That said, it's pretty important to know when and why to ask questions. Since today is the birthday of Erwin Schrodinger, in honor of his cat experiment, I thought a brief explanation of questioning may be in order. Please note, this is an opinion based explanation of questions. So if you disagree, that's cool.
I believe that you should not ask questions if you're not prepared to hear every possible answer. Don't ask a girl out unless you're prepared for her to say yes OR no. Don't ask someone if they are mad at you unless you're expecting a yes as much as a no. To open the cat box or to leave it and assume the status of the cat? Before you open the box you have to know the cat could be alive or dead. You could get a yes OR a no. You could be happy or upset. OR, you could just not ask...
New question: Is ignorance really bliss?
By the way, the most common response I got from my mom when I asked questions was "look it up."
