The universe/ irony game (give an opinion)

The game is simple:
There is no base of operations
The way to play is to be an exeption to a supposed impossible

Example the platypus:
This is an animal that lays eggs has a bill and flat tail, has shootable poison, and finds food through electronic change.

Another is a black hole can live forever has more mass than possible time flows inward and so on

These things by our beliefs should not exist they are the exeptions. Now tell me if something is wrong with this or tell me your thoughts on it.

    Mar 7 2013: We made up all of these supposed exceptions, who's to say that the platypus is an exception? by our definition it is, which only means that our explanation isn't right. They came before we decided to put rules on 'what should' and 'should not' happen.
    You said it yourself, "by our beliefs". So anything can be an exception to us if we want to believe it. Or nothing is an exception, depending on what we believe.
