This year, I have many goals. Chief among these are answering some of life’s most challenging questions.

We humans have always pondered our existence, trying to find meaning in a vacuum. And since my time on earth is numbered, I’m not going to focus on the infinite.

My focus is on the bigger picture: Solving the Great Mysteries.

10 things to solve in 2018

10. What is the airspeed velocity of a full-laden swallow?

9. How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

8. Will the serial comma become standard, again?

7. Is popping your knuckles really bad for you?

6. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
