the fight. I have one other cat that does the same…my other two fight water, but not nail clippings. Go figure.
