SC Question Time

"Question Time. Click above to answer today's question."
Well it's been 9 days and it's still the same question. I thought that every day there would be a new question.
A few weeks ago I was listening to a talk show on satellite radio, about the art of questioning; A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger. Children, especially 4 year old girls, had the most questions per day. Then once the children start school, the questioning drops dramatically. Because answers are taught to be more important than questions.
I sometimes give tours of our water treatment plant as part of our job. I have schoolkids and adults in small groups. Once I had a group of boy scouts, probably aged 7 to 9. They were shy at first, but once I was answering questions in a way that they could understand, they flooded me with questions. Even the scout leaders threw in some questions.
I like a challenging question, a question that makes me think. Sometimes a question that requires doing some research. After all, if anyone knows everything, what's left, right?
My question of this day would be: Do you have a beautiful question?

    Hi David, good point! I’m a bit behind with the ‘Question Time’ project. I’m trying to get an article posted to go along with the recent blog post before moving on to the next question.

    I think maybe I should change the frequency to monthly, that way it’ll give me enough time to write up the content and give everyone else enough time to comment.

    Thanks for the feedback

    David, I cannot think go a beautiful question, but I do know that I would rather have a question than a wrong answer so I don’t jump on the bandwagon with answers that are just not well founded.
