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.

The golf question and answer don't quite match. The question should be, "Has anyone ever shot a birdie or better on every hole in a single round of golf?"

The question, as currently framed, is not limited to a single round.

Changed the question so it's clear it has to be a single round.

"The record for most birdies in a single round is 10" in the answer is the PGA record, but not accurate for the most ever recorded. Guinness lowest round ever of 55 had 12 birdies and 2 eagles.

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.

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.

I would bet that #9 & #13 have both happened, just without verification.

I'm sure someone has cloned a human at this point and I'd be shocked if some pro didn't walk the local Muni course and birdie every hole at some point in history.

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.

Using lunar months instead of years puts Methuselah (age 969) at just over 74 years, which would indeed be very old for the time. But... that doesn't explain Abraham, who the bible says died at 175.

And, as I pointed out here, if the ages in the genealogy in Genesis were referring to lunar months, then Adam was 75.2 and had Seth when he was 10.5; Seth begat Enosh at 8.5; Enosh had Kenan at 7.3; Kenan was a mere 5.7 when he had Mahalalel, who was 5.3 when he had Jared. It's unlikely that the Bible wanted us to believe that 5-year-olds were fathering children. It's far more likely that the ages were intended to be understood as Hebrew calendar lunisolar years to make the world thousands of years old without having to describe hundreds of generations of people.

Kinh Dương Vương, the first king of Vietnam, lived to 260. Basically every culture has its heroes of antiquity who lived far past what is considered possible. Its not just the Bible.

This quiz deals with things for which we have hard evidence.

When I was in first grade I was terrified that for second grade I'd get Mrs. Coughlin, who was 110 years old & look like Margaret Hamilton from The Wizard of Oz (minus the green skin). Fortunately she retired at the end of the year & I was spared.

The "dark side of the moon" question is misleading, since there's no true dark side. It should be "far side of the moon."
