    How long is a piece of string / Stupid Question of the day ?

    I pulled a piece of string (:o) out my printer today, no wonder it wasn't working !
    Anyhow, for your chance to win it, how long is this 18 1/2" length of string I have in my hand ?
    DOH !! :blush:

    Quite correct.

    And Ditto.

    Now I'll have to cut it in half to share the prize.
    Please P.M. me your bank a/c number, sort code, card security number and expiry date I can then deduct, oooh, shall we say £15 each from your bank accounts to cover postage, packing and handling of a few pints of Guinness.

    can we start a new thread please - stupid question of the day.

    At the school i work at i once asked a group of 'intelligent' 6th formers who wrote Beethoven's first symphony. When one of the girls in the group suggested "Beethoven?" the others all laughed!!!

    Went into a music shop once,
    I asked "How much are your penny whistles ?"
    "8 bob" replied the shop owner !!
