LONDON - Do blondes really have more fun? Does God exist? And what happened to TV gangster Tony Soprano in the end? -These are just of the top 10 unanswered questions on the website Ask Jeeves.

Other weighty issues include mortality, the secret of happiness and what is the meaning of life, in questions compiled by the Ask Jeeves.

Ask Jeeves answers about 16 million questions a month, but admits that even its well-informed butler figurehead is occasionally at a loss for some queries.

“Jeeves prides himself on being able to answer 16 million questions a month and has been doing so for ten years now,” the Telegraph quoted Nadia Kelly, of Ask Jeeves, as saying.

“But even we have to admit that occasionally there is going to be a question where there is no simple answer so we’re letting our users do it themselves,” she added.

The biggest unanswerable question, according to research by Ask Jeeves, is, unsurprisingly, ‘what is the meaning of life?’ followed by ‘is there a God?’
