    The next statement is a true statement (it actually is )

    One week ago, I was 16, but next year I'll be 19. How can this be true?

    Easy to answer given the obviousness of the day I'm posting this on.

    December 2007=16-17
    December 2008= 17-18
    December 2009= 18-19

    yeah, it's harder when it's set in the summer, but this way it's actually true. Well done

    Would it work in the summer? You'd have to say you were sixteen six months ago wouldn't you?

    In the summer, you have to speak like people only speak when they're in some riddle or other: "I once found myself in a situation where I could truthfull say 'one week ago I was 16, but next year I'll be 19'. Tell me how this is so and I shall let you cross the bridge... I have no friends"

    Lol. doodinthemood, your name supports the suggestion in one thread that you are a 50-year old gay guy... is that true? I'm being honest, that was posted.
