25 stupid questions (but very difficult to answer)

May 1, 2024

Questions without answer, of those that you are looking at the interlocutor with the face of having seen a UFO pass. Stupid questions do not always have a possible answer, since they are often born out of the supine ignorance of the person who formulates them.

But, What do we really talk about when we refer to a stupid question? They are basic misguided approaches, which do not have a minimum of coherence.

Stupid questions that few people can answer

In this article we have set out to collect 25 great examples of inconsistent questions that cost horrors to rethink correctly . Sometimes we will be faced with a coarse word game, in other cases simply the focus is curiously wrong.


1. Why "separate" is written all together and "all together" is written separately?

A linguistic curiosity that results in a paradox.

2. If the black box of the aircraft is indestructible, why do not they make the whole aircraft with the same material?

Probably, because the material of the black boxes is very dense or highly expensive. We could also ask ourselves why we call them black boxes, if they are usually orange (with the purpose of becoming more visible in case of disaster).

3. Why in the "open bar" parties the only thing that is not free is the bar?

Another lousy word game.

4. If "ordinary" is synonymous with vulgar, why "extraordinary" does not mean very vulgar?

Another elaborate linguistic game with little philosophical journey.


5. Why do we tighten the buttons on the remote control when it does not work properly?

The most sensible thing would be to change the batteries, but we cling to the hope that squeezing stronger will finally work.

6. Why are we more attracted to those people who tend not to indulge in sentimental relationships?

Maybe it's not a stupid question ... rather we humans are acting stupidly and incoherently. We tend to appreciate more the potential sentimental partners who do not give themselves to the relationship, precisely because uncertainty and emotional instability make us feel more dependent on that attention. That's how we are.

7. Why do we give more value to things that have a higher price?

Our judgment about the value of material goods is quite confusing and we tend to be guided by parameters as relative as price.


8. If the champagne is liquid, how can it be called "dry"?

The term "dry" only refers to the amount of sugar that is added to the champagne during one of its manufacturing processes.


9. Why do we wake up a few minutes before the alarm goes off?

It's a matter of psychological habituation. We are animals of customs, and there comes a time when our brain senses when they are left and a few minutes for the alarm to make its strident act of presence.

10. For a masochist, would not it be a prize to go to jail or receive mistreatment and torture by the police?

It's possible to be that way.

11. If three out of four geniuses do not have friends, and I do not have friends, can I officially consider myself a genius?

A type of fallacy that can make us believe things that are not real.

12. If love is blind, why do attractive people have it much easier?

Logically, there is an important part of the mating that has to do with the beauty that we perceive in the other person. "Love is blind" is just a saying that can be applied according to what circumstance, but not literally.


13. Would not it be appropriate to stop showering and drinking water to save water and help the environment?

In life there are priorities, and the amount of water that we really waste comes from other vices of our society.

14. Why are we still looking for a partner even though our previous experiences have been disastrous?

Because our instincts and social pressure lead us to make mistakes again and again.

15. Why do we call it "Planet Earth" if more than 70% of the surface is water?

There is a quite coherent answer for this astronomical question.

16. Why can not a psychologist be sad?

Can not a doctor get sick? This is one of those stupid questions that pertain to our guild.

17. What have the people of Lepe done to deserve to be the target of ridicule?

The jokes of Lepe (a small town in the province of Huelva, Spain) have been a source of laughter for many generations.We do not know where this tradition of mocking the Lepeños comes from, but they have certainly gained a totally undeserved bad name.


18. Where do jokes come from?

Maybe a question not as silly as the others. It is often said that jokes arise mainly in prisons, where the time to think nonsense is long. They are also born from the popular heritage, since they tend to be linguistic turns and puns.

19. Why is it impossible to sneeze with open eyes?

It is a physiological curiosity. When we force through the respiratory tract, the eyes close even if we try to keep them open.

20. What color will a chameleon look in the mirror?

It will continue to look the same color it had just before.

21. Why is it said that the law of gravity "was invented"?

Certainly, it was already there long before ... but it is usually expressed this way since, although gravity already had its effect in the world of physics, it had not been able to explain the phenomenon concretely, until Sir Isaac Newton arrived.

22. What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Although it seems an unanswered question, the truth is that any biologist will tell you clearly that the egg came first.

23. Is there any possibility, however remote, that there is someone physically the same as you in another part of the planet?

Science does not have a clear answer.

24. Why do people look so much at the mobile phone while life goes by?

A reflection that is not so absurd.

25. Why do people watch the summaries of time on television? Is not it easier to look out the window?

Meteorology also has its fans.
