Impossible questions

    Not sure I know what exactly got me thinking of this (actually I do...I was reading the Narrative of Cabeza de Vaca) but I'm wondering:

    In the history of mankind, how many people have died?

    And since that is patently unanswerable, how many people have died since the year 0, when we went from BC to AD? Again, unanswerable, but fun to ponder, just the same.

    What other unanswerable questions can you think of?

    Is that an unanswerable question or a question about my initial post? :)

    This is going to be a subthread of Random Thoughts.

    Junkie, excellent question. I don't have an answer for it.

    I dunno. Is yours an unanswerable question? :-*

    Have you stopped beating your wife yet?

    That's not an impossible question, and it's not just your gas guage gauge. The gauge doesn't measure linearly and it often has to do with the shape of the tank.

    0 Celsius=32 Fahrenheit

    BUT

    -40 Celsius=-40 Fahrenheit

    HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
