Ask a dumb question, get a dumb answer

Recommended Posts

Does a bear poop in the woods? Does a rover on teeth mode with speed boots still move at half speed? Does Allack not know Four Plex is a CC1 level? Anyway, Chip is far too innocent a lad to go out throwing wild teen parties, since that would expose the existence of the clubhouse and its many impossible creatures. In his free time, as revealed by Alphabet Soup's decade message, Melinda comes over to his house to "help him study". Because he apparently isn't good with school or social life.

Clone machines replicate matter at no major energy cost. Why doesn't Melinda sell or abuse this technology and get rich?

Just because Melinda is the clubhouse president, doesn't mean she is the inventor of the clone machine or have any rights to sell it. The inventor of the clone machine could be anyone among the bit busters. She could, however, come to an agreement with said inventor. Unless, she actually is the inventor, which is still a possibility, as she is responsible for the creation of many other things in the clubhouse.

 

But let's just face it, she has been tempted many times to get to be able to sell it, but it'll give stupid or evil people the opportunity to clone themselves.

 

Why does (in MS mode) Chip say 'oof' when running into a wall?

Like, is it because of surprise, because it hurt, because of frustration, or because he was actually struggling, trying to move the wall?

Or because of something else?

OOF is actually an acronym for Out Of Footspace, meaning "out of room to move one's feet". When Chip is confused as to why he's no longer able to move forward, he remembers this acronym, and says it to himself out of astonishment.

If Four Plex was so good, why was there no Five Plex? Similarly, where's The First Laugh? And The First Starfighter?

They're in a levelset called CC: The Lost Levels. Which got lost after Chuck's computer crashed.

If Chips Challenge were to be made into 3D, do you think a TripleMaze level would sound fun?

Given how good Doublemaze was, probably.

How come Chip can get a short sprint when he moves, but only on every other tenth of a second?

Because he remembers there's a time limit, so he speeds up, then he gets distracted by the things in a level, so he forgets to mantain his speed, then he remembers again, so he speeds up again, only to get distracted again by the level, and lower his speed. Being Chip is not easy.

 

Why do we refer to Chip's direction as North, South, East, and West, instead of Up, Down (Or Forward, and Back), Left, and Right?

Chip is a big compass buff and would be saddened to bits if he weren't able to put his homemade novelty always-points-south compass to use. Also because forward/back/left/right would be relative to Chip's position and a pain with directional notation but LITERALLY NO-ONE cares about that. Name one person who thinks directional notation is useful. Right. Nobody.

Why come helmets can protect you from spaceships, fireballs, ghosts, and robots, but not a bowling ball? And if helmets protect you from fireballs, shouldn't Chip be able to walk across fire with a helmet by doing a handstand? Related: if Chip has fire boots, how come he can't just kick fireballs away?

Well, in order to protect himself with the helmet, he is required to head-butt an enemy, with the helmet on. In order to "attack" a bowling ball, he would have to lay down flat on the ground, top of helmet facing the bowling ball, and wait for it to run into his helmet. This is something he can't or is not allowed to do.

Chip would be able to walk across fire by doing a handstand, if he had the fire gloves to go with it. This item, unfortunately, was limited edition, and once the thieves stole from Chip the last pair of gloves in existence, they've been gone forever. No average user has seen the fire gloves, anyways, as they've only lasted the alpha testing stage.

About kicking fireballs,  maybe the fireball is bigger than the boot, thats why Chip can't avoid death from fireballs by kicking them, because the remaining fire would surround his leg and reach the rest of his body after impact.

Are fireballs living creatures, or soulless masses of fire guided by some unexplainable force (to move around and have the tendency to turn right)?

Chuck's Challenge provides the terrible answer to that question- they are in fact alive, but every second of living is torture for them and they can't stop screaming.

Woop (the hero of Chuck's Challenge) has cutscenes that give us an idea of his personality. But other than being a geek we know very little of what Chip is like. Do you reckon Chip is shy? Outgoing? Has a sense of humour? Do you think Chip would call Chuck a monkey if they met?

Chip is a talkative introvert and has the sense of humor of a slightly drunk college kid, except he swears less, and has a bit less knowledge of dirty jokes. Also, he adds biology, math, physics, chemistry, and IT references to his jokes.

If Chip met Chuck, he'd probably call him a falling stracciatella ice cream scoop, two seconds away from dramatically impacting on the hot concrete floor.

Why doesn't the green button (in MS) make the button sound effect, while the other buttons do?

Because whereas all the other buttons are amazing, the green button is just boring.

Brown button: Frees trapped creatures from their cages. Promotes environmental concern and the welfare of our ecosystem.

Red button: Creates new matter at no cost, potentially reversing entropy or something sciencey.

Blue button: Reverses tanks. Can be used to stop wars. The president ought to have one on hand.

Green button: Makes some walls pop up or down? Lame.

For that matter, pink and black buttons can generate free electricity, orange buttons can deactivate flamethrowers, yellow buttons allow you to control tanks for yourself (letting you decide the outcome of wars) and gray buttons are fucking awesome.

 

If chip has to go pee or poo where does he go pee. or poop.....

Why do you think the Teeth chase Chip?

