Quote of the day..

Being a computer geek, I am a huge fan of Scott Adams - creator of the Dilbert cartoons - if you've never heard of Dilbert, check him out here (http://www.dilbert.com/). This quote of the day popped up on my iGoogle homepage yesterday and tickled my funny bone - hope it brings a smile to your face too :)

(It particularly appeals to the teacher in me who constantly tells students "there are no stupid questions"!)

"If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions? - Scott Adams"

Yeah, I actually think there are loads of stupid questions. I'm faced with at least three per day.

LOL. That is funny! :-)

Reminds me of a saying my maths tutor at uni used to say. For some reason students would ask "can I ask a question?" and he'd respond "you just did, would you like to ask another?"

I guess "can I ask a question?" would have to rate up there as a stupid question. LOL. Although I still think the only stupid questions are the ones that are never asked.

Of course, when it came to maths, I'm not sure I understood enough to even come up with a question at times. I know, it doesn't make sense then that I was doing maths at university does it. LOL.
