Depends whether your definition of "impossible" is a mathematical 
definition or an engineering definition.

In practice, enumerating the different permutations to permit all 
possible orderings of 24 elements, some of which can be repeated, is 
impossible on the kind of computers that are available for purchase 
today, whatever the computer science theory might say.
