If anyone feels I'm wrong, I'll be happy to listen. But not to you. As far as I'm concerned, you have forfeited your right to play this round. Next.
Haha, watch out Simon Cowell, you may be out of a job in no time...

Am I wrong, or is the game going to continue? Who has the answers?

I deleted my responses taking my answers out. I would like a new question though. If you delete your quote they will be gone all together

By no means do I want to rain on anyones insignificant parade, but this is something that really shouldn't be this complicated... even for 13 year olds.


And if people would like to make sure that an answer to a question hasn't already been correctly answered and a new one posed before answering the previous, that would probably help out too...


Maybe it should just be locked, one man put in charge, and then the answers PMed to that individual. WHen the correct answer is submitted, that individual posts who got the answer, what it was, and that person's question.

I only suggest because no one seems to be able to manage this. I mean, six pages already and there's been a grand total of around 4 questions asked... maybe.

I don't delete, I don't rewrite history, I don't censor. I also don't jump to the command of the person who got busted doing something questionable. The person who successfully answers the question without cheating will determine the next question. Just think, if you told the truth to begin with, you could be in charge right now.

Honestly, that doesn't sound like such a bad idea. It'd keep it alittle more neat and organised in here (as long as others knew to 'not post in here').

I never denied any of what you said. I simply said that we had a misunderstanding, and that it was my fault, but the answers are right there to anybody who reads the thread. Will somebody at least post a new question?

Simpleton. If you did more than just read the numbers on the pages, you'd know something of that nature has already occured. And I don't recall anyone asking for your advice. If someone else wants to take this over, fine. Until a few people ask me to step aside, it looks like I'm stuck with it.

Also, I think I saw somewhere that the crank was a little different (if you need more explanation of that, I'll need to try and find the site..)....
Might as well repost this, not sure if you saw this or not or really how accurate it is but it's a try...

As with Chris, all correct but only one completely. Also only two meet the requirement of being a primary difference.

Answers and correct answers are not the same thing.

oh, I thought that they were the correct answers because he cheated. I didn't know what he got from you, but I thought thats what he posted. Therefore, I thought he had the correct answers

for people joining, I believe this is the recent question....

What are three primary differences between a 350 SBC and a 400 SBC. Bore, stroke and displacement are not acceptable answers.

Maybe they are and maybe they aren't. Notice I never said either way. That would be cheating the people who are playing honestly. And no, I never gave him the answers. I was born at night, just not last night.
