I shall now answer some of the questions that have puzzled great minds for years in a dismissive manner. If you have any suggestions for me, please tell me in the comment section of this post. Ready?
Stupid answers to smart (and dumb ones,too)
Q: What came first: the chicken or the egg?
A: It depends: the chicken came first in the sentence,but the egg occurred many years before chickens could have laid them. (The question did not specify a chicken’s egg…)
Q: What is the sound of one hand clapping?
A: I do believe Bart Simpson covered this one. Fold your hand in on the bottom part of your hand, and TA-DA!!!! Another so-called “impossible” question solved.
Q: If a tree falls in a forest but nobody hears it, does it make a sound?
A: This is just plain annoying. It is not a mystery to solve, it is just a way to annoy people by asking it. Physics backs the annoy-ee but the annoy-er will just say “How do you know?” I know from experience that if you use big words ( I suggest “dipsomaniac” or “gibberish”) people will give up.That is, if they do not understand the big, complicated words you say that may not be real. Otherwise, say ” How do you know trees fall when nobody is there in the first place? Hehehe. More on how to beat the tree-fall conundrum next time.
Q: How do I know I not am a brain in a vat with programmed thoughts?
A: You are not a brain in a vat because if ANYONE is this wacky old universe of ours was brain in a vat, it would be me because, call me vain, but I know that I’m a person (or just a brain) so you can’t.
Q: What is the meaning of life?
A: Look it up in the dictionary,buddy.
I know I couldn’t have all the conundrums on here, but here’s one for you guys at home to try: What happens when an unstoppable force meets a object that does not move?
Try that out and answers next week.
This is my sign off.
