Proof of the existence of stupid questions

Students asked so many stupid questions (stupid might be harsh) when I was an adjunct. I remember I’d give some big long passionate lecture about something (computer programming courses) with some example of sorts. After constructing an example and talking about the mechanics of it all, why/how it works, why it’s better than other solutions, etc someone would raise there hand and ask “is that an upper or lower case letter”?



“Oh, did I do that?”


There are no stupid questions. Just stupid people asking questions.


“How was I supposed to know Trump was racist?”
