To be fair, that is not a completely unreasonable (albeit incorrectly phrased) question.  There are enough gamers on this site to be able corroborate this.

That said, I have had a pupil ask me how many sides there were on a six sided die in the past.   :o

You're right. (even if it's not that long ago I actually saw a dice which had anything other than six sides to it)

But the dice in question was a six sided one. But when I think of it, said student wasn't the best when it came to maths. So I wouldn't put emphasis on "stupid".

Haha, and the answer to that was?  :lol:

Once upon a time in a math class during a test, a classmate asked out teacher: "How many sides does a dice have?".

Our teacher said she refused to answer that.
She should have told him to roll for knowledge check (using a D20) ;)
New to the forum & still quite new to 2000AD, but there is a collection of comics older than me in residence.

If we only were that clever. Can be said that where I grew up Ludo was the norm when it came to table top gaming ;)

Taking the topic on a tangent:

A newly qualified nurse was sent over to our stores today for a set of Fallopian tubes. :)

Cue hilarity and laughter.

That's scary - not somebody just starting a nursing course, but somebody who has actually qualified!

A neighbour's girl-friend was astounded to discover that there were "...Homosexuals going back as far as the 18th Century

I overheard a lady at work saying she wasn't keen on pork because it tasted too much of pig.

To be fair, she isn't stupid at all, (and I kind of get what she means.), but she comes out with amusing things.
