Why do ballet dancers stand on their toes? Why don't they just get taller girls?

Nothing; it makes the food which supports the rest of the food chain, which is why it's referred to as a "producer".

How far could the male dancers carry a 6 foot tall girl over their head?!

Absolutely right - if they're made of a non synthetic material such as cotton.

 :lol:   . . . but not strictly true.

How far could the 6 ft tall girls carry the male dancers is the real question!   :-\

They could take me all the way to wherever they wanted!  8) (but they would probably just want to get me off the dancefloor before I injured someone!)

Not all producers are photosynthetic (producing food energy from sunlight and CO2). Some are chaemosynthetic (producing food energy from other chemical reactions). Examples include those near black smokers (no jokes about BA and a cigar please) and in a few caves.  Those near black smokers support a rather large food chain.

easy one! Because we all start out as embryos the same, our gender is only determined later in the gestation perod  but by that time our nipples are already there, like that tattoo you wished you never got

this is absolutely true.  :thumbsup: Though  gender (in the brain) is different from physical sex at birth. (ie:- physical attributes.) It's complicated, a lot more than many people think...
