I was going to post a response in YOUR 'Ask the Members' thread but I don't see one for you!
Isn't a baby horse called a colt? How old are they when they are finally called a horse?
My ask thread is "Behold, the body of Adonis and the brain of a squirrel". :D

Baby/young horses are called foals; colts are male foals, and filly's are female. ^_^ This was a filly, though I'm not actually sure how old she is. I know she's still young, but baby is probably not accurate...As for age, I think at 4 years old they become 'adult'. I had to google that one, though. XD

Water balloons?

"This question brought to you by the letters A through Z, and by the number 26."
One sentence that uses every letter is: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
It can be done in a shorter sentence as well: “Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.”
For the record, the longest word in the English language is: "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis", which is a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano.
A riddle asking "What word has all the letters of the alphabet?" has the obvious answer of: "Alphabet".

How have you been?
Welcome back!
I myself have been better, but I've been much worse as well. See my prayer request to learn what I just finished going through...

I used to have water balloon fights all the time. Even went to a school in Philadelphia where it was customary to bombard freshmen with water balloons on the last day of school. Somehow I was spared this embarrassment, but it made me feel left out a little bit. Almost as if I wasn't worth the effort. I'm not LoL!

Which was it you didn't know about the alphabet?

Large numbers scare me! Just so happens there's an argument about the number "9" has to be the largest number, where others say not. Let's see if I can get them right; I'll ignore the ones you probably know:

(the symbol "^" means "to the power of" or how many zeros follow)
Quadrillion: 10^15 (1,000,000,000,000,000)
Quintillion: 10^18 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Sextillion: 10^21 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Septillion: 10^24 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Octillion: 10^27 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Nonillion: 10^30 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Decillion: 10^33 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
(There are several more located after Decillion but aren't that popular from "Undecillion" to "Centillion".)
Then there are:
Googol: 10^100 (10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
Googolplex: 10^googol (Just imagine 10 followed by a googol of zeros!)
I'd be amiss if I left out the number "infinity". Many claim this is an actual number, although no one can actually count that high. Well, maybe Jesus could!
(Just because I love to Google things: Pi (to 50 digits) is approximately: 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510...)

I bet you knew the letter "E" was the most common, but just for fun here's the entire alphabet in the most common order of usage: etaoinshrdlcumwfgypbvkjxqz. (Small basic piece of fact anyone who did/does cryptography would know...)

Small numbers are the same as large numbers: They scare me! As large numbers can go to infinity, small numbers can go to infinitesimal. There is no room to show the smallest number in it's entirety that is closest to zero, but it is a decimal to the googol place after the decimal point.

I could have made some blockheaded comment about the size of one's pencil in making one number smaller than another number, but then we're talking size, not value.

That is small!
I did know that e was the most common vowel and t was the most common consonant, but the whole list was great. I always thought that q was used the least.

If I get up in the morning then it's a good day. Sometimes I'm up all night though and sleep in the morning. I'd still like to know who's idea it was to make mornings so early!

I used to watch it a lot. It's not a bad show. My favorite would have to be Beast Boy.

Sorry about that, I did a blockheaded thing!
How about I google how to actually post a youtube video, correct the post I made, then explain the video explains itself!
LoL

Aren't random absences annoying? That wasn't my question, that's me forgetting to check ccgr over the summer.

I know it's late but I'll be praying btw!

Any plans that you and your wife can do for the summer?
I literally do nothing
