Unanswerable questions

This could make a good discussion. The web site Ask Jeeves ran a competition to answer their top ten questions that they consider ‘unanswerable’ (in the sense of being able to point to THE answer). These are the questions:

  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Is there a God?
  • Do blondes have more fun?
  • What is the best diet?
  • Is there anybody out there?
  • Who is the most famous person in the world?
  • What is love?
  • What is the secret to happiness?
  • Did Tony Soprano die?
  • How long will I live?

I was also fascinated at the submitted answers to question 1, so many of which came down to a popular interpretation or wording of existential philosophy.
