25 stupid questions (but very difficult to answer)

There are questions that, perhaps because of how they are formulated, escape common sense.

25 stupid questions (but very difficult to answer)
Unanswered questions, the kind that keep you looking at the interlocutor with the face of having seen a UFO pass by. Stupid questions do not always have a possible answer, since they are often born from the supine ignorance of the person who asks them.

But what are we really talking about when we refer to a stupid question? They are erroneous approaches of base, 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 be able to correctly restate . Sometimes we will be faced with a crude play on words, in other cases the approach is curiously wrong.

1. For what reason "separate" is written all together and "all together" is written separately?
A linguistic curiosity that results in a paradox.

2. If the aircraft's black box is indestructible, why don't they make whole planes out of the same material?
Probably, because the material of the black boxes is very dense or highly expensive. You might also wonder why we call them black boxes, if they are usually orange in color (in order to become more visible in the event of a disaster).

3. Why at “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 doesn't "extraordinary" mean very vulgar?
Another tricky linguistic game with little philosophical journey .

5. Why do we press the buttons on the remote control hard when it does not work properly?
The most sensible thing to do would be to change the batteries, but we cling to the hope that pressing harder will finally work.

6. Why are we more attracted to those people who tend not to indulge in romantic relationships?
Maybe it is not a stupid question ... rather it is humans who act stupidly and inconsistently. We tend to appreciate more potential romantic partners who do not indulge in the relationship, precisely because uncertainty and emotional instability makes us feel more dependent on that attention. So we are.

7. Why do we give more value to things that have a higher price?
Our judgment on the value of material goods is quite confusing and we are usually guided by such relative parameters as price.

8. If champagne is liquid, how can it be called "dry"?
The term "dry" only refers to the amount of sugar added to champagne during one of its manufacturing processes.

9. Why do we wake up a few minutes before the alarm goes off?
It is a matter of psychological habituation. We are animals of habit, and there comes a time when our brain intuits when there are only a few minutes left for the alarm clock to make its strident act of presence.

10. For a masochist, wouldn't 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 have no friends, and I have no 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 so much easier?
Logically, there is an important part of 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 to the letter.

13. Wouldn't it be appropriate to stop showering and drinking water to save water and help the environment?

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

14. Why do we keep looking for a partner even when our previous experiences have been disastrous?
Because our instincts and social pressure lead us to make mistakes over and over again.

15. Why do we call it "Planet Earth" if more than 70% of the surface is water?
There is a fairly consistent answer to this astronomical question.

16. Why can't a psychologist be sad?
Can't a doctor get sick? This is one of those stupid questions that concern our guild.

17. What have Lepe's people done to deserve to be the target of ridicule?
The jokes of Lepe (a small town in the province of Huelva, in Spain) have been cause for laughter in many generations. It is not known where this tradition of mocking the Lepeños comes from, but they have certainly earned a totally undeserved bad reputation.

18. Where do jokes come from?
Maybe one 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 are usually linguistic turns and puns.

19. Why is it impossible to sneeze with your eyes open?
It is a physiological curiosity. By forcing through the airways, the eyes close even though we try to keep them open.

20. What color will a chameleon looking in the mirror be?
It will continue to look the same color as it did just before.

21. Why is the law of gravity said to be "invented"?
Certainly, it had been there long before ... but it is usually expressed that way since, although gravity already had its effect in the world of physics, it had not been possible to explain the phenomenon concretely, until Sir Isaac Newton arrived.

22. What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Although it seems like an unanswered question, the truth is that any biologist will clearly tell you that the egg came first.

23. Is there any possibility, however remote it may be, that someone physically like you exists in another part of the planet?
Science does not have a clear answer.

24. Why do people look at the mobile phone so much while life goes by?
A reflection that is not so absurd anyway.

25. Why do people watch summaries of time on television? Isn't it easier to look out the window?
Meteorology also has its fans.
