    Stupid
In summary, a group of individuals are discussing a new forum and its purpose of asking and answering "stupid questions." They discuss topics such as how long it takes to reach 1000 posts, the existence of the old forums, the best superpower, an elevator that goes sideways, and the reasons behind posting in this forum. They also explore the question of why they ask questions and the possible theories that have not been invented. Eventually, the conversation turns to the expansion of the universe and the orbit of planets around stars.

Woohoo, a brand new forum to post in! Just thought it didn't feel quite right without this here. So in the tradition of PF 2.0 ask a stupid "quetion" and get a stupid answer back.

So to begin... How long do you think it takes to reach a 1000 posts in this topic again?

Did you really have to misspell Question again?
 
  • #3
I did have to mispil qestion again as I had never done it before.

When did I last consider not asking this question?
 
  • #4
A week from next tuesday.

  • #5
Only in my day dreams.

Are the old forums still somewhere on the internet ?

(This seems like a pretty good question (and thus doesn't belong here :wink: ) but...)

Schrodinger would probably think so.

What's the best superpower?
 
  • #7
Self-levitation. More precisely, the ability to produce the effect of a small gravitational force (< ~ 2 G's) upon one's own body.

The ability to pass through solid objects would be the best superpower; but, without self-levitation, the first (and last) solid object that you pass through would likely be the Earth.



What do you call an elevator that goes sideways?

My location is The Universe - anybody else here ?
 
  • #12
Sure, I'm here.

Why didn't I post under this topic on PF2?
 
  • #13
Because you thought that posting without reading through the 1000 previous posts wouldn't be fair on the people who had been there the whole time, not realising that the thread hadn't progressed at all, and you hadn't actually missed anything.

More importantly though, Why did you decide to post here this time?

Why would anyone want to bother an old man so, I never, if you had an ounce of, well, you know, it's like this, well that actually, but then again to participate in such a ranting vent would be counterproductive to the intuitive nature of the transcendental metaphysical reality of the expired expression that had been inspired so, well you should all be smart enough to figure out the rest, right?

Because, if you answered it with a "why" you'd never stop asking questions.

Why does "Another God" see with only 'one eye'?
 
  • #33
(The eye is supposed to be rolling, but I have had troubles with the avatar doobie.)

Why does "Another God" see with only 'one eye'?

Oh, another god doesn't see with one eye. Another God just hides behind the pretence of an eye, avoiding the real world by filtering all of reality through a bias inducing organ.

Does anyone here have any idea where that eye comes from?
