  1. I believe so, for example, “2×2=4 yes?” Teachers encourage their pupils to ask questions by stating that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

    • It’s not the person that may be stupid, but at most the action, since everyone is guilty of doing stupid things here and there; and we learn by making mistakes; so we shouldn’t fear asking questions, should we?

      • I don’t know, I have heard some really dumb people ask questions. Watch any press conference and you will hear some really dumb people ask questions.

      • Aren’t they paid to have some knowledge about the topic they are attempting to cover.

        I watched several press conferences in the past couple weeks about a issue of water contamination that has affected my community. I was almost embarrassed that some of the questions that were asked. The most absurd part was that so many of those questions were phrased so the person giving the briefing could answer with a yes/no. Or even worse, they asked the exact same question as the person before them.

        I do believe that an important questions must be asked and if someone has confusion, they should ask questions until they understand.

        But there are some really dumb people who are professional questions askers.
