None, he shot the petrol station guy, filled his own car up, went home and whapped himself dry.
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Enough to fill all of Fidel's lawn bags!
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Bollocks. Now I have to come up with a question. :/

A man lives in the penthouse of an apartment building. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and leaves the building. Upon his return, however, he can only travel halfway up in the lift and has to walk the rest of the way - unless it's raining. What is the explanation for this?

(Real answer, he's a midget or some shit.)

This was one of the first questions posted in the thread....

Example:

Situation: Every day, a man takes the elevator down from his apartment in the 20th story of a tall building. When he comes home, he takes the elevator up to the 17th floor, and walks the last 3 floors up to his apartment, except when it's raining, in which case he will take the elevator all the way up. Why is this?

(standard answer: He's a short person, and can't reach the elevator button. However, when it's raining, he has his umbrella)

So technically Torp already wins that round! gj Torp!

It was just an example question and Torp is the only one who has answered it. The purpose of the thread is to provide an answer that is different from the standard one so Torp can't win with that answer.

Well untill torp asks one, party out with this one

Mel Colly stared through the dirty soot-smeared window on the 26th floor of the office tower. Overcome with depression he slid the window open and jumped through it. It was a sheer drop outside the building to the ground. Miraculously after he landed he was completely unhurt. Since there was nothing to cushion his fall or slow his descent, how could he have survived?
