Ask Jeeves, apparently a popular search engine not with Kenyans am I right? released a list of 10 unanswerable questions that have been queried on the site for the last 10 years.

This list is based on some 1.1 billion queries made on the site since it’s inception in the year 2000.  Read more about it here

Here is my take on these unanswerable questions..

1. What is the meaning of life?

Okay fine, the internet is the cause of and solution to many of life’s problems, but do people really expect answers to some of these questions?? A website is run by a human being, just like you, he definitely would not know the meaning of life. What do they expect the answer to this question to be? And what next if they were ever to get the answer to this question?

2. Is there a God?

Really?! People expect Jeeves to have an answer to this?! So if he said God does not exist, does it mean they would stop believing? But I doubt anyone who believed in God would ask such a question just saying.

3. Do blondes have more fun?

I am black and I think I have more fun than most blondes ….. in kenya :p So I am guessing people who ask this question are contemplating dyeing their hair blonde, or getting new blonde friends….

4. What is the best diet?

I think this is a question which actually warrants an answer albeit it may elicit numerous valid responses. But it is a sensible question to ask in my opinion, the real question is, given that there are different answers to this question, which response should be taken as the gospel truth?

5. Is there anybody out there?

The people who ask this question must be extremely bored and lonely, get a life!

6. Who is the most famous person in the world?

Okay I get why Jeeves may have a problem with this question right here. Currently trends change daily if not after every few hours as people rise to fame over one mundane thing or the other. Is there really a means of knowing who is the most famous person ever?!

7. What is love?

That’s a very valid question that I would really like to get an answer to! I tried asking Jeeves myself, and I was not very satisfied with the response. If you are confused just give it a shot and ask him, I doubt you will get the answer you are looking for!

8. What is the secret to happiness?

It’s a secret, you think Jeeves is in on it?? He clearly is a blabber mouth so your really wasting your time trying to get the answer from him.

But I can give you the answer, happiness is what you make of it, you control your own happiness, the end!

9. Did Tony Soprano die?

I was not a fan of The Sopranos so I do not really give a damn. The real question should be what the hell goes on in Lost? Was it a dream they all had together? Was it real? Did the island exist?

10. How long will I live?

My cousin’s friend was dumb enough to ask a Ouija board when she will die, I think the board said when she was 26. If I am not wrong, I think she is still alive, guess she did not fall for it, otherwise she would be dead from paranoia and stuff.

The only thing I can say to people who pose such questions is, what is wrong with you??? Why would you want to know how long you will live for? More so, why do you think some website will provide you with the answer?!




In conclusion, the people who ask these questions maybe just needed someone to talk to and did not know where to turn to, plus they had a lot of free time in their hands : )



  1. Lol I didn’t even know there was such a website, hahahaha. I would probably answer the exact same way you did, but seriously, LOST, WHAT WAS THAT???!! Like seriously??
    Yaani I wasted like I don’t know how long watching that series only for it to end with some strange unexplained circumstances and some meeting in a church (symbolizing heaven or what?)

    • I think us Kenyans are better acquainted with google.
      As for Lost, i only watched the 1st season, a few episodes of season 2, and the finale of which I fell asleep after Claire met with the Rockstar dude and Evangeline Lily’s character. But I am glad I am not the only lost one :p
