Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - PARADE PICKS -

Septem­ber 28 is Ask a Stupid Ques­tion Day, a day meant to en­cour­age cu­ri­ous stu­dents to ask any­thing, no mat­ter how “dumb” it might seem. In 2010, when a Pa­rade reader asked Mar­i­lyn vos Sa­vant if there truly is such a thing as a stupid ques­tion, her an­swer was brief and to the point: “Yes.”

Here are some of the se­ri­ously “silly” ques­tions read­ers have sub­mit­ted to Ask Mar­i­lyn over the years.

Why does a wool sweater shrink when washed? The same wool on sheep doesn’t shrink when they stand in the rain.
