    Only if it doesn't cheat.

      I would have thought not cheating is definitely a sign of low intelligence.

          You are right, I think it should be "8 triangles on a regular octahedron".

          However, as I understand it, there are 23 pairs of chromosomes in the human body. What is wrong with that answer?

            He might be hinting that the 23rd pair is a non-identical pair in human males. It is still a pair though so the objection could be overruled by the judge.

              Yes, but 8 tentacles on an octopus is correct and means there are plenty for me to eat.

                Plan A is located just about here.
                If that doesn't work, then there's always plan B
