  • FUN: Answer the previous question, ask the next.

    So the concept is simple, you answer the previous persons question and ask the next question.

      You are supposed to answer the persons question above you, and ask the next question. For example:

      A: Because I wanted to.
      Q: What color is the sky?

      And it would keep going on like this
      hahaha

        I answered yours, and asked the next one.

        "Why not?" It surely is an answer to yours, and a question to everyone else.

              Because if we did, the time space continuum would be disrupted.

              Q: Why does the east coast favor the roto-rays and mars lights and the west coast favors the steady burn whereas the midwest favors neither?

                  It's because most trends start in the west and work east, so we will eventually have what the west has now, but by then, they'll be moved on to something new.


                  So, if you are driving 35 mph in a 55 mph zone, and you come into a 35 mph zone, is it neccessary to slow down?

                        Q:

                        Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs? Rabbits don't lay eggs.

                          The Easter Bunny is a rabbit-spirit. Long ago, he was called the" Easter Hare." Hares and rabbits have frequent multiple births so they became a symbol of fertility. The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that hares laid eggs in the grass.

                            Answer: It burns up because heat rises. It goes down because the Chiefs are trying to watch the fireground from the roof.

                            Question: Why doesn't the sun go around the earth?

                              Cause it can.

                              If you rented a movie and were late returning it and then you died would someone you knew or a family member have to pay the late fee?
