Think about these

I'm assuming for #5 that the zero is not absolute zero(kelvin). So there's nothing wrong there, although you should just have the kelvin temperature value.

Then convert back to the relevant scale.

#8 This does not imply that God can do anything, he can certainly do more than what humans are confined to but he can't do something that is impossible. Omnipotence refers to an infinite amount of power, not that everything is possible, there is not infinite resources, he does have infinite power, so he can't make the a rock that he can't lift. Some people falsely think this means that he is not all-powerful/almighty.

Fun :)

1. Let's say (hypothetically) there is a bullet, which can shoot through any barrier. Let's say there is also an absolutely bullet-proof armour, and nothing gets through it. What will happen, if such bullet hits such armour?

This bullet will never hit such armor, since they cannot coexist. Each one negates the other's very existence.

2. Can a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?

Yes. The man drowns x times, is revived x times, until he either learn to swim, or grow gills...
More seriously, one needs to define the "eternal life" granted, and perhaps how long will the fountain stands as it is.

3. Your mission is to not accept the mission. Do you accept?

I accept half-heartedly. Oh, lookie here! A regular workday paradox!

4. This girl goes into the past and kills her Grandmother. Since her Grandmother is dead the girl was never born, if she was never born she never killed her grandmother and she was born.

The girl comes from timeline a) and kills her grandma in timeline b)

Since she could get to exist in timeline b) she can stay, slaughter her cousins, mate with her dad and go shopping with her kiddie b) version for all I care.
Nothing whatsoever has changed in timeline a) if she's to go back there at the time of her earlier departure.

5. If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, "it will be twice as cold tomorrow,".... What will the temperature be?

The Weather Channel you describe are idiots. Make it "3.1416 as sunny" or a 'thousand times as stormy", that would hold as little meaning. Cold, hot, etc. are subjective. The statement lacks a base comparative: "We've gained two degrees compared to yesterday!" would be correct. Comparing numerical value is relevant, comparing scales is not.

For instance, saying a Richter scale 6 earthquake is twice as dangerous as a scale 3 earthquake,would be similarly stupid.

6. Answer truthfully (yes or no) to the following question: Will the next word you say be no?

- Nyet, tovarish.
- Sí, claro que sí. :)

7. What happens if you are in a car going the speed of light and you turn your headlights on?

Nothing your eyes could see... Boring. Here's a more interesting one:
What happens when you turn on a flashlight when you are in a car going the speed of light ?

8. I conclude with this challenge:

Wrong. Quod erat demonstrandum. :)

Let the God Almighty create a stone, which he can not pick up (is not capable of lifting)!

I'll read that sentence as : "Can an omnipotent being create a stone that he is not able to lift ?" and replace 'omnipotent being" with 'Mickey Mouse".

a) Mickey Mouse creates a stone. A regular stone is OK. A Daffy Duck statue is OK too.
b) Mickey Mouse makes himself weaker until the stone is too heavy to lift.
c) Mickey Mouse loses his virginity to Minnie, and renounces his impotency omnipotency.
d) Mickey Mouse has henceforth created a stone he's not able to lift, and marries Minnie.

(but yeah, he was able to lift it at some point, but at least that's a happy-ending story)
