Would humanity survive if everyone was male?

This is a stupid question with an obvius answer.Even if men could produce babies in the vats men are very unsuitable for taking care of the babies and young children and they have very little desire to do that.so even if men had a chance to survive technically they would just get extinct for psychological reasonsIn

What will happen if Google buys Apple and Microsoft?

Given the current state of Google there are two possibilities.1. It will become the coolest and most powerful company of world. It will have the resources and brain pool to actualize what we know as science fiction based on logical theories. We will also witness a loads

Can humans become immortal?

Immortality is very poorly defined, as far as I can tell. For example, if you could upload your consciousness into a computer and 'run' it forever, would you consider that immortality? Or would you say that because your current fleshy body would die, and have no knowledge

What is the one thing you want to change about your city and why?

Its the way metropolitan cities segregate waste, form a community, segregate it as source and recycle to the maximum extent possible to reduce the waste going in to the landfills.Would like to partner with e waste recycling plants to make sure chemicals are not going down the drain. Sustainable living as a lifestyle

In what towns will life be the same as it is today 30 years from now?

There exists a selection of exotic tribes that are completely secluded from society and are unlikely to be affected by any advances.

If I created a soda that tasted exactly like Coca-Cola, can Coca-Cola sue me?

Properly speaking, no. You can't trademark a flavor. They could sue you if they proved that you used their recipe to make your soda, but then they'd have to reveal their recipe to prove it, and they wouldn't want to do that.Now, realistically, if a behemoth like Coca-Cola wanted to financially ruin you with

What would the world do if aliens tried to contact humans?

Thanks for A2A.Read this article: 1952 Washington, D.C. UFO incident.This is not conspiracy nutter material. It is a matter of public record, and can only be erased historically by the Ministry of Truth. While there is anyone alive who remembers the event and the number of people who have collected and

How would life be different today if the earth was 50% larger?

  Assuming everything stays the  same exactly. The moon is still equally distant. that seems like the second biggest factor to the Earths new gravity from mass. Third would be a slight increase in temperature from the sun. I would guess that everything living would be about a third bigger.

What would it be like humans invading an alien planet?

Much like the movie of Starship Troopers:

What kind of animals could grow if humans disappear?

There'd be chaos for years. A lot of animals would become extinct and millions of carcasses would be left to rot. Scavengers and insects might flourish.Many dogs would die but if they were quick enough to form packs then I don't think they'd have to adapt much.Ants might thrive. They

How long would it take 160 humans to repopulate Earth?

In the absence of food-supply constraints (abundant land, etc.) and child mortality, it comes down to how many children each woman can have in her lifetime. 7 is a typical third-world figure. Humans can manage up to 10 with relative ease. Going beyond 10 is

What would you show of humanity to aliens if you could only show one thing?

We're talking the fact that our entire race's survival rests on this show and tell, right?First, and most important, I'd learn a bit about the alien society: what do they value, what do the aliens hold up as an ideal?Then whatever that

How would the world react if we had genetically modified humans that were superior to regular humans in every way?

Nothing would happen. We already have, brilliant scientists, world athletes, etc. Some are celebrated, some do great things and get hardly any recognition for it. The general public doesn't feel the need to be, super smart or super athletic, they just like being average. And, as average will always remain the norm, there won't change much.

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow morning with nothing?

I would start fresh because I have a good starting point where in my teen years I did in fact have nothing and no one to turn to, so I used my strong points and began working I thought to myself what am I good at that can get some work.

If you were given the opportunity to say one line that would be live-broadcasted to the entire world, what would you say?

Real Money represents Work Done.The definition of work done, is the same as is in any book of physics or thermodynamics. It becomes very complicated very quickly though.Remember too that work can be wasted and lost. So you can't just do any sort of work and expect

What will happen if everyone stops working?

If everyone was to stop working, the whole of the nation would collapseYou take it, everyone from Power station staff, sewage managers, food outlets, would have no one to help monitor their activity. They would malfunction, they would make errors, they would do all sorts without someone where to moitor them.

What would you do if you ran into somebody who in the past had done you great harm?

One thing I have learned is that well-crafted revenge, the kind that gets results and covers your tracks, is a lot of work. The same time and effort it would take to invest in such revenge could be better spent doing things I enjoy or things that benefit my future.That's not to

Can bees kill humans?

Yes. Maybe not with a well placed headbutt. But if you get stung enough you will die. How much is enough depends on how sensitive you are to bee stings. One might do it. Or thousands. But yeah, it can happen.I recall a news story about a trucker hauling beehives who wrecked. He was stung

What would happen if humans stopped reproducing for 30 years?

Society would collapse.  Population would plummet and the ability to recover would also plummet.  Social security would be over without an entire generation in the workforce.  Anyone childless and over 20 would probably never have children.  Many more between the ages of 10-20 would never have children as they would all

Could there be humans on other planets. Not aliens but humans?

The twists and turns that lead to life, and us, evolving on this planet we're numerous and unique. Take for example the fact that we have plate tectonics, a characteristic unique to Earth in this solar system and perhaps essential for life

Hypothetically, if you were going to kill someone, what would be the easiest way for you to do it and get away with it?

Take a prepaid envelope, and put a slow acting poison on the part that you lick. Address it to an address that looks convincing but which does not actually exist.Place this inside another envelope along with a letter.Depending on your target, the letter could be telling them they've

How long would it take for electricity to stop and the internet to go offline if humans disappeared?

