Why do you want to know exactly?

TheProfoundPorcupine's avatar

For intricate reasons and due to the fact my nose is bothering me about it.

Shippy's avatar

@TheProfoundPorcupine you are just being nosy you mean? else if not you could blow it?

@TheProfoundPorcupine which part?, so confused over a simple question

TheProfoundPorcupine's avatar

@Shippy At both parts to be honest with you.

If you’re flying a canoe through a sea of wheat and the wheel falls off, how many pancakes does it take to build a doghouse?

Shippy's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr 16 and ⅓ anyone knows that

TheProfoundPorcupine's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr Depends on the size of the dog that has to go into the doghouse I would imagine.

TheProfoundPorcupine's avatar

@Shippy You clearly have superior knowledge on that subject so I would recommend your answer over mine.

Just one if you roll your dog up in it.

The last time I asked a pointless question was when I asked a pencil salesman why the pencils he sold me kept breaking their points.

Shippy's avatar

haha ^^

You’ve heard the phrase, “there are no stupid questions?”

Well, the corollary is that there are no pointless questions.

Never in the history of humanity has there been asked a pointless question.

Do you understand?

Gabby101's avatar

I’m not sure I know what a pointless question is. Sometimes I ask questions just to seem interested but in reality I really couldn’t give a muck. Is that pointless?

How quickly can I have business cards printed up that name me a “Pencil Salesman”?

TheProfoundPorcupine's avatar

@glacial Depends on how quickly you can draw the design for the card and clearly if the point keeps breaking it could take a while to get to the printing stage.

wundayatta's avatar

It should have a graphic of a pencil with a broken point lying next to it.

@Gabby101 Your question may be pointless to you, but it will almost surely have a point to at least one other person, if not more. When you ask questions “just to seem interested,” you are helping other people by pushing the conversation onward, even if you don’t actually care. It is a kind of selfless thing to do, if done well. It shows that you understand that the sun does not revolve around the earth.

Shippy's avatar

I have to say though I never ask pointless questions loll

rojo's avatar

What time is it?

Sunny2's avatar

Most recent was an hour ago when I asked my SO if he wanted dessert after lunch.

janbb's avatar

I usually am able to censor myself before asking.

rojo's avatar

@Sunny2 Is that a double entendre?

Sunny2's avatar

^^ Oh my. Funny. I wish it was.

I’d like to know what a baby pillow would be called. Assuming that pillows could procreate and have babies. Or like if you found a really little pillow, and thought it looked like a baby pillow. What would it be called? A pillowing? Pillowee? A peewo? Also if pillows could have babies, would they be mammals? Or would they lay eggs? And would the eggs just be like the plastic bag that most pillows come in when you buy them?
