Eh, silly "question".

Here's for a real question:

There is a big group of people on a field and they randomly get assigned hats, either blue or red ones. They can not see what colour hat they are wearing and they are not allowed to communicate in any way with the others. No gestures, no pointing, no nothing. How can they devide so that all of the red ones are on one side of the field and the blues are on the other side?
I love logic problems, however I feel with this one that I am not getting enough information to determine the answer.
It could be either that you accidently left out information, or that the answer is so simple that my brain has over looked it by looking for a more complex answer. (example: lol)
I am curious to see the answer.

While there is mention of the tree exploding, there is no mention of how, unless you assume that the bomb is inside the tree.
However the location of the bomb is not specified, therefore you cannot assume that it is anywhere near the tree OR a banana at all.

What also is not stated is the size of the explosion the bomb would cause, the explosion may or may not be big enough to take out the tree, the monkey, and the banana.
And if the bomb is NOT inside the tree, then the tree, instead of exploding at worst would either fall over or catch on fire... if you assume the the explosion is large enough to do so from where ever the bomb is.
There is also no information stating that the bomb will indeed go off. It could be a dud. It is set to go off, yes... but it could be faulty and not explode at all.

There is no information in the question that tells you a banana is anywhere within the monkey's range. The monkey could be on an island that has no bananas... and if that were the case, the monkey would then either have to swim elsewhere to find the banana or be brought a banana.

If a bomb is set to go off...

And a monkey is climbing a tree...

How long does the monkey have to get a banana before the tree explodes?

megaman would be hard to fit into smash bros unless they gave him abilities from baddies in previous megaman games.
His biggest strength in his games were that once he defeated a boss, he gained their abilities... you can't technically do that in smash bros since the other characters aren't robots and don't have the chips he needs to take their abilities.

Megaman without extra abilities sucks :(
Sure, you could put him in just as normal megaman, with all his own abilities maxed out, but then he's just a weaker version of samus.

Meh, just because someone can draw a picture of an ape and then modify it a little bit, copy that, modify it some more, rinse and repeat doesn't mean that it actually happened. It's a theory and that's it, it doesn't make it proof. I have not seen any real skeletons that show proof of evolution, then again... even if i did, I wouldn't have the education to study the skeleton(s) thoroughly and say that they are indeed not related to humans.
As we have seen in the present day, pretty much anywhere you look, there are people that have been born with birth defects, it is very possible that if archaeologists found a skeleton that scientists deemed to be a stage in the human evolutionary scale, that that person just had a birth defect of some sort.

Yeah, according to theories of evolution, it may be an extremely slow process, but also according to scientists, earth has been around for billions of years... and yet, there is no evidence of any other species on this planet of ever evolving anywhere near where we are at in life today. You would think being that earth is that old, that there would have been at least one other race of sentient beings that have lived here before us, or that during our evolution we would have encountered species of animals on our planet evolving to a point of sentience.

If there were sentient beings that evolved here on earth before us, there would be evidence of their presence. There is none.
Also, if we evolved from apes... why are apes still around? Why haven't the rest of them evolved along side us? Why don't we see evidence of apes evolving since we've started recording history? Did apes just stop evolving after the first few completely evolved into what we are today?

but I just can't fathom why people, especially large numbers here in America, choose to deny scientific theories, like Evolution with theology as their back up.

From Merriam-Webster's Online dictionary:
Main Entry: the·o·ry
Pronunciation: 'thE-&-rE, 'thir-E
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -ries
Etymology: Late Latin theoria, from Greek theOria, from theOrein
1 : the analysis of a set of facts in their relation to one another
2 : abstract thought : SPECULATION
3 : the general or abstract principles of a body of fact, a science, or an art <music theory>
4 a : a belief, policy, or procedure proposed or followed as the basis of action <her method is based on the theory that all children want to learn> b : an ideal or hypothetical set of facts, principles, or circumstances -- often used in the phrase in theory <in theory, we have always advocated freedom for all>
5 : a plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena <the wave theory of light>
6 a : a hypothesis assumed for the sake of argument or investigation b : an unproved assumption : CONJECTURE c : a body of theorems presenting a concise systematic view of a subject <theory of equations>
Science as I see it, is man's study and understanding of what God made. The thing with science is, every time we turn around a "theory" or something that scientists have seen as fact becomes proven wrong by other scientists. Science is not perfect and I believe alot of scientists are fools and have possibly unknowingly screwed up their studies.
One example of my belief about science is carbon dating. I don't believe it is anywhere near as accurate as scientists believe it is. I don't think that they factor in everything that has happened over the hundreds or thousands of years since the item they're trying to date was created. They probably don't think about all the effects whatever they're dating has gone through from weather changes to being exposed to a fire or certain chemicals.
This is just my opinion on carbon dating, but anyways there are just too many flaws in science. As hard as they may try and say that humans evolved from lower life forms, there is no way to prove it actually happened. If evolution had infact happened, don't you think the drawings on cave walls thousands of years ago might look a bit different? or that we would see other creatures evolving into higher life forms with a significant amount of intelligence?

Even the Catholic church have ADMITTED to certain hiccups of the bible (for example, the ordeal with the "Red sea" being parted, when a mistranslation showed it to be the "Reed Sea" which tends to shallow to walkable levels during certain parts of the year...).
I haven't read my Bible in a while, but didn't the sea end up swallowing up some of the Pharaoh's army that were chasing the Israelites?? Also, I don't believe it said that the water was "shallow".


Exodus 14:16  But lift up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
King James Version

Thank you for making me pick up my Bible, it's been over a year since i read it. :)

I will not speak for the museum, I've never been there and I didn't read more than 3/4 of that story about it.

Also, if we're going by Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Link has a cape/cloak that makes him invisible doesn't he? Then he could just sneak up on MC and get him when his guard is down.
Don't forget that Link also has bombs in his arsenal as well, so he can be just as deadly as MC if he played his cards right.

Panda, Gil... Enough of this.
Take it to pms, quit poisoning the community with your drama, we don't want it.
I don't care who started it, or what else either of you think you need to say, you can both keep it to pms if you really feel either of you need to say something.

Any who, Xion I've seen some leaked photos of Heath Ledger as Joker...They look aight, I guess, but I'm more afraid as how he'll portray him...(gonna' be tuff to beat that staple of a job, by Jack Nicholson...)
From what I heard, the guy knows (or knew) absolutely nothing about the Joker, never saw the first batman movie, never read the comics.
It's amazing that he got the job. Jack was perfect as the Joker imo.

It wouldn't hurt to postpone the demo a week. Take a look at Blizzard, they postpone releases of pretty much anything to make sure that they release a quality product.
Whether it's a minor patch, major patch, beta, expansion, or a first release.
If you can get those custom keys set up quickly once your coder gets back, then it shouldn't hurt.
I would say to talk with him and figure out how long he thinks it will take to set them up. If it is going to take too long then go ahead and release the demo and then update it whenever the custom keys are done.

@Stwelin: I thought I heard the series was over? *shrug* I don't really pay attention to the Sopranos, never watched it.
