The interesting thing about the impossible chronologies is that when entering people individually, the system will flag if the date of birth is after the mother's date of death etc. (useful for catching typos - e.g., 1965 entered for 1865). But there is no comparable safety net when people copy from other trees, plus the tree-hint system makes composites of all trees for the same apparent individual, so there can be wide variations just because of that.
