Friday Fix #29 - Meet Naomi!

Friday, October 22, 2010

The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory rule (you can't get out of it!) - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, send me an email, and let me know! So, without further ado, here is Naomi from Supernatural Bookworm!

The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn't grow in them?

Hmm well to work that one out you would have to work out how much water each sponge holds and then add then spread that out over the current ocean depth and presto...the true depth of the ocean lol I would most definitely need a calculator for that one, my brain doesn't do very well with big numbers lol But my last attempt is..double? LOL

2. What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

Right you can never be scared to death even if you are scared half to death twice because;

1st time scared 1/2 to death = Half of 1 = 0.5
2nd time scared 1/2 to death = Half of 0.5 is = 0.25
3rd time scared 1/2 to death = Half of 0.25 = 0.125
4th time scared 1/2 to death = Half od 0.125 = 0.0625
5th time scared 1/2 to death = Half of 0.0625 = 0.03125
6th time scared 1/2 to death = Half of 0.03125 = 0.015625

So on and so forth so basically each time you are scared half to death, it only takes half away from what you have left which then halves it again and again. Only time you can be scared into death is if you are scared totally to death =)

3. What do sign-makers put on their signs when they go on strike?

Um...weightless status giving the 'V' sign? LOL That's what I would do haha!

4. Why isn't "phonetic" spelled the way it sounds?

Because whoever created this word had it in mind that they brainier than everyone else and wanted to spell words a different way to trip others up. How nasty! LOL But don't you find that any word you look at and say it out loud, it begins to sound and look wrong?

5. Can there be such a thing as a one-way, dead-end street?

Great Question. I have always wondered this myself.

Haha I don't know but I think it would totally confuse me if I went down a one way dead end street. I think I would probably turn around and go back the way I came haha or stop the car and not move and leave my car there until I figured out a way around it.

  2. As you know I always love your Friday posts. I think my favorite was the Scared Half to Death! LMAO! I was cracking up so bad thinking about the logic of Naomi's answer and a "OMG, why didn't I think of that?!". I will be sharing that. Excellent!
