This is a list of some of the stupidest science-related questions to ask science fanatics, or people in general

The Top Ten

1 My girlfriend says she needs time and distance. Is she calculating velocity?

Asking that question makes it clear that you might not have great chemistry.

No; she has no direction, so she's just trying to get up to speed. - PetSounds

LOL. No, she just isn't into you. - Metal_Treasure

No you just got dumped - Myuuu

2 How come when I get hit by something going 100 mph I die but when I get hit by something going 299 792 458 m/s I live?

Haven't you heard of a difference between matter and energy? - SpectralOwl

The simple answer is momentum. - PositronWildhawk

One theory is that you get hit by light so fast that your organs do not have the time to properly react and get smushed. - styLIShT

3 Why is mercury a liquid at room temperature, but a solid when so close to the sun?

I think he lives on mercury... - mattstat716

Wow, this is truly dumb lmao

4 If your parents are infertile, can they pass that trait on to you?

And two sperm and eggs mixed together ends up with this result. - Bolshoy_Brat

Dang it, I wasn't born, my traits are too infertile! - SpectralOwl

My smoking pipe exploded because of this tainted question *Frustated sigh*- Kevinsidis

5 Maybe the reason aliens haven't visited our solar system yet is because we only have 1 star? They'd probably only look for systems that received at least a 4 out of 5 stars rating, right?

If the Helliconia trilogy taught us anything, it's that more than one Sun throws its civilisations into a cycle of chaos. - PositronWildhawk

...This man is the greatest scientific genius of our time. Give him a medal. - mattstat716

6 If we share 50% of our DNA with bananas, and 1 in 4 people descend from Genghis Khan, does that mean Genghis Khan was 200% banana?

Just asking, where did u get these numbers from

7 Why is the sun out during the day when it's light, rather than at night when it's really needed?
8 When we use ad-block software that blocks 99.99% of ads, are we not just selecting only the strongest and most resistant ads to repopulate our internets?

Is this such a dumb question, or is it the next conspiracy to come true? - PositronWildhawk

9 In most countries water boils at 100°, but in the USA it doesn't boil until 212°. What's so different about American water?

The answer is simply dumb systems put in place. - PositronWildhawk

That's so funny, LOL - Metal_Treasure

10 Is math related to science?

No. Math is obviously related to art. You have to draw lines at a 29 degree angle that slowly increments by 1 degree if you want to draw a hill and then- - mattstat716

No math is HELL I don't know about you guys who like math but I HATE it - potatogurl

The Contenders

This can be taken a second way. (insert lennyface here) - mattstat716

No, my son, it’s rock solid. - MrCoolC

12 Women are 99% more likely to die during childbirth than men. Why hasn't modern medicine addressed this issue?

Hey that's a good question. Maybe they can address how to give weights to light-headed people next.
(sarcasm) - mattstat716

13 If Dwayne Johnson is studying his family history, is it called genealogy or geology?
