Not so much stupid as silly

On the morning of 1st January 2000, as in millenium New Years Day, the day after possibly the biggest night of celebration the world has ever seen, for the occasion of what the date was:
"What is the date today?"
...remember all that noise last night?

I'm a High School Teacher. I'd use up all of Malcom's bandwith if I listed all the questions I get asked.

My most memorable was my first stupid question on my first day of teaching ever... it went like this (I was teaching a bio class at the time.)

Kid: [Raises hand] Are we going to look at Lizard Penises in this class?
Me: Um... no.
Kid: I'm sorry, Jeff paid me $5 to ask that question, here take $2 sir.

I let him keep the money but did tell him that the next time Jeff offered him money to do silly stuff, he should do it and we'd split the money.

biggrin

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
[They do not move.]

in all fairness...americans don't use the 24-hour clock (unless you're military). so if he was american and asking, it's a fair question.

can't think of any dumb questions at the moment, but i know i've got them.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

And when I was travelling and identified myself as a New Zealander, being asked, "is New Zealand connected to Australia by the Sydney Harbour Bridge?" Oh dear it was a serious question eek

I said perhaps, and thats FINAL.

I can remember a poi related one - "is that real fire?"



this led to utter confusion all around, mainly because no one could figure out what the hell else he could have possibly thought it was - fake fire??? confused



actually, I'm still confused by that one. Seems like a pretty basic thing really, being able to tell whether something is actually on fire or not... especially when you were as close to it as that person was.

But if he knew it was the afternoon, shouldn't the AM or PM have been obvious?

I've probably been the asker of more stupid questions than most...

back when i was in junior high, me and my best friend went to the movies and were watching the advertisements beforehand. there was one that was for soda, and it just showed a picture of a soda in the background, and in BIG letters said:



SO

DA



my best friend sat for a few moments, going, "so. da. so. da. i don't get it." i couldn't stop laughing for about 10 minutes. we still laugh about that now tongue



ok so not exactly a question, but close enough wink

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

I was out to dinner with my family, and aunt, uncle, and cousins. My dad ordered pistacio icecream, stating it was the house specialty, so a bunch of the whole group got some too.

So, when the ice cream came, my dad serisously asked "Oooh, this is *so* good, what kind of nuts are these again?" When he was the one to suggest it.

Oh good times good times. Many more, but can't remember them tongue

Once we were watching this movie called "Finding Nemo", and there's this bit where there is a sunkin submarine with mines floating all around the wreak.

Then, out of the mouth of miss "Will not be named as I fear for my life", she yells, "Watch out for the 'land mines'"...

My friend used to council for a beach camp and I'd occasionally come to help. They have things called 11:00 sun block and 1:15 sun screen (which rhyme, of course).

A boy came up to me and asked:

"What time is the 11:00 sun block?"
"Erm... 11:00."
"Oh... what about the 1:15 sun screen?"
"..."

some years ago, me and my coworkers were planning a night out together. we decided to go skating, and this place in town had midnight skating. the day before, we were all at work talking about it, and one girl asked, "what time is the midnight skate?"

she had lots of moments like that. dear girl, we loved her though. ubblol
