haha

most of the answers/answerers on that site are real immature.

I think a better test is on questions that have known answers. I saw a question recently asking if cars that can burn Ethanol can also burn Corn Oil. There were some relatively good answers given.

That said, I am amused at your question. :)

I'm totally amazed at the number of answers in such a short time. Nice community!

And yes, I should probably add a more answerable question as well, here goes:

Ah, that's a good question to try, Philipp. Like the old TV commercial goes from he 1970's, the answer is an "Ancient Chinese Secret".

My favorite is this one:

"We haven't visited the aliens because we still don't know any. and why they haven't visited us (if they are) because they don't know if we are or because maybe they want us to visit them first."

And more answers keep rolling in ...

I have a feeling that they are worse than liveQNA

Yahoo! Answers is a lot better that LiveQnA. It hs buzzing with action and it has a good points system so people feel inclined to answer, and post, and vote etc. I love it.
