  • I'm smarter than a 5th grader

    i was watching this show last night and for the first 40 minutes i got all the answers right. my 4th grade daughter was stumped a lot and she's a straight A student.

    it was a fun show.

    We were watching that too......after I thought about the "How many moons does Mars have?" question (because I got it wrong like the contestant did) I realized that it was newer information and I didn't feel bad.
    It was a cool show though, I agree.

        OK, I'll bite...
        still just 2, or did we gain another one (or two or three?)??

            Phew.
            I was starting to feel the entire universe quiver there, thinking there might be a new emotion circling Mars... if "fear" and "panic" are already in place, what comes next?


            I was afraid it might be "driveshaft breaks!"

              If are system was anything like the metic system you would think 100ft. in a mile.
              But I guess 5280ft is easier to remember!?!?

                5,281 to be exact.

                You 4th grader, you!

                  You 4th grader, you!

                  then you must be a drop out cause there's 5,280.

                  EDIT: 1 mile = 1,760 yards = 5,280 feet.

                    Naw, I'm still in the second grade.

                    I could have sworn I learned this as 5,281... but MS and other table converters are showing it 5,280.


                    Wonder what else I've forgotten while I was on my way to becoming a mouse potatoe!?!

                      Who's the 4th grader now Tom? haha

                      If your measuring that distance in feet then it doesnt really matter which one I guess. 6 or half a dozen

                        I won't be in the 4th grade for 8 more years, 'cause I'm in the second grade now!

                        Maybe if I get advanced placement, I can be in the 3rd grade in 2 more years!

                        (mutters to himself... can't believe I was that dang dumb. unbelievable!)

                        edit: but it still bugs me what number I've managed to get mangled in memory. Oh well, with all the passwords, encryption keys, and everything else I have to remember, I am lucky to know my own home address. and I can almost never remember my license plate number either.
