Is a question about a question about a question about a lurve party being a popularity contest a lurve party popularity contest if the question was not submitted as an official question, but rather a question within said question?

Asked by Ltryptophan (12091points) November 10th, 2011

I mean, a fluther question isn’t really born until it is asked officially. Simply giving a response to a question in the form of a question isn’t exactly addressing the topic. Right?

I predict Fluther will implode within 10 iterations.

Phew… stopped just before the implosion point.

Forget about Fluther imploding, my brain is going to implode.

As Socrates said in Plato’s Republic, I’ve always felt that it is.

I’m sorry. :-(

@Brian1946 You know, very few people read Book XI of Plato’s Republic. I’m quite impressed.

Simply giving a response to a question in the form of a question isn’t exactly addressing the topic. Right? No it isn’t, not in a direct way. It would be if someone ask, ”I am planning to fly back to Manhattan, have you heard if it was snowing?”, and I respond ”Isn’t Manhattan very cold?”. I did not really give them any helpful information. I did not tell them if it was snowing and if they had any chance of getting a flight in.

Questions that other questions call into question in turn call into question other questions.
Less verbosely: questions that other questions question in turn question other questions.
Leaving out the filler: questions questions question in turn question questions.
Down to the bone: questions questions question question questions.

@Ltryptophan, go outside once in awhile.

@lillycoyote you don’t actually believe that, you’re just being obtuse because I asked it….

lillycoyote's avatar

It seemed like a very straightforward yes or no question to me. But for you, @Ltryptophan I will reread it, carefully, and see if I have missed anything. I could be wrong.

Ya know, if someone really wanted to rile up the gang, a pet popularity test would be the way to do it. hahaha Marwyn and Lizzie are THE bomb!

The answer, of course, is 42.

@Coloma LOL. Let’s do it. Let’s set fire to this place! Marwyn and Lizzie. Best ever! A goose and her dog. (The riot police are now on alert.)

And, @Ltryptophan, I have reread your question and my answer is now: a box of Morton salt.

Why don’t sea slugs die from the salt water?

If you have to ask then the answer is… you probably shouldn’t.

I thought I already answered this question, about starting a nonsense thread?
