    1. "here" I guess

    2. hiding cows

    3. no

    4. longlivity

    5. the mirror site is usually faster than the straight-up windows location.

    I don't have any idea who Madame cama is, but I assumed she lived long ago, so if she were alive today she would be known for being extremely old, or as Abbadon said, for longevity....

    hiding cows

    yes
    4. If Madame cama were living today, what would she be most noted for?
    being alive
    5. Why would a cleaning person prefers to wash a mirror than a window of the same size,assuming both are equally accessible?
    a mirror's one sided, and they'd get to look at their lovely face in the mirror

    the mirror site is usually faster than the straight-up windows location.

    1. anywhere they damn well please.

    2. Hunting cows (in cow hunting season only please)

    3. yes

    4. Possibly the fact that her name can be rearranged to spell her name.

    5. Because in a mirror you can see the boss come up behind you so you can look like youre busy.

    1. On anybody's chair ? (actually, on your lap. Not that you would necessarily like it.)

    2. For clothing cows ?

    3. This ? No...

    4. Sorry, no wise guy answer available.

    5. Well, the right answer has been given.

    Strange that I replied in this way.
    I seem to remember that I had this in mind :
    "On your a**."
    Has shanmuga lost interest in his thread ?

    Thanks for digging this up jeeza. If you meant to ask why I have stopped with asking questions only, because I don't know the answers. I believe these type of questions don't have any definite answers. You can give any number of convincing answers. It is supposed to bring out the real 'you', a window to your thought process, sense of humour, beliefs, moods or whatever. Actually It was part of a long winding questionaire for 'assessing effectiveness in commanding sub-ordinates in a work place' . Post if you find any questions like this.

    Another little correction : maybe I should have written 'on my lap', as the reply is from the person the question was directed at (me, in this case) to the person asking the question. No misunderstandings I hope !
    shanmuga, thanks for your reply.
    It's a funny way, but I'd say in this case it's a very small window opened at just a hair's breadth, offering a micro-second's glimpse.
    It would be interesting to see that questionnaire.
