The girlfriend got one of these the other day. The sides of tha bag were filled with fun sceince 'Facts'. one was "You can jump 6 times higher in space." Now, the probably meant the moon, but even if they did, would it be right?

The other one was a tongue twister that started 'Terry Teranodon...'

That's funny-- I have that very same bag! I got it months ago, and saved it. It's on my desk here somewhere, bureid under a pile of other things I need to write about... anyway, they obviously meant "on the Moon" but it got screwed up.

Wouldn't it proportional to how many kids meal bags the kids have eaten?:dance:

Couldn't be any worse than what's inside them:razz:

Seriously though, shouldn't something like this have been caught? What's the point of trying to introduce science to young kids if the persons in charge can't get a simple elementry school fact right?:wall:

Well, they can't get the concept of food right, so why expect them to get other facts right?

Then perhaps they intended 6 feet to be the nominal value, with a tolerance of +∞/-∞.

At least Long John Silver's made good on their MER/jumbo shrimp promise! :clap:

Target circumference?

Target circumference?Only down to 6 - 6. The rest of the tolerance in that direction is in case the experimenter is next to a hole, a cliff, or worse...
