Well... you see... when a daddy and a mummy love each other very much, they sit down together and have a game croquet! And then, 9 months later, you came out!

And then mummy has to explain WHY you came out, because daddy was away on business most of the month.

The universe... why is it so big?

### Re: Simple Question = Silly Answer

Well, that really depends on how you define churchmouse. If you're talking about a mouse that is in a church, then there is no way of directly telling because mice are invincible while on holy ground (it was part of that deal between Reepicheep and Aslan; the tail was just a bonus). You can logically infer from the size of the mouse, however, that it ranges from about five milliliters to about twenty, depending on age. If you're talking about a member or descendant of the Churchmouse clan from Redwall, however, that's a whole different story. That universe has a kind of inconsistent measuring system. On the one hand, fish, trees, and such are much larger than the mice; on the other hand, when they refer to "inches," it's to the mice approximately what an inch to humans would be. So that implies that the mice, and everything else, are friggin' huge, man! So for this breed of Churchmouse, you would either have a similar estimate, or one probably approximating the amount of blood a human has, i.e. approximately eight pints for an adult, about two for a wee baby.

//actually, I think the trees are proportionate to the mice, just that they live in a big forest. I mean, the highest trees stretch to the hight of the abby wall, which is built in proportion to the mice and also in proportion to the tree, apparently. it's the horses and badgers that confuse me. badger lords would make an AWESOME D&D class. they'd have to have like ecl-20.

//You could probably get much the same effect by making a naturally lycanthropic werebadger, with levels in Barbarian. Although technically you might be able to take Frenzied Berserker from the get-go. I seem to recall making a rather silly twink like that, actually, though I was talking about a regular badger. They have a trait that allows them to go into a frenzy when attacked, which they will not come out of until they or their opponent is dead. Then you take ten levels of Frenzied Berserker and get deathless frenzy, and you cannot lose in single combat. Ridiculous.

A failure to be silly does not appropriately create a situation wherein a query about the humor value of a comedic device can be issued. Especially if said humor device is never truly humorous in and of itself.

### Re: Simple Question = Silly Answer

Well, it all depends on your perspective. In certain cultures, the character known as "Santa Claus" is real enough in the minds of children. As children are more prone to solipsism, Santa is very real from their perspective. The author of "Yes, Virgina, There Is A Santa Claus" can further elaborate. However, from a scientific perspective, this character would have to be so ridiculously advanced in terms of technology that we could only postulate his existence in terms of Clarke's Third Law. Furthermore, from a historical perspective, there was surely a real person named "Nicholas" who was sainted and whose persona was eventually exaggerated both by literature (see Clement Moore) and by clever marketing campaigns (see Coca-Cola). This evolution has led the Santa Claus character to be a very culturally real symbolic phenomenon of the spirit of Christmas, both as it was and is now. Lastly, if you read it in the Sun, then it is so.

### Re: Simple Question = Silly Answer

The rate of a woodchucks woodchucking, V' m³/s, varies according to V' = k \cdot V_b \cdot f where V_b m³ is the volume of wood that each chuck chucks away when chucking an SI standard piece of wood, f Hz is the frequency of the chucking and k is a constant depending on the hardness of the wood.