Interesting question.  Firstly, the internet requires power for the web servers and comminication systems.   You would have to maintain power not just to the servers which are scattered around the globe but also to the communication systems every stop of the way.  Most power

What if everyone suddenly became a good person? Does the world need evil people to move forward?

Dear ! Do you mean that you want to see Hitler becomes saint, all of a sudden!!! ,and that too everyone on earth becomes beyond duality! !( good and bad, virtue and vice etc)It is all your assumptions only. we are all enveloped with MAYA ( ILLUSION)..The history of the limited individuality is history of the development

What will happen if the human race as a whole decides not to reproduce?

First, while the possibility is conceivable, general human follow-through on projects of this scale have never been successful. Seeing as sex is involved the proposition verges on dubious.Scenario One, if successful leads to extinction. But the universe is huge so the odds are it is an irrational act without broad meaning.Scenario Two;

Would you accept $20M but you must never leave your house until the end of your life?

No I wouldn't.But if I did, and with all that money - holy I would be one of the No.1 dominators in the online gaming world.I'd get all those ridiculous expensive deluxe versions of games and I'd put all my time and focus on being one of the top dogs.Especially

What would happen to man-made satellites if humans suddenly disappeared?

Telecommunications satellites are generally built to be disposable in that no one is going up and doing mechanical repairs on them.Low-earth orbit -- which are a few hundred to a thousand-plus kilometers up -- often are designed to re-enter the atmosphere and burn up after a

How long would it take for humans to be interplanetary?

To be honest, not that long. At first, humans will simply be exploring these new planets and reducing launch costs (the phase we are in now), then followed by Earth-Moon System infrastructure (next phase after that), and then the colonization explosion happens (the part where we start colonization of the Solar System). However, given time, I can expect

What would be the best activity for me to do if I only have one month to live?

Make a list of things that you wished to do and complete them one by one.Travel and live more with your closed ones.Try to start a conversation with that person you had once argued and you don't talk with them anymore now.Try apologizing for a past mistake that

The item directly to your right is the only thing you can use to stop a charging bear. How screwed are you?

Hey. It's an air molecule.The bear charges towards me, not spotting my sly smile.Ka-POW!The bear slams into the transparent air molecule, immediately knocked off its feet.The unconscious bear lies on the ground.

How would the world be if people were only allowed one child?

Well, we would become extinct.If you can only have one child per couple, then each new generation of children will be smaller than the previous, and this would continue until the human race is no more.HOWEVER, TECHNICALLY SPEAKING...Since it is

What if we, humans, had the choice to never die?

I imagine that we would invent a whole new system (a sort-of coming of age ceremony) to make this choice at age 18, because as a child, you could not even possibly begin to understand the consequences of choosing to live

What would happen if everyone in the world were moved to one continent?

I hate it when that happens.A few people, like heads of state, billionaires, and ranking military people always manage to get back home pretty quickly by sticking with their security professionals and summoning their helicopters and extraction teams. Others take years to get back. Billions more never make it at all.A lot depends

You are 1 of 10,000,000 people asked. You have the choice of getting any item you desire but if you choose the same thing as someone else, you die. What do you pick?

I'd choose the correct coffee mug. There is something ritualistic for me about having coffee and feeling that it's served well. I have my favorite that I keep in my office. I don't think anyone else owns one. It's the proper weight and feels

If I had 1.6 Quintillion dollars with the dollar having the same value as it does now, would it be possible to buy all of planet Earth? And how would the world treat me after?

Your condition is impossible.  The dollar would lose value like crazy as your massive injection of money went through the system.  The amount of money you've quoted is three orders of magnitude above current estimated values of M2.  Experience of this kind of shock to

Could an average house cat survive if all humans disappeared?

The question is actually taken up in the recent book The World Without Us. Alan Wiseman suggests that this would depend on whether the house cat can get outside or not. If the cat is trapped inside, it will dehydrate or starve. If it can find a way to get outside

What would happen to the human race if all humans could only reproduce once every 5 years?

We would experience a decrease in population growth.  Not by the 80% you might imagine as certainly a lot of people would be waiting for their window to push out kids.  If everyone was in the same window then schools would dramatically

If humans stopped reproducing, how long would it take for our entire species to go extinct?

We can't ay for sure as we do not know how old the last person alive would be.But to make an estimate, lets say science is right and the first person to live to 200 is already alive.So a child born today could make that age, but not really, as more people die, crafts

Can humans become immortal?

Yes, I would expect us to achieve biological immortality around the end of this century but life extension technologies developed in the next 15/25 years will enable many people already in middle age to live to see it's arrival. Unfortunately some people mix up biological and true immortality which is something we will probably never achieve for

My time machine broke. What should I do?

Standard policy might be:Oh, first of all: in the worst case, say if you have no way to meet up with your original organization, you may want to sell your time machine to the government, as unless you have some workable form of

If we knew the sun was to die in 10/50/100 years, would humanity survive?

No. We are 100% dependent on the Sun to live.A hundred years is not enough time for us to build Earth-abandoning technology. Sure, 100 years is a lot of time, specially in this fast-paced high-tech era we live, but even then, for the whole (or at least a sizeable portion)
