International Ask a Question Day

International Ask a Question Day falls on the birthday of Albert Einstein born on this day in 1879. One of his famous quotes was "The important thing is not to stop questioning."
So, if you've been curious about something, unclear about something, or just want more information ask a question today. The best way to learn is by asking questions. No question is a stupid question.

Remember that questioning is the way we learn new things. We have all been around the three-year-old who constantly asks “why?” They are not trying to frustrate anyone they are merely trying to learn more about their environment and the actions of the people around them.
