Q.) An archeologist finds a coin that was dated 48 BC. How did he know that it was a fake?
A.)Because "BC" stands for "Before Christ." Before Christ. Christ was not yet born when the coin would have been made, so the date would have been impossible.

Q.)What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?
