Obvious Questions – The List Grows

Thus far we’ve provided questions that could be categorized as “obvious questions that simply aren’t asked or answered.” Every time we add some, we discover another multitude of questions that certainly should qualify for this growing list.

I’m not talking about questions that will end wars, abolish poverty, cure all diseases, or eliminate the world’s problems. I’m talking about the questions that drive us crazy due to their simplicity and the questions that absolutely no one seems to be able to answer.

If you’re interested in reviewing any of the previous questions, simply click on Is It Just Me? and you’ll find them listed under articles titled “Obvious Questions.” Here are a few more.
