Jackasks: People who ask questions that they already know the answer to.
We don’t know why they do it, and we might even be the ones who are doing it, but the world seems to be populated by multitudes of jackasks. Maybe they are wanting to clarify a fact. Maybe they are just smug, annoying pests that love getting the best of people whom the regard as being more knowledgeable than they are. Jackasks have been around since we could speak. For all we know, they might have been around long before humans existed. If the theories of highly intelligent dinosaurs is proven, then there most likely were jackasks as far back as the Mesozoic Era, or before even that.
Jackasks are always going to be around, so we’d best just get used to them. We could try to be clever enough to trip them up in their own game, and that might make them cool their jets for awhile. It could, but it most likely won’t. No matter what subject you put out there, from politics to sports to science, you will find a jackask in every situation. Don’t be the jackask that everyone is trying to avoid.
I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
