Hub Pages Question and Answer Raves/Rants
Find a question to answer
I love to answer questions and I love to read the answers to other questions. Sometimes I just ask questions because I am bored and can't think of anything to do. This is when I ask my best questions. That's when I ask the most intriguing questions like "How many grains of sand are there on the beach?" and "How many needles are there on a pine tree?" and "How many hairs are on a dog?"
Am I the only one?
I love to look through the questions. But, really, am I the only one who looks at the questions and and thinks, "Is this for freakin real?"
I wonder what in h-e double toothpicks motivates people to ask some of the questions? Some of them are incredible.
I am starting to see them in categories:
- I need to ask a question no matter how mundane and ignorant I sound
- I want to practice my English, asking questions might be a good way
- I want to ask a question that might embarrass someone I know
- I want to see if the worst question in the world could be understoood by anyone

I thought spam was canned meat!
What the heck do people think they are accomplishing by spamming a question and answer column? I just can't figure it out. For example,
May i know maple pest control is best for commercial pest control services in canada??
What kind of question is that? I think it is an ad. And have you ever seen such a queer way of asking it? May I know maple....... Are you kidding me? Do you think that is clever? Click on it and it says maple pest control is best!
Holy cow! We were better off when we were trying to get the key off of the can so that we could open the can and fry the spam. Ah, remember the good old days when mom would serve blackened spam for breakfast?
I thought I was an idiot, now I'm not so sure.
I admit it, I am not the brightest bulb, nor the sharpest tool. C'mon now even I can see that some of the questions posted on hubpages are near moronic!
For example, how to stay along with erection?
What the heck does that mean? Yes this is the kind of question we all ask in the carpool in the morning. "Hey fellas, I have a question, "how to stay along with erection?" I'm absolutely certain that this would increase my confidence and standing with the carpool fellas. It is almost certain that I would gain respect and be kindly regarded for opening such a topic and giving us a thoughtful discourse for the impending journey.
I cannot for the life of me figure out what the question even means. If I could figure it out, I might ask my doctor. "Hey doc, how to stay along with erection?"
What is the dumbest question I can ask?
Geez, do some people sit around and try to think of the ding-battiest things in the world to ask about? Like, I wonder what is in my sock? Could it be a foot?
How about this recent question?
is there a snake on Cleopatra's head
Now I know that this is an important question without a doubt. It must be common curiosity that drives us to ask these questions.
My perineum hurts!
And now this question:
Hi Im using ACV to cure my genital warts. It works amazingly - ish!!! But, as a side effect i...have inflamed genital area. It hurts like hell and i can notice that area between anus and vag opening is swollen! PLZ HELP ME!!!
Are you kidding me? Who the heck would ask such a question in a Q&A forum? Oh my God! Maybe someone should consult their nurse network or maybe go see the doctor who prescribed the medication.
Most of the questions are ok.
I have to admit that most of the questions are just fine and deserve the attention of the readers. It is those few though that make me scratch my head and wonder, "What in the world were they thinking?"
I guess that in a sense, they provide us with an amusing entertainment value. I would just like to meet some of these people some day and see if they are anything like the people they seem to be.
