I was standing next to the Grand Canyon the other day, wondering how I could prove it was possible to sing three verses of "Fiddler on the Roof" while standing within four meters of the Grand Canyon.
(Firstly, I realised that Fiddler On The Roof is not a song, but in fact a musical title, so I changed the task to singing "If I Were a Rich Man".)

As I settled into deep thought, I started idly singing (which is my normal behaviour while thinking).
Three verses of "If I Were a Rich Man" later, I realised how I could prove if it was possible to sing three verses of "If I Were a Rich Man" while standing within four meters of the Grand Canyon.

After which I settled down to eating my lunch: four bananas, three cherries and one small mango.
I was in a hurry so I finished my lunch in exactly 4 minutes and 23 seconds.

It's probably best if you don't.

Re: my short response:
Larni has done a more than adequate explanation of why you are wrong.

TBH: I could write the list of things that you are correct about on the back of a postage stamp using a crayon.

My prediction, before I submitted my question, was that you'd eat crow on this one.


...and you don't even have evidence of your own predictions.

Blatant lie, Jar.


Are you claiming that Jar did not post the complete list of definitions from your link?
Because I have clicked your link and it looks like he did.
