Damn! Every time I think of a question for today’s Inquisition, I’m struck with the idea that we’ve already asked it here before. Jeez, have we asked every question there is to ask already? Have we emptied out the question bowl, and sopped up every last drop of Inquisition soup with a piece of bread? Have we exhausted every possible combination of words that would elicit information?
Maybe it’s just time for aÂ mind refresh, or a brain de-frag, or something. Let me see if that’llÂ energize the old inquisitor. . . .
Okay, well that didn’t help with a question. But at least my sense of dreadÂ isn’t locked up any more, and my imagination is loading quicker.
Umm . . . Well, so why don’t we just make today’s questions about questions. Feel free to comment on any interrogative statement (mundane or philosophical) that comes to mind. I’ll help you along:
What is the most intriguing question everÂ asked of you? The most profound? TheÂ silliest (don’t say this one, or I’ll punch you in the throat)? Are you immediately aware when someone asks a rhetorical question, or do you find yourself answering before you realize it? Wouldn’t it be cool if every language had an upside-down question mark at the beginning ofÂ an interrogative sentence and a regular question mark at the end of an interrogative sentence, like Spanish? Why don’t they? Are you all growing weary of the Afternoon Inquisitions? Any suggestions on how to keep the questions fresh?Â
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET.
