What was that question, again?

Some questions are technically (in terms of language rules) correct. But they cannot be answered, since they are either meaningless or there is NO WAY that anyone can really, really answer them.

What Colour is Round?
Where does Love go when it Dies?
How long ago, exactly, did the Universe begin?

While these range from the silly to the seemingly scientific, they have one thing in common: They can't be answered conclusively, ever!

The problem is that some people answer them and do so with necessary authority. Why necessary, you ask? Well, the rule I have postulated is:

If you ask an Unanswerable Question,
you invite an Unquestionable Answer.

Think about it!
