I asked a dumb question the other day.
I’m not saying it was dumb to ask the question, just that it was pretty simple. I am actually fond of asking stupid questions. The reason why I like asking stupid questions is because often you get some really smart answers, answers that are a lot more complex and interesting than your original question. On top of that you get people to actually think about things and why they are the way they are.
A lot of people won’t ask stupid questions because they’re scared. Nobody wants to tell the emperor he has no clothes.
