Because the computer is a wonderful tool for enhancing your educational experience?

This concept is something that always bugs me. They say the only stupid question is one that is not asked. I however say the only stupid questions are those that are intended to be stupid.

I say,

"There are no stupid questions. Just stupid looks when you ask me a question that's really dumb, and I'm trying to keep from laughing at your dumb ass."
