You asked an honest question so I am going to give you an honest answer:

Although stupid questions are easily answered, the time it takes you to google the answers in simple English is ten seconds you do NOT have to research Neitzche or think about what Max Stiner really meant or to answer your parent's question about whether you want Stove Top or homemade stuffing for Thanksgiving this year or your toddler's question about whether s/he has to get ready for day care or of it is Saturday.

It also infuriates you to have to answer the same stupid question, which makes you more short-tempered with Mom and Junior.

Furthermore, when Teenaged Ted finishes the research he needed to do to get an A on his term paper and wants to ask you something he's been curious about all his life or Reporter Ralph wants to present a "non-biased balanced" view of US Politics or Sad Sally wants to know why her grandkids never visit her in the nursing home, you're too pissed off at the fash and stressed out at the wasted time to have enough compassion to give them what they need.

Then you look like a crazy or a big old meanie and the fash win.

That's why they keep asking dumb questions. They aren't going to stop. The only thing you have any control over is your own emotional reaction the immutable fact that there are dumb questions on Raddle that aren';t worth your time.

hth and if it didn't, I still need to close this laptop and go to work and pay my bills and take care of my family, so ttyl.
