guys do we think it's someone found a place of work or business then?
*guys do we think it's found at someone's place of work or business then?
that doesn't seem as likely though
it's plastic or paper
is rubber plastic? (not a question)
i reckon it's a work document and i'm going home ttfn
so get your questions in or we'll resume lunchtime tomorrow.
Ie - piece of paper, mug, paper clip - one piece
- computer, headphones, jeans - composite
Yes - one piece
No - composite
(I'll not count Smee's question)
you've got nine questions left; I'll be back tomorrow lunchtime.
you have nine questions left :)
is it usually found in an office?
run down of what it is
can be shared
found in a mode of transport
can be found within 5 minutes
will fit in a backpack
is one piece
not made of metal
can it be found in a car?
ok, yeah, out of all modes of transport, is this thing most likely to be found in a car?
^clarification NOT question
that's found in multiple modes of transport and will fit in a backpack. hmmm...
narrow down what it's made from? it's function?
I'm rubbish at this
in that is has one primary use
*not a real question
Oyster Card. that would be composite though right.
note: this is not a question
or a house
plastic (can be)
fits in a backpack
used in cars (where i use them most anyway)
shared (maybe? does share mean use at the same time?)
in short... could be anything.
or something along those lines?
alan partridge driving gloves?
- you have your two more guesses
- then I'll allow you ten minutes to get clarification regarding any of the answers I've given.
it is a man-made, inanimate object. It is not usually made of metal; it is not food. It's not *usually* found in the house, or outdoors, or in the office; it can be found in a car. (In short, it could be found - and indeed used - in a large number of places). It is easily accessible for me within five minutes. It has a single primary use. It's not a car air freshener or an ice scraper.
are you standing by that?
it can be shared.
is it an item of clothing or accessory?
..although most items of clothing aren't one piece... still
*not a question*
loads of cds in homes
metal and plastic
also not a question
not inside the house, not office, not outside, possibly in a car
it's just something that can be found in a variety of locations
possibly a bank card
i think theta s a red herring
last question please, and then a guess :)
(serves you right for making a 'your mum' joke).
Okay, guessing time!
too car specific
paper money is as good as I can think of
unless you count ink as differing components?
"It is not usually made of metal"
paper money is NEVER made of metal - so it cant be that
put us out of our misery, ccb
1) A map is not an animal
2) A map is an inanimate object and is therefore neither male nor female
3) You can share a map. You may lend a map to someone, or a map may be displayed publicly for the benefit of others.
4) A map is man-made, albeit from natural resources.
5) You cannot eat a map. Well, you could but it’s not food.
6) A map is not made of metal, though you do occasionally see maps carved from metal and displayed publicly
7) A map is not *usually* found in the house but could be stored or displayed there.
8) A map is not *usually* found outdoors but it is often used outdoors.
9) A map, in its most practical form is a physical thing as opposed to a concept.
10) The map I was looking at when I wrote the question is made of one piece of paper. But it could be bound in book format.
11) A map would fit in an average rucksack
12) There is at least one map in my office; therefore I could get hold of one in the next five minutes.
13) A map is not *usually* found in the office but could be stored or displayed there.
14) A map is found inside many modes of transport and is a useful accessory.
15) A map is not a car air freshener
16) A map is not an ice scraper thing
17) A map can be found in a car but 17b) a map is just as likely to be found in a lorry, taxi or in the panier (sp?) of a bicycle
18) A map has one primary use – to identify the location of places and streets in an area.
19) A map is not generally an item of clothing, though could be used to shield someone from the rain
20) My mum is not free tonight.
we're shit at this
... although I guess both are peices of 'paper' with stuff printed on... so it could be further off I guess
