I didn't think it was possible, yet they did it.

Another sort of silly one while I try to think up some better ones.

They=humans? animals? animate objects? inanimate objects? real? fictional? dead? alive? male? female?

Would most people think "it" wasn't possible if they hadn't seem them do it?

Was the thing they did something that seemed to defy logical rules? physical laws? time constraints?
did they do something faster than seemed possible? slower? better? worse? more easily?

Did "they" think it was possible before they did it?

male? female? Irrelevent.

Relevent how many "they" are? if so, how many...1, 2, insert list of numbers here...?

better? Yope. worse? Yope.--did they perform better at something most people would consider bad, therefore they were best at being worst? (does that make sense?)

Was what they did a physical feat? Mental?
If physical, did it require strength? speed? flexibility? coordination? superior sight? hearing? smell? taste?

Did they eat/consume anything?

Were any objects involved?

If you went up to a random person on the street and told them that so and so just did such and such...would their likely reaction be disbelief? suprise? denial? happiness? disgust? anger? indifference? concern? Is it likely they would already have known?

better? Yope. worse? Yope.--did they perform better at something most people would consider bad, therefore they were best at being worst? No.(does that make sense?Yes.)

Was what they did a physical feat?Closest. Mental?
If physical, did it require strength? speed? flexibility? coordination? superior sight? hearing? smell? taste? None of these, really.

Did they eat/consume anything? No.

Were any objects involved? Yes.

Sorry for all the yope's, but some of those are really hard to answer.

Did the thing they did became famous?
Did this happen during the last year/decade/century? Earlier?

Are any pieces of technology used while doing that thing?
Would it be called "working"/"playing"/"researching"/"helping" what the did?
Are the people called heroes/martyrs (at least by some people)?

*bulging eyes* They really did this? Did the cat survive?
I don't know, they didn't write it there

Were they the ones who invented the piece of technology? Like a completely new invention or like combining a microwave with a toaster?

Would it have been possible 5/10/25/50/100/1000 years ago?

The piece of technology:
-electronical device?
-electrical device?
-mechanical device?

How they did it:
Did they one time meet somewhere and just did it? Is the group spread all over the world and has never/once met?
Did the group have to prepare anything in advance?
Did individual members have to prepare anything in advance?
Was the group founded/assembled just because of this? Or did it exist anyway?
Did someone say "I want to do this", then gathered a group and when they were enough, they did it?

Was it something that was planned/could be planned in advance? Or were they just at the right place in the right time?

"Are any pieces of technology used while doing that thing? Yes."
That's the technology we are referring to.
electric: something that needs/runs with electricity, like a toaster or a light bulb
electronic: something with build-in electronical devices like chips (PCs, cell phones etc.)


Is it a group like it can be founded by anyone with voluntary membership? Or a group some people automatically belong to, like because of their belief, job, etc.?

Did this happen at a specific (and relevant) place?

And again, what is FA?Sorry, did you ask before? I didn't see. It is a false assumption, when you are assuming something that isn't true. It often makes it hard to answer questions, so we put FA.
Grown rather than built?No. Anything to do with clones?Nope, afraid not.
I realise now that I was a little misleading with that previous answer. I should have said that it is not built by them per say.

Ambigous question alert! Usually people will answer what you mean, but technically we are only supposed to answer with yes and no. Some people are sticklers for the rule, though, so be warned. Luckily I am not one. That ends today's lecture. Thanks for putting up with my insufferable insufferablenaess.

I forgot, Is it really big, or small? Yes. I mean small. Darn those ambigous questions.
Did they use electricity in the achievement?Yes, but only to the extent of using computers to design.

So, if i can clarify: they made something tiny with computer programming. They just used a design program on a computer to design it, the computer is not of major relevence anyway.

Is it something edible?No.

Ok, let's try. First a recap, interrupt when I go wrong
So, a group of people have designed something using computers, though the thing they designed is not a high-tech item, correct? But it is a small item, true? Something which is very useful to most age groups? And the item comprises metal, rubber and plastic? (plus maybe other minor constituents)?
Is this something that is in common use in the daily lives of most of us today?
Is it in use commonly in this newly-designed miniature form? Or in a larger form?
Are there specific scenarios when this thing is useful? Such as having specific medical conditions? Or times when one is in danger when this thing is useful?
Is the thing useful in business? In childcare? In communications?

N.B. by 'item' in this line, I mean the type of item we're discussing, not necessarily a sinlge instance of something
Is the type of item being discussed (the smaller one) something which could be picked up by an adult of average height and build?
Is the item harder for some to use specifically because of the smaller size?
Does the item have keys to be pressed? Levers to be pushed?
Is this a functional item? Or something merely for amusement?

OK, let's try to find out the FA:
Are we looking for a type of tangible item?
which is made of metal, plastic and rubber?
which has levers?
which serves a function?
Does the yope on "is it a door?" mean that it has a door but is more than a door? that it is a door-like structure not usually referred to as "door"?

Do the yopes on "do you usually find it on the floor etc.?" mean that you can usually find this thing in more than one of these places? Is there a part of it in each of these places? Do you find it in differnet places when you visit different homes? Can you see it from the outside of the house?

Is its design important to most people? Does the thing show pictures?

These have probably already been covered, but just to be sure:
Does it consume electricity? Does it consume some sort of fuel? Does it do something with water?

And a few shots in the dark:

heater? oven? air conditioning? some kind of pipes? plumbing? TV? fridge? freezer? window shutter?

you're welcome.

Kitchen? Living Room? Dining Room? Bedroom? Closet? Bathroom? Family Room? Office?

I'm imagining the tiniest of studio apartments, the ones where you feel like if you walk into the kitchen, you may not have room to turn around to get back out again--or the bathrooms where you can sit on the toilet and touch every wall, yet someone always manages to make it even more compact to the point that it's hardly functional. Is this the idea here?

is it a bathroom on a space ship?

does it contain all the usual bathroom appliances eg shower, sink, toilet, bath?
is it designed for dwarfs?

nursing home?
is there anything unusual about the items in the bathroom?
or anything unusual about the bathroom itself?
is its location strange?
for example, is the bathroom in or close to the kitchen/living room etc or irrel?
designed for animals?if yes, a bathroom for dogs?
was it built for an animal, or is it located inside a dog kennel or other animal housing?
strange train of thought, i know, but i'm stumped!

Mobile home?Yes! Commonly refered to as camper. Winibago?

Spoiler!!!

So we had this camper for years, with such a tiny bathroom, that I was sure that you could not make a functional bathroom smaller. Lo and behold, the new camper we got recently had an even smaller batheroom in it. You can barely fit an adult/human/male or female in it. I did not think it possible, but it was done. And now we have to live with it whan camping.

Thanks to all for playing. Special kudos to Beccaann for dispelling that lingering FA and the bathroom part, Crazypalpig for determination, and Plebein for the spoiler!
