As a PR ploy, the web site “ask” aka “Ask Jeeves” revealed 10 questions that they
are unable to answer. The questions, of course, are the typical “liberal arts major”
BS questions used to allow hours of arguments as they don’t bother being insightful.
But I view that the 10 questions as trivial to answer, as I will do below to help the clueless wonders.
(Ask Jeeves folk: my answers are copyright but I do license them inexpensively ;-)
The key element of the 10 questions seems to be ambiguity: they each have words that have multiple definitions depending
on a number of independent variables.
This is a classic example of cluelessness: you can only think in terms of the data/information/knowledge/wisdom that is
available in the mushy neural computer known as “your brain”. Likely that neural computer is under the
influence/bias of multiple chemicals (ex. Testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, etc) that dynamically influence the
relative neural programming.
