1 Robbie Fisher, Erik Ellingsen, Logan Phillips
2 www.fredrickville.rocks.it
3 "Kraut" comes from the thick, pungent sauerkraut we made in Biology. The name was adopted to refer to the meat of the website.
4 "Seriousness"
5 Bill Nye, Millard Filmore, Ashley "why can't you be more like your sister?" Olsen
6 The Manic-Depressive Webserver
7 "Liberty Cabbage n' Junk"
8 Henry Ford
9 Cambell's Condensed Cream of Celery.

1 The common concensus estimates around 200 spoons
2 The daily life of #83
3 31 pages (in one night)
4 Cadet, Placator, Seraphim, Sweaty Balls
5 Two square roots!
6 As I remember it, Robbie ate 17 fudge rounds and Logan ate 15, for a total of 32. (four boxes worth.) The school, buying at 8rounds/$1.08 and selling at 2/$0.25 was losing $0.08/box. The total loss incurred was therefore thirty-two cents.
7 4 pounds divided by 2.2 pounds per kilogram = 1.814 kilograms

"MY dear friend, your answers to #1 are wrong."

Spoonman @ 06/06/06
"How do you figure? You initially created three columns and I only signed on a week after the site went up. About a week after that, Erik, who wrote about Blink182 a lot, stopped posting."

Spoonman @ 06/06/06
"Did Logan not come in until later?"

Pinkstar @ 06/06/06
"please you just wanted to look cool by posting on 6/6/6 It worked."

Spoonman @ 06/07/06
"Correctamundo! "What" ain't no country I've ever heard of!"

FredFredrickson @ 06/08/06
"before erik, there were a few completely useless admins, -who by the way have tshirts.."

FredFredrickson @ 06/08/06
"guess who"

Spoonman @ 06/08/06
"Given the circumstances, I'd have to go with the Grenier/Hauck crowd, and maybe unofficially, St. Georges"

meanderer @ 06/08/06
"St. Georges is the man and i would have his babies "

FredFredrickson @ 06/16/06
"hauck was one. I had been in contact with logan, but I'm not sure who started actually talkinga bout nothing about FV first, luke nyman or logan.. so that's a toss up. Erik didn't join till after you. He then quit and joined like twice more."
