Can you answer my question? How many cookies can you eat on an empty stomach?


Your answer would be one cookie. Once you have that one cookie, you no longer have an empty stomach.

Actually one bite of one cookie. Unless you swallowed the entire cookie in one bite.

Swallowing the entire cookie is not out of the question to be honest.

And if we were to get technical, your stomach is never "truly" empty in the first place. Just depends on the resolution we want to go.

Hmm. These are all oldies but goodies. The polar bear comments were less than stellar, though, so I'll share some info about them.

Polar bears are indeed white or yellowish. Those are their apparent colors. Although their hairs are individually translucent while young, solar and oil stains eventually mar them. Polar bears are not translucent. They are not see through.

Also, their skin is black, which is obvious, if you study a picture of one.

And, as a side note, they are not nearly as friendly as they would appear to be.
