Can I Ask You a Question?

Can I ask you a question? is the worst way to ask somebody if you can ask them a question. For starters, you’re already asking a question by asking if you can ask a question, thereby defeating the whole point of asking if you can ask a question. What if they don’t want you to ask a question and you already asked them? You should really be asking if you can ask two questions, and if they give approval, then you can ask your follow-up question, which is your actual question. With me so far? Any questions? No? Good. My point is this: don’t ask if you can ask a question. Just ask your question or ask if you ask two questions, and then ask your question. It’s not that hard.

Vsauce

Vsauce is a YouTube channel that produces short and entertaining educational videos on a variety of topics. There’s a sense of community on Vsauce. The host and creator, Michael Stevens, opens each video with his traditional greeting, “Hey Vsauce, Michael here…” before he dives into whichever question inspired the video. Most of the videos are in direct response to a subscriber’s question, and people ask some pretty awesome questions like “What if the Sun disappeared?” and “Why do we play games?” Vsauce is one of those channels that you can’t escape from. You’ll watch a video that somebody shared on Facebook, and then get linked to another interesting one, and then another topic will grab your attention, and before you realize that it’s 3:00 in the morning and you have to go to bed. But you don’t want to, so you watch one more video. It’s addicting. Trust me. I watched three Vsauce videos while writing this. So check them out, it’s a great way to kill time and expand your mind.
