Please note, this thread is actually an ongoing game.

After answering the stupid "quetion" by the previous poster, you are supposed to ask a stupid quetion yourself to continue the game.

I see! So, it is now my turn to ask a stupid quetion. Perhaps this question:

Suppose I make an upside down family tree. I appear at the top, my two parents below, their parents are shown below that, etc. etc. Then at the nth place there are 2^(n-1) people. But for n = 34 this exceeds the current World population and 34 generations back there were far fewer people than there are today. So, what is wrong?

At some point in the family tree you will have ancestors from West Virginia USA, where inbreeding among family members is common practice. (Note, part of the game is to come up with a stupid answer )

Because time doesn't really exist.

Why do we need to conserve energy, given that energy is conserved anyway?

We need to conserve and use the energy at least for that matter that nobody else gets it.

My class bought computers to learn on them. So, if there are 3 computers on table and you take one pc away, how many computers are left on the table?

None. The power cord of the one taken away dragged the rest of them off the table top and onto the floor.

What's red?

There is no color, because there is no light.

For lack of being a potato.

If potatoes have eyes on all sides, why are they so often captured by humans?
