How long would it take to compile the best answers in all the subjects?
And what constitutes a good answer?
The answer is: LITERALLY FOREVER.
1. There is never an end to NEW subjects. When I was growing up in the 1950's, for example, "computers" weren't generally even known to exist--let alone cell phones, iPads, iPods, texting while driving, the Internet, WikiLeaks, etc., etc., etc.
2. The definition of "what constitutes a good answer" will always be a source of contention--just look at the dramatic difference between what Democrats and Republicans consider to a "good answer" to the nation's economic woes at this time.
Another way to phrase it: Ain't never gonna happen!
Evidence and sound reasoning.
A good answer is always supported by facts.
Ex: if you're writing a poem commentary, your rational must include lines and words as support
Ex: If you're going an history project, you must use historical dates, different sources, etc
Ex: If you're going a science research project, you must always support your answer with observations/test results.
The length depends on the subject, topic, and question so there's no answer to that.
Also, like Ghost said, a "Good" answer is relative to the teachers or popular viewpoint. What one person thinks is good is not necessarily the viewpoint of another.
I have outlined two things what should guide you towards a "good" answer.
You answered your own question -- "nobody knows". Define "all subjects" and "best answers" -- if you succeed, we'll all be amazed, since no one has done so for 4000+ years
and, of course, in the real world, whatever answers we know today will be replaced by what we learn tomorrow
You silly folks dont remember that this has already been done for us. The bible even contains the best answers for questions that haven't even been thought of yet. Any answer that begins with..".And god said" is the only answer that matters. Ok, I cant keep a straight face any longer, lmao at the simple folks that believe what I just wrote. Problem is it's not a laughing matter. It's the final stages of the collapse of America as a second rate country. We have already slipped into the lower rankings and risk dropping out of the running all together. .
