    Questions about celebrities and questions about silly pointless things. I guess there is no such thing as a bad question if you truly don't know but want to find out. Questions that people already know the answer to is annoying as well.

    I've been a vegetarian for about 19 years.

    "How do you get your protein?"
    "So you eat rabbit food?"
    "You don't eat meat? What do you eat then??"

    *sigh* I used to get more irked than I do now. But it's just soooo old hat. Please come up with new, creative ways to insult me lol

    While I don't always appreciate some questions, neither do I let them ruin my day or dictate my mood.

    I dislike questions that have definite answers that can be found by going to Google or one of the other search engines of one's' choice.  It strikes me as laziness on the part of anyone who asks a question that could be easily answered with 5 minutes or less of research.  Why does anyone think we should all do their research for them?

    I prefer questions that are mostly, and ideally, asking for opinion.  Often times there is no right or wrong to opinion, there is simply different opinion. 

    Of course opinion that disregards facts is another matter.  One is entitled to their own opinion but not to their own facts.  I've noticed a lot of people like to treat facts they dislike as if they were opinion instead of fact.  I think that is because an awful lot of people are confused about what is fact and what is opinion.  I wrote an article about that, incidentally, to help people understand the difference.

    Anyway, questions that can easily be answered with just a couple of minutes of research on Google are the sort that I find irritating.  I'm surprised that after all these years computers and the Internet have been around, so many people do not know how to research a question they have.  It isn't just older people who are computer/Internet illiterate.  In fact many older people have embraced the Internet and enrich their lives with it everyday.  It has been a blessing I think, to many people who are shut-ins.  What surprises me is the number of young people who are  computer illiterate (under 60).

    Questions that include "wrong facts".  (Especially political or religious ones, where the views of the person asking the question are blatantly obvious!)

    Hi Grace, I have often heard it said that the only stupid question is one that is never asked.
    The only questions that really irks me are: How old are you? or other personal questions that is nobody else's business but mine. But even that did not make me go into a HUNNIC frenzy. But then I did know what a HUNNIC frenzy is?  But being a "logophile" I did look it up. and no question ever made me  go into a HUNNIC frenzy?
