The dumbest questions on Yahoo Answers
Now and then, I go to Yahoo Answers to see if there are any questions related to any of my hubs. Then I get a chance to back-link.
But it's getting weird. So weird in fact that it seems like the best way to calm down is write a hub about it.
I have been known to tell my mature students on occasion, "There are no dumb questions". But I've changed my mind.
Off we go then... The dumbest questions on Yahoo Answers are:
"I accidentaly my entire house help?"
I tried and tried, but just can't work out what this means. It could be burned down, or a flood. Or newly painted in florescent pink.
Maybe he or she filled the house with spelling mistakes.
"How laminated pine to be amplified?"
Of course! Amplify that laminated pine. Go Go Go. Maybe Jimi Hendrix has a pine-laminated electric guitar.
Perhaps 'amplification' means "Blow to bits". In that case it's easy. Use C4. The Mythbusters would.
Help! My sister is a CrazyHead!?
Yeah - you and 3 billion other people have this problem; and you think someone has an answer? Fat chance.
Survey : Do you think me and justin bieber look little bit alike?
The human mind is not incredibly skilled at carrying differences from one image to another, but anyway -
You be the judge.
SHOULD I BOTHER?!?!?!?!?
Frankly No. Your punctuation sux and you don't even know how to use the caps-lock key. So don't bother.
Should i be worried about my sister being past out from alcohol last night?
Is she the one with the crazy head?
It's about ionic bonding!?
Ironic bonding probably. Hell yes. It's all about that. Oh - I need to punctuate!? Small mercies though. At least the apostrophe in it's is correct. That might be an internet-first.
GUYZ NEED UA attentn suggest me!!?
This has it all. Intentional speeling errors, Unintensional spelling errors. RAndom CaPitalz. Not even a question but it's got god puncutadhuns!!?
Luckily the question has some clarification. Here is a sample:
"They told her that

What are some flirty things to say to my ex?
At last! A real question. But the mind boggles. Why would anyone even ask several million people this question? Who would answer? Apparently someone called Marcus would answer, and he said, "Tell him how much you'd like to suck on his pee pee."
I hate the internet.

I wondered how many muscles there are in the human face. It seems like an easy question but in reality there is not a readily useful consensus on the internet. So I decided to use this as an illustration as to why it is...
Find out the physics behind a crazy equation that Farnsworth wrote on the blackboard at Mars University. There is a lot more to it that you might realise.
In ancient China, craftsmen used skimmed milk and rennet with a little lime to produce a very good water resistant glue. You can do something similar using just skimmed milk and vinegar.
