R-or-D, can you please rephrase the question somehow? I just set down a 5-dollar bill on the ground and jumped over it without moving it. Of course, to be very exact I'm sure the air movement from the jump probably blew at the bill and "moved" it on a very small scale, but...

Also, what is that part about air moving it but not you? What does that have to do with anything (about jumping over the bill)?

Everything's relative. You may be jumping over the bill, but in another point of view the bill is jumping over you...
I don't know about the simplicity of this, but it sure is stupid :D.

What class was this for? If its a physics class teaching relativity, I'd go with Magos.

No no no, you got it all wrong! Your buddy has to set down the 5 dollar bill :)

Yeah, please rephrase the question. What class is this for? How many people in your class?

OK, so I got my sister (we are buddies) to do this with me, since I didn't have a 5 dollar bill.

And I got it! ...the 5 dollar bill, I mean. I picked it up and told her that since I was able to jump over it without moving the bill I get to keep it ;) We did make the bet, so... no, later I gave it back.

I think the whole reason for this thing is to steal a 5 dollar bill from you, so beware!

I know it can be done, i did it. But there is a logical reason why what we did wasn't it.

I know this questions dumb, but theres an answer and i gotta find it. Its for Computer Science 2, she gives us stuff like this all the time.

The question is simple. You bud puts the bill on the ground and tells u to jump over it. Its impossible to do and theres a reason why.

Tell her you are too experienced in computer programming to spend your valuable time on lousy 5\$. :p

How about the letter 'u' can't jump, or is that just the slacker's way of writing 'you'? I notice you wrote 'u' both times.

lmao beta...

Ok, heres the answer! I know it was said before here and i sai dit wasn't it, cuz she told ME that wasn't it. So we both had it and shes a dumb biatch:

The bill was placed in a corner.

However i big to differm if i jump over it and bounce of the wall with my fett, having not touched the ground, have i not jus jumped over it?

I could take the wall down around the bill.

Ahem...

Sooo, a wall isn't something that prevents you from taking it? Well, according to that answer, it DOES prevent you...
These statements would give the logical equation True == False.

Quote:

A buddy sets a 5 dollar bill on the floor. He bets you the bill that u cannot jump over it without moving it.
Thats the problem, i can jump over the bill fine but theres a logically reason why this is impossible.
The question doesn't mention anything that the bill has to be placed in a special way, only in general. And (logically) placing a bill on the floor doesn't mean it's placed in a corner.

Quote:

The air from your body can move it, but u cannot physically touch it.
What's stopping you from blowing it away from the corner, then jumping over it?

This whole quiz was rather stupid... no offense... :).
