This question came up in psychology a week ago.:
What's the first thing you know?

there is an answer but it's incredibly hard to get right. it took the class a week to figure out and i was the one who got it right. im so proud :D

btw, the answer is not "you mommy's name"
good luck.

The first thing you know is the first thing you pick up.

Google's (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22What%27s+the+first+thing+you+know%3F+%22) most popular answer appears to be "Ole Jed's a millionaire", but I doubt that was the answer you were looking for.

how to blink or hiccup

I'm guessing...
The first thing you know, independant from your mother,
is how to breathe.
Because that's the first thing you do immediately,
on your own, as soon as your little head pops out,
before anything else you do.
Just a guess.

But if it can be the very first thing you know before your born is blinking and hiccuping.
-watched my son hiccup on an ultrasound n it use to keep my up all hours of the night,
hmm also sucking your thumb lol
ok enough babble from me

Post Pump!:D

No, I'd have to agree with anyone who said breath.

I do not think it is, as that seems to be a little too obvious.

Xerxes

Don't you have to be slapped first by the doctor before you start breathing? I would say that the first thing you know is pain

An excellent introduction to life, if you ask me.

I think I'd have to agree with X, pain or feeling.

I agree...there's got to be a punchline to this.
For me...the first thing I knew was how to be late for breakfast.
Like a week late.
My mom was about to explode.

The first thing you know is how to swim.

I thought you said you weren't gonna do this again.
Even after being warned about it by Matt and ethan_h.
Some folks never learn I suppose.

I don't think you can safely claim that there is an answer, because it's incredibly hard to get into the mind of a baby. Also, "existence" is a higher order concept, one which an infant cannot understand.

Also, you need to define "know". Do you mean acquired knowledge, or something instinctual, such as the gag reflex and swimming?

Holy cow, papadoc!
I wasn't actually a post pump, because I was contributing to the topic!
Don't always expect the worst from me. It was meant as a joke. :)

hi guys.. i'm new here.. hehe
anyway...


is it: the first thing that you know is that you dont know?

papadoc
6th February 2002, 00:25
Fair enough Ian, but you have to understand.
After all the post pumping you did, and bragging about it,
even a comical reference to it now will be taken wrong.
It's better to just let the "post pump" reference die,
even if you are joking.
I'm just trying to help you out, ok?

My mantra has been this for the past 2 years:
"Don't use your brain, stupid. Let Google do the thinking for you."

Works pretty well..... most of the time.

indeed it has nothing to do with psychology... but my psyc. professor asked it so i figured it had to do with actual psychology... but it turned out to be quite opposite

it was a test to prove that people overthink things...
it probably doesnt make sense unless you've seen the show

I despise riddles that have several reasonable solutions but the person who asks it insists on the one he concocted.

I say we make this thread similiar to a Q and A, but with riddles.

Easy starter: What walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three at night?

Please tell me you are only kidding! Everyone knows that one, it was the sphinxes riddle. The next person better get it right or I will be depressed at the stupidity of those in these forums...:(


What walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three at night?

(after you answer put another riddle up)

Human. baby, man, old feller.

What can you put in a wheelbarrow but never push down the street?

iomegajaz
7th February 2002, 03:50
That's horsepoop. Thinking along the lines of a baby's first thought iis not overthinking the question, it's simply NOT thinking along the stupidly lateral lines of "Hmm, I wonder if there's a pop-culture reference in there somewhere...".

Sorry, but if I had said what I would have said (had I seen this thread before today), and had then been told I was wrong, and that the answer was some shit like "Old Jed's a millionaire", I'd be pissed off. No, wait, I AM pissed off.

I would have said that the first unconscious knowledge acquired was that one IS. I think, therefore I am.

Here's a good one:

What number am I thinking of?


re: wheels
No. You'll spark up the sidewalk, but it could still be done.

If your scale is from 0:00 to 23:59, the baby starts walking at about 0:20, not in the afternoon.

Yes, of course. What is it, and I'll tell you if you are right.

"What can you put in a wheelbarrow but never push down the street?"

If "it" is "yourself".. you can't push yourself down the street..

EDIT
ie. You can put it in a wheelbarrow, but you can't push it down the street.
