    witchway

    I agree with you dunc. Only to be followed by the only answer that makes sense, "Because".

    Pretty much...so mcm...uh...how are you? :)

    Why is the sky blue?Is one of the annoying questions on akaQA.I agree with Ducky "How are you"would be the most commen question ever asked.


     

    "why?" is a Q all children throughot whole world in a certain early period of their life  ask thousand times a day.

    Colleen, Shadesbreath world does not include children nor Chinese, Indians of all ages just to list few categories...
    Most important: I am not trying to change anyone's opinion :-)

    "What is that?" ... with the cute little pointing finger. 100 times a day!
    It may not be documented but by the time a child hits 18 it has to be asked at least One Million times! :D

    Really? OK, you can agree to disagree with the people who did the research. "Why" is not really an important question coming from kids. It's just an easy word to use to get attention.

    Usually it is "What's your name" but on here, it's what time is it?..................

    Or, right now...how are the road conditions?
    jhharlan

    I'm used to ignoring those......

    What's that?


    I have a two year old... there are a lot of two year olds out there..... :)

    valR

    what's for dinner?
    FISH-O

    Oh, there is a good one. I hear that every day when my husband phones me on his way home from work!

    Will the world end in 2012?

    doolittle

    We get alot of those!

    Who are you . The wife"s been asking me the same Question just to wind me up.

    How doo you doo?

    doolittle

    I'm here...Doo do fine!
    itsmee

    Do fine, Dood.
    caddam

    I have never ever been able to understand why people say 'how do you do'.
    Do WHAT? Or who cares. doing fine, seems to be the standard answer, but why. I DON'T KNOW! The sister to that one is 'how are you'. Compared to WHAT! How I was yesterday? I try to not reply 'fine and how are you' especially to someone who needs a lot of attention.

    Rempnds me of the old Bob Hope sketch.
    Bob & girl sitting on a park bench.
    Bob:- "Some park"
    Girl,"Yep,some park.
    Bob,"Some bench".
    Girl,"Yep,some bench."
    Bob,"Some do"
    Girl,"Well I don't!"

    What's the meaning of life?


     #2 would be, is there a God?

    valR

    These are two very important, serious questions but popular? I don't think so...

    Well your opinion is yours to have. They are the most asked which in my opinion makes them popular.
    FISH-O

    Val... these are very popular question along with the chicken and the egg and why is the sky blue... Way up there questions.
    valR

    I do respect your opinions, really.
    My opinon though is that these two questions unfortunately are not popular (asked oten enough).
    If you disagree, I'll agree to disagree.
    Colleen

    Watta ya know?

    Dollybird

    Tommyh, really like your Bob Hope sketch. Well I dont either. what ever. lol

    " How are  you ? "  ......even if they don't mean it.

    valR

    I'm good, how are you?
    FISH-O

    If I ask, I do mean it! :)

    Who is that  mysterious     matheneyg  ? on  AkaQA ????  LOL

    I think that why and what are bothb asn common.

    hmm..... how are you? Everybody says that when they meet.

    Will she?

    valR

    or will she not?

    Will you marry me.

    Really?

    valR

    Why? May I? :)

    Where is the mens/ladies room ?

    "Where's the remote control???"

    FISH-O

    I know exactly where the remote controls are they just scare the heck out of me... one of then has a keyboard just like the computer!!! Augh!!!
    I have decided never to use them again.
    lindilou

    They cause mayhem when they do that yearly migration!!!LOL!
    valR

    where are my glasses, where are my car keys, where did I park my car.......

    Are we there yet?

    All animals ask the same question- Why do humans smell so bad???

    valR

    Why? :-)
    doolittle

    Why do we smell bad? or why do they ask?
    lindilou

    Their second question is why do humans look so silly!!!...those funky nekkid apes !!

    To Be or Not to Be?...That is THE question.   :)

    No 1: " Are you a virgin?"  No 2: "Would you like to be an ex-virgin?" (Assuming the answer to No. 1 is "yes.")

    I also think that "why" is the most popular question in the world.
    At least when it comes to children :)

    ROMOS

    Better not mention it to Colleen...lol

    " How much ? "

    " Do you wanna have sex ? "

    sup?  What's up?

    Certainly, simply it has to be "What is the meaning of life?"  and secondly it would be  "What is the meaning of my life?".
