Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Man...how cool is that? The Arfons brothers and Breedlove going at it on the salt flats. Great video. I sat there and watched the whole thing, and still wanted more. Thanks for posting for us to share!

Kinda like watching the Worlds Fastest Indian, can't see it enough, I'm on #4 and still noticing things, I figure by #100 I'll have it down pat.  Thanks again
