Probably for the same reason why you’re asking it, it’s a Q&A site after all…sung to the tune of small world purely to annoy.

Unbroken's avatar

Because it is my time and I choose how to spend it.

Why I like answering questions. Because it can be helpful fun interactive challenging. I have to support my answers and am sometimes take things for granted that I have not asked myself. Because it gives me something to think about, because I learn.

I’m waiting for my coffee maker to finish and this was a pretty good waste of 14 seconds.

It amuses me.

ucme's avatar

Amuse, what…like a fucking clown?

dxs's avatar

Cause I have nothing better to do. And clearly neither do you.

My time just ain’t that “precious”.

After finishing this coffee, I will stare out the window and contemplate the wisdom of having another coffee, or staring out the window for a while longer, then having another coffee….

Damn, @rebbel, you beat me to it!

LuckyGuy's avatar

Because I am avoiding another task I should be doing.

Because I don’t have to work until 1 and I’m too lazy to do anything else.

Because I am wondering why anybody would use the word ‘expound’ unless they are writing a treatise or and even then.

‘They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru, okay? They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru! They know you’re gonna be miles away before you find out you got fucked! They know you’re not gonna turn around and go back, they don’t care. So who gets fucked? Ol’ Leo Getz! Okay, sure! I don’t give a fuck! I’m not eating this tuna, okay? ”

Joe Pesci at his best! lol

ucme's avatar

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

A Pesci moment…the next generation.

I am answering this question so it looks like I am busy. I am at the Doctors office, and this creepy guy has been trying to talk to me. “What happened? What’s that for? How’d you get the scar?” Then of all things asked me if I was married. Well I know it could be crazier. Anyways, have a great night/day.

Pachy's avatar

Because I love answering the important questions that spring from serious inquiring minds like yours.

mattbrowne's avatar

My passion for lifelong learning. The only way to truly understand a subject is the capability to explain it to other people. When I was a high school student, I volunteered as a tutor for fellow students having trouble with math and physics. I often got the feeling that not only did they profit from it, but I did so myself. Significantly. I got a much deeper understanding of the more difficult stuff, because I was forced to explain it in different ways.

Second reason: I love English.

Third reason: Being part of a (global) community.

woodcutter's avatar

You just wanted to use the word “expound” Use it 2 more times in the same day and it will have a tendency to be a part of your vocabulary.

YARNLADY's avatar

I love answering questions and I have more time than I know what to do with.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’m paying attention @talljasperman. Whut u want?

talljasperman's avatar

@Dutchess_III Friends in real life. Or at least Facebook. And the ability to have an adventure again.
