For anyone wondering, the most children begotten to one man and one woman is 69. They had 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets between 1725 - 1765 in Shuya, Russia. Only 1 pair of twins died, the other 67 survived past infancy.

I'm sorry, there is no way I'm believing that someone had almost 70 children. People lie and make up stories in 2022 and gullible people believe ridiculous things, even now that we can usually fact check. Are we really trusting that someone didn't cook this story up in the 1700's and that the papers didn't just run with it? It's not like the record keeping was great back then and even if they cared for that many children, there was no DNA testing to make sure the kids were all legitimately the parents' lol. I'm gonna call massive BS on this claim.

There is no *dark* side of the moon (just a *far* side, which is bright half the time), so I said no one has seen the non-existent object.

The terms "dark side of the moon" and "far side of the moon" are synonymous even though the far side is not really dark.

Jan 14, 2021
People have seen "The Dark Side of the Moon" in 1973. It was a beam of light shot through a prism on a black background.

In any case there are so many things wrong with this question, because despite it hinting that it isn't asking about the Pink Floyd album that fact is unclear and it could also be a trick question. And the Moon is also spelled with a capital M.

Just change the question to "the far side of the Moon" so it's clear for everyone.

+8
Level 71
Jan 15, 2021
And then a decent nitpicker would ask, 'Far side from where?"
+3
Level 64
Mar 14, 2021
From Earth. Moon is stationary (not rotating on an axis) relative to Earth, so the far side is always the far side and there is no ambiguity to that.
+2
Level 74
Mar 14, 2021
Of course there is a dark side of the moon. It is nothing but its night side. In fact, everyone has seen it, whenever the moon is close to the sun, showing a thin crescent, or during a solar eclipse. Besides, if "dark side" was synonymous with "far side", then the near side should also be called "light side". But I've never heard it referred to as such.
+3
Level 64
Mar 14, 2021
Which sides gets light and darkness is always changing... because the Moon's orientation relative to the sun is changing. So that terminology does not have much practical usage. Whereas near side and far is constant (relative to Earth) so it makes perfect sense.

Some claim they cloned human cells, but not a viable human. The South Koreans say they had division of human cells in the 1990s but stopped very early. I think it was in the 1980s I saw a film called "Green Cows, Quaggas, and Mummies" made by a group of scientists at a university who study future trends - maybe New Mexico? They wanted to splice a plant gene into a cow to see if it could photosynthesize its own nutrients - the forerunner of GMO. (At the time we thought they were crazy.) They claimed someone had already started replicating human cells for medical purposes, but stopped the experiment early on because of ethical reasons. They were waiting for the super computer to be completed so the human genome could be mapped before they went on. They wanted to regenerate a quagga from tissue of one in a museum and maybe even try regenerating a mummy at some point, but they didn't really think a viable human being could be cloned and they worried about the ethics of even trying.

I see no reason to believe that anyone has cloned a human. I also see no reason to want to do so. The lambs that were cloned from Dolly aged rapidly and suffered from ailments that affect much older sheep... sheep the age of Dolly. If you clone a 30-year-old human, the clone's cells will be 60 when they're 30. They'll be starting off with cells that are the same age as the person who was cloned, condemning them to a short life. If you want kids so badly, adopt or foster.

Nah, that's called "delivering" a baby, not "giving birth" to one.

Mar 15, 2021
You can also call it "birthing a baby" if you're helping -- or birthing a calf if you're helping around the farm. But you're only "giving birth" if the kid is coming out of you.

Which makes me think of Aliens. Presumably you're not giving birth if an alien is erupting from your chest cavity. But since you're helping, are you birthing an alien?

Question 15 is VERY True cuz A Russian Prince named Vsevolod III had more than 20 children and has the nickname "the big nest", This also applies to a Moroccan Sultan, Ismail, who is generally thought to have more than a thousand children.

Men do not give birth. And something cannot be "very" true. It's either true or it isn't.

Faro never said that the Vsevolod III and Ismail gave birth. He just said they had a bunch of kids.
+2
Level 57
Mar 14, 2021
Correct.
+2
Level 67
Mar 14, 2021
But the question Faro is referencing asks if anyone ever *gave birth* to more than 20 children. So if he's saying it's "very true" because a prince and a sultan had more than 20 children, then yes, he is suggesting they gave birth.

No. I'm saying like they had lots of children, So I am saying their wives gave birth.

The cloning human question is incorrect. Embryonic stem cell research requires cloning humans via somatic cell nuclear transfer. Perhaps the question intended to ask about cloning a human and allow the cloned human to live to a certain age?
+1
Level ∞
Mar 14, 2021
The question is correct. It doesn't ask if a human cell has been cloned, it asks if a human has been cloned.
+1
Level 51
Mar 14, 2021
An human embryo is an entire human, not merely a cell or group of cells of a human. That's a proper stage of human development from fertilisation through 8 weeks. All cloning of any species begins mono cellular, just as life would sexually for any mammal, and develops progresses as it otherwise would (this is how Dolly the Sheep was cloned). So this is done with humans in ESCR at the very least if not for some other purpose. If we are talking about a cloned human living until adulthood, then you're absolutely right, and I think that's probably what most people are thinking, but the specific question at hand doesn't make any age stipulation.

But then all questions in all quizzes would be suspect because every religious belief would have to be taken into account. True or false: Almost all land belonged to a supercontinent called Pangea at the end of the Paleozoic era. Shintoism specifically says that the islands that make up Japan were created first, as they are today, so False should be accepted? I'd think this line of reasoning would make many quizzes needlessly complicated.

Um, no. 1.600 metres (aka 1.6 metres) is the height of a short-ish person. Unless you meant 1,600 metres? That would be a mile. Regardless, the clue is still correct, 1 mile = 1.609 km.

Before we get into the Methuselah argument, let's take a step back and first review the absolute verifiable scientific proof that without a doubt, no one in the history of mankind has ever lived to be 150 years old.
