1. Which is the closest star to Earth?
2. What life will most likely be found on Mars?
3. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt the exact number of men and women in the World! Prove me right (or prove me wrong??).

Some people are average, some are just mean.

1) Danny DeVito. Just kidding, he's not even the shortest movie star. It's the sun.
2) Earth life. Probably bacteria we accidentally sent there unless we find ourselves there first.
3) You're wrong. You don't know how many people there are in mines deep inside the earth. (Though deep is very relative. You can probably guess how many there are beneath the earth's crust. And that's just a thin shell, all things considered.)

1 and 2 are correct. Martians will be us, according to Carl Sagan. 3, however, 'tis not; or at least, so it seems, to me. I KNOW the exact number. But, how can this be?! THAT is the question. All of a sudden I feel very important.

Perhaps time will put You on the right track.
 
Who, what, when, where and why? Actually, the question is: "When?". Does that help?

Yes, I do. Not right now I don't . . . Perhaps time will put you on the right track. How 'bout time travel!?  
 
Alright. *SPOILER*

No more fulling around. I think. I know the exact number of the people in the World (drums in the background), I don't know, say 4 billion years ago. Yep. The answer is not exactly satisfactory, but it is still edible.

You shouldn't use the present them.
 
This being said, how large is the shadow of you doubt?

Well then. I believe you have a point. I guess temporal mechanics is not my strong suit.
