Yesterday my toddler son was playing with this little barn toy and my wife was doing all the different animal sounds for him, making him laugh, the normal cute baby shit. Then we had the following exchange: Of relevant context: we live in Texas, on a horse ranch, and have raised at various points dogs, cats, parrots, horses, goats, parrots, several different types of pigs and yes, even sheep. I always say there's no such thing as stupid questions, only stupid people. Sometimes stupid people get in way over their heads and try to verbally claw their way out. Other times normally smart people lapse into moments of stupidity where their brain backfires out of their mouth in the form of a question. Focus: Stupid questions/acts. Personally, at work, in class, wherever. If the stupid question/brain backfire act had any kind of fallout, all the better. Alt. Focus: Have a question you're afraid to ask in person because you think it might sound stupid? Behold, the anonymity of the Internet! Ask away in here, and we *promise* we won't make fun of you.
