[Dr. Frederick B. Cohen said:]
When you say "impossible" in a scientific context, [...]

Given that the list is for detailed practical discussion of real bugs
and security problems, I would assume that we're talking about
"impossible" in a practical context, rather that in a scientific
one. This, most of the time, is what you call "infeasible" in a
scientific context. I guess scanning a network with an electronic
microscope is not absoultely impossible, but certainly is practically
impossible (and yes, I'm taking it with humor :-) ).

Best regards.