 

You see a bowling ball moving toward four chips lying on the main track. You are standing next to a button that controls a toggle wall. If you push the button, the bowling ball will be redirected, and the four chips on the main track will be saved. However, there is a single chip lying on the side track. You have two options:

1. Do nothing and allow the bowling ball to consume the four chips on the main track.
2. Pull the lever, diverting the bowling ball onto the side track where it will consume one chip.

Which do you pick?

Out of all the buttons and their functions, though, the green button is probably one of the most useful for domestic use, though. 

Imagine having a big room for yourself in your house. You have no extra rooms, so when guests come, you press a button, and within less of a second, you activate a wall that separates the big room into two. Now your guests have their own space to put their air mattress and sleep that night. When the guests are gone, press the button again, and get your big room back. Or you can use the toggle walls to have a secret storage of whatever you want to have a stash of, just keep the button hidden. Also, you can use toggle walls instead of doors. The only drawback of this, though, is that all the walls open and close at the same time. You can always replace some of the walls with pink toggle walls, though. Also, make sure to not be on the walls while someone else activates them, because, if they reach the ceiling, there's a crushing hazard.

To answer the last question asked, it depends on how much chips are left. I'll go with 2.

Do you think the clubhouse has a ceiling? How high do you think the ceiling is?

Trick question, Craig. The bowling ball will only kill at most one Chip regardless. And depending on how the toggle wall is placed, the ball will just crash on it when it's closed.

The clubhouse is supposed to have a ceiling, but the one the bit busters hired was too high to come to work. The clubhouse does have a roof, though.

If pi=3.14 and e=2.72, does pie=8.54? How come we don't see this number in pieguy's levels?

What you don't understand is that Stolp's username is not to be read as "pie guy", but rather "pi eguy" - that is, an internet guy who talks about pi. Any evidence to the contrary (e.g. http://davidstolp.com/old/pie.php) is simply the exception that proves the rule true.

How do the bandits steal Chip's boots and keys if they're stuck in the floor? Doesn't it hurt when Chip steps on them? And how did they get themselves stuck in the floor?

Share this post

The bandits are ex bit busters who used to work in the underground of the clubhouse, that is, under the floor of the levels (scary place, by the way: it's dark, there are dripping pipes, and occasional rats). So they have perfect knowledge of the underground and above ground layout of the levels. Once they stopped working for the bit busters, they put their knowledge to use and started robbing those who would play the levels. They're not stuck to the floor, they take out the floor tile, from underneath, where they would like their head to peek from, and put the floor tile behind their head.

They steal boots by biting the boots so hard, that the next time Chip lifts his feet, the boots stay in place, and Chip's feet get out of the boots, and he just goes along without 'em. The keys are stolen like this: the bandits' glasses have built in magnets that are so strong, the keys end up tearing through Chip's pockets, and falling onto those magnets. 

And yes, it sometimes hurts, but if the bandits get drunk enough, they can be stepped on without feeling much pain.

There are hundreds of bit busters. How come we've only played as Chip and Melinda yet?

Plot twist- Do you really think Chip is on call to solve Clubhouse puzzles 24/7? He does take time off, and during his time off a body-double is used for him. So some of the times you've played CC, it might have been John or Fred who was actually on screen.

Are the rumours true about the red Teeth being racist to the blue Teeth because they have a different skin colour? Is that why we rarely see the blue Teeth because they have to hide when the red Teeth show up?

The red teeth aren't just racist towards the blue teeth, they're racist towards pretty much everyone. One of them once called Chip a "perfect set of pearls on a rotting bag of meat". The only reason they run away from Melinda is because girls have cooties.

The blue teeth don't appear often because they have social anxiety, and constantly worry that their presence might be dragging down the level, the way blobs drag down Blobnet. The blobs don't care, of course, and would happily ruin any level they can get their green sticky fingers which they totally have on, but that's a story for another time. Blue teeth only run towards Melinda because they think she might be an introvert like them. (She's not. She does improv in her spare time.)

 

In response to Gavin's answer -- so just about every Bit Buster is a body double for either Chip or Melinda? Are they just really obsessed?

Well clearly he throws parties, but all the guests get lost in the rooms of the clubhouse.

Speaking of which, why does this clubhouse have so many rooms?!

Because it used to be a mansion when they bought it. The old man who sold it even told them "just don't turn it into some geeky computer base or something like that".

But of course, they bought it with their money, so they could turn it into whatever they wanted. That old man is dead today, anyways.

How come Chip can't stop sliding on ice? Just because it's ice, doesn't mean you won't slow down and come to a stop eventually, right?

The geeks never do the dishes and there's olive oil all over the floor and the soles of his shoes. It's a wonder he doesn't slip on the floor to begin with.

 

Why hasn't there been a Chips Challenge movie deal yet?

Because they can't make up their mind if they want it to take place in 1989, or in present day.

Well, at least they have good taste, and cook with olive oil, instead of some other cooking oil.

Does it hurt the turtles to be stepped on? Would animal control one day go to the clubhouse and free all the turtles, making some water levels unplayable?

PETA has taken issue and will soon solve this problem by killing off all turtles. Thusly, there will be no cruelty towards turtles. Also as a result, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be rewritten for a live-action reboot as Friendly Mutant Furry Friends. Oh, and the Bit Busters will invent hover boards to move over the water.

 

Why don't ice blocks slide on the floor?

Ice blocks, despite their name, are not actually made of ice, but frozen water, and water does not slide on the ground.

If a teeth dies and no one's there to see it, does it make a sound?
