    Default Very annoying question

    Presumably because I am a newbie here, I have to answer a question before posting. Fair enough. But when the question is "what colour is a carrot?" and I put down orange and am told the answer is wrong.

    I thought you were all vegetable gardeners on here!

    How many posts do I have to place before I am rid of this ridiculous charade?

    Carrots come in many colours, would be the correct answer - honestly

    You are posting now, aren't you? The questions are just to make sure you aren't a robot, I presume, so don't get too cross with the system..

    I have grown purple, yellow, and white carrots...

    I had that question and had to stop to think for a bit. The answer is "carrot-coloured" obvů

    Weren’t carrots originally purple & things have happened to make them more friendly looking they made them orange? It’s a difficult question to catch out the robots.

    Once you've found the answer to the colour of carrots, prepare yourself for "What is the colour of grass?"

    That's a really hard one - especially if you're a robot.

    I seem to recall that around post number ten a lot of annoying things stopped happening.

    Pretty old style tech running this site - doesn't stop it being great though. Grin n bear the pain at the start of the 'Process' - (reference - my missus is watching Apprentice right now)

    Once that process is out of the way... well, YMMV but its worth sticking with it (the site)
