Stupidity Banned In Canada
My sister noticed this strange detail on a form for a contest at Buildabear.com. Looks like Canada banned stupid people.

I live in Canada, and I'll tell you why. Technically, lotteries are illegal in Canada. But everyone gets through on a loophole that if even the slightest of "skill-testing questions" are applied, it becomes a contest, not a lottery.

I'll kill the joke: Canadian law bans free give-aways, simple trivia questions serve as a legal loophole.

The answer is 5. It's called BEDMAS, not PEDMAS. Idiot. (Brackets, Exponents, Division+multiplication, Addition+Subtraction.) I happen to be Canadian, and yeah, for some reason we don't allow free giveaways. We also try to promote education and sensibilit

Free give-aways aren't banned, but if a 10 year old was to win it would be considered underage gambling. If you're over 18 and you win they just give it to you

The consecutive order is division and multiplication followed by addition and subtraction, therefore: 1x4=4 4/2=2 2+8=10 10-5=5 The answer is 5, damnit.

I learned BEDMAS myself, but "brackets" = "parentheses" (PEDMAS et al), and "exponents" = "powers" (PPMDAS, et al). So quit arguing; you're all getting the same result.

you don't even need to use Order of Opps. 4 times 1/2 is 2. 4 divided by 2 times 1 is 2. (4x1)/2 is 2...they are all 5...
April 20th, 2006

Wow. The order of operations is to do the mutliplication and division first, then to do the addition and subtraction. Since they are already in order, the answer is five. So for all the dumbsh*ts, the answer is five following order of operations.
