doesn't work directly off a class.

for some reason this method only works on relation objects, not directly on an AR class.

# doesn't work
User.offset(3).limit(1)

# does work
User.limit(1).offset(3)

there’s an closed ticket for this here http://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/tickets/5688-modeloffsetxlimitx-unknown-offset-method-exception and should be resolved in the next release of rails.
