Why on earth did Sun decided to make "69" questions to their SCWCD exam ? Disturbing, isn't it ?

May be because Year 69 was a common year starting on Sunday ?
I remember same question used to come in mind in school.Some examination papers used to have 23 questions in total.Sometimes total 17 and you have to solve any 11.

I always thought that song had a double meaning. I guess my mind is kinda in the gutter, like Christophe...

Woah. Be careful here. This is either pushing the limit of the "be nice" rule. Someone may have gotten offended. Or the phrase may been taken literally...

For the record, the term Mind in the gutter has a very specific meaning.

From that site: "Timmy said he wanted some creamy pie, mom told him to get his mind out of gutter."

What does this mean?
and what does the number 69 have to do with gutters?
what is this whole damn thread about?.
At first I thought Christopher had gotten himself in deep shit so to speak, so I kind of took it literally but then I checked up 'gutters' and thought he didn't apply enough lubricant and had managed to get himself lodged in a gutter(fairly common phenomenon I'm sure). And now I'm told its about impure thoughts?

Normally, I would recommend using google on some of the terms or phrases, but your computer may catch a virus if you do that...

I think this topic may be a bit too close to crossing the line. And I may be the one closest to the line, at the moment. I'm seriously considering closing this topic, so please be careful.
