    For the first question, one of the answers was “Kicks out with both hind feet.” LOL that’s obviously not correct

    On my registration, I put down my friend’s login because she was the one who showed me this website. When registering, it said that “the godfather you have typed doesn’t exist” when i know that she actively plays on the website. I have, however, created an account without a sponsor, but when looking around on the website, it says that having a sponsor mean getting special privileges, and I tried to type in my sponsor’s login on the registration but it said she didn’t exist. I need help, preferably soon.

    Just pointing out you made a mistake and put;

    What is a bone that humans and have and horses don’t?

    Instead of ‘What is a bone humans have and horses don’t?’

  6. Ƨиσωғℓακɛon 14 Oct 2013 at 12:24 am

    @Fine, I think both make sense, but reviewing the statement it was phrased incorrect. =)

    I looked up this question:

    and I clicked the one depicting your given answer, but it was wrong! I feel horrible now, making that particular Archimedes lose intelligence. Here’s that Archimedes:
