How much Vaseline will I eat in my life? I put a bit on my lips every day and a small amount of it probably gets ingested. So here's my question. If you lumped together all of the Vaseline that I ate during my entire life, would that Vaseline lump be:
a) bigger than an elephant?
b) smaller than an elephant?
c) about the size of an elephant, depending on the elephant?
Let's say it's an average-sized, adult, African elephant (the ones with the bigger ears). I think my answer would have to be 'c'. I think I'm going to eat about an elephant's worth of Vaseline.
On a completely different note, can I just point out how right I was about something else? I usually prefer stories that end with me messing up (they're more entertaining - and more common). But it's the first World Cup semi-final tonight, and I predicted weeks ago that the semi-finals would involve only European teams.
(Tonight it's Italy v Germany, tomorrow it's Portugal v France.)
While everybody else was going on about Brazil and Argentina, I trusted history - teams don't usually win the World Cup if it's being held outside their own continent.
Of course, I also had money on the Czech Republic.
