Answering ‘unanswerable’ questions

Something that has always bugged me are so called ‘unanswerable questions’. The main reason for this in THEY’RE NOT UNANSWERABLE! Anyway, I have taken the liberty to scour the web for these ‘unanswerable questions’ so I can irradiate them in front of the whole internet. Or the 6 people that will view this post.

Can you cry underwater?

Yes. Tears can leave your tear ducts while you are underwater but you would not last very long as crying causes you to inhale which, since you’re underwater, would kill you.

If you pamper a cow do you get spoiled milk?

No. Just no.

If you burp and fart at the same time would it cause a vacuum in your tummy?

I actually had to look this one up and here’s what I found: ‘No, burbs originate in the upper GI tract (stomach and esophagus) while flatulence is caused by the build up of gases in the intestine’. Every answer can be found on yahoo.

Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs when bunny’s don’t lay eggs?

I genuinely thought this may be an unanswerable one but another trip to yahoo proved me wrong. It turns out eggs and rabbits are both a symbol of rebirth which is what Easter is all about.

Why doesn’t the hair on your arms grow as fast as the hair on your head?

It does. It just has a much shorter maximum length.

What happens if a black cat walks under a ladder and breaks a mirror?

It will most likely get glass in its paw and need a trip to the vet.

Can you slam a revolving door?


What would happen if you found a four leaf clover under a ladder?

Nothing. It’s called superstition.

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

I highly doubt it.

What is love?

An emotion caused by a chemical reaction inside of you so you will find a mate that will give you children which are likely to survive. Sorry. I kinda killed romance a bit there.

Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the glue bottle?

Because glue needs to be surrounded by air to dry.

If you accidentally ate your own tongue, what would it taste like?

First of all, how do you ‘accidentally’ eat your own tongue? And second of all, no. Once you had chewed up your tongue (ew) the taste buds wouldn’t work anymore.

Do dolphins sleep?

They shut off half of their brain at a time while floating at the surface. I actually knew that.

What is the color of a mirror?

I think it has a slightly green tint or something but it doesn’t have a ‘color’ as such because it’s reflective.

What is the speed of dark?

You clearly don’t understand the concept of light.

If a tree fell in a forest and no one was there to hear it, would it still make a sound?

Ahh, the old classic. It would still create sound waves but the actual ‘sound’ isn’t created until it vibrates an ear drum so yes and no.

If Cinderella’s shoe fitted perfectly, why did it fall off in the first place?

She was in a hurry and wearing inappropriate foot wear. She is also fictional.

If there is an earthquake on Mars, is it called a marsquake?

Mars cannot have earthquakes as it does not have tectonic plates.

And finally, the ultimate question;

What is the meaning of life?

To have sex and dozens of children to keep your genetics in the world.
