    What's an animal that can swim underwater, run on land, and fly in the air?
    Mythological or not. Just curious :smile:

    Humans...with mechanical assistance, of course. :wink:

    There are a few different birds that can dive into the water and swim for short distances after their prey. They can fly, of course, and I suppose all of them could "run" on land, but mostly that would be limited to short sprints.

    I thought when you jinxed someone they couldn't talk and if they do, then they owe you a coke.

    This is a tough decision. It's (probably) Tsu and Ivan vs. Moonbear. Both sides have 1 mentor and 1 sisterhood member...

    I'm going neutral

    I'm from Canada, and last time I jinxed someone they quickly became confused like they never heard of the game. It was an odd situation.

    This is that "friend" I'm always whining about BTW
