So, if the questions are "jokes" then can you spot the error in the question posted above that I'm re-posting for you?

Find a 4 digit number in which the 1st digit is 1/5th the last, and the 2nd and 3rd digits are the last digit multiplied by 3.

Spot the error in the question and solve it showing the working steps.

You are just free to be you.
rabbee: well i am a lot better informed from G-D, than any one is willing to give me credit for. and i gave up a lot of mental tolerance, when i accepted who G-D came and said i am.

and i have never been, free to be me. i have no effect, on my own destiny in TheTorah so far. the only chance i may have to do that, is when G-D takes off for the day of rest soon.

there ain't nothing happening here, that has not happened any different than the last two times. G-D has given this exact same story, with all the exact same talking critters claiming to not be here in IT.

the last two time, this worlds grandmother ran off with mr lizard lips. and she just, did it again. it't like i have no effect, on what she thinks she chooses to do. since this is the way, this story always goes, for this world not true to G-D here in TheTorah. and i wished you all, would all quit doing! that.

There is nothing moot about my points. One does not practice to become a SEED or offspring of Israel.
Do you practice to become a offspring of your mother or grandparents?
Your point about being true to God is key and valid.
it is irrelevant who is or is not, a seed of Ysrael. the only thing that is relevant is who is or is not, true to G-D here in TheTorah in the now happening.

and according to G-D, i don't have any actual biological grandparents. i only have, THE HOO VHEE PARENT and TheSurrogate Vessel to get here.

no body can enter physically into this world, without at least having a Surrogate Mother. the minimum requirement, you have to have a Mother. so don't worry if you get confused, trying to figure this out. or that some how, i had two Mothers running around at the same time. the one from 2000 years ago, and the one for this period in time.

so now i can only practice to be, The-Offspring of my YE HOO VHEE PARENT.

The same guys that are overly paranoid about a gun registry are collecting data from third parties about who might own guns and might want to be members. Now that's irony.
The profit motive trumps their ideals.

Like when the tea baggers held up signs at their rallies:

"Get your gov't hands of my Medicare!!"

Not very bright bunch. Not Mensa material!

HughBe---God made nothing flawed. Why do you consider your ability to choose as a FLAW? Explain.
Being gay is not a choice or what people do.

It is who they are.

If you don't understand this you will be lost
on this subject and perhaps others.

You need to open your mind.

Do not believe everything your preacher and
your "sacred" texts tell you.

This for yourself, if possible.

Herein lies the problem for most religionists. They either don't accept the fact that it is not a choice to be gay, or if they do, they expect gay people to refrain from sexual activity.

As usual, Huggy is being pedantic. He does not recognize lowercase god. Try the question again with uppercase (as if that should make a difference when referencing an imaginary being).

What they should be a social group? Since little they felt to be different from the most people. The thoughts of ordinary people are ridiculous, for them. Maybe because of their high IQ they were treated bad at school. They prefer to stay with their similars, and share/discuss thgeir intellectual idea without problems and misunderstanding and very fast. All things quite hard to realize with ordinary people. I understand them.
Thinking "the thoughts of ordinary people are ridiculous" is smug and ridiculous in itself.

As Dickens said, "Mankind is our business!"

Statements such as yours sound elitist in the worst way. Not admirable but beneath scorn.

You sound so low you could walk under a snake with a high hat on.

I believe you only understand them because you were treated badly at school.

Here the majority of people eat between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Those few who eat at 10 p.m. or later are the ones who are going to restaurants but are a bit late because they were waiting some friend(s) who usually are not in time.
Here only children eat at 6:30 p.m.
Here children and old people eat very early.

When I said, "But Mom, in Rome they don't go out to eat until much later," my 80-year-old mother replied, "Well, you're not in Rome!"

Not much I could say to that.
