Why do they make ballet dancers stand on their toes? Why not just get taller girls?

I don't know but I do know why female contortionists are to be valued as rare treasures.

Re: are "dumb" questions dumb, or ...

I don't mind answering questions that are Google-able, sometimes people don't know the right terms or are in a pinch and not thinking clearly. It happens. Personally I find it a little lame that people will waste the time to reply with a nonsense "use google" response instead of answering the question. If someone asks something you don't think is relevant, don't type and move on.

Some dumb questions I've seen are dumb because the question is presumptuous. Something like "What's the best way for me to sail around with a bazooka?" It implies there is a best way.

Or the "Hey guys I have no idea what I'm doing and haven't bothered to even get a drop of seawater on myself but I want you to type ten paragraphs telling me about boats."

Why do you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway...?
