There are no stupid questions.

Some people respond by saying that yes, there are stupid questions (what a clever response that is!). But in fact, there are no stupid questions. Let’s do a little scenario.
A boy is sitting in class while his teacher is talking about the mating habits of frogs. The boy’s mind is wandering, so he doesn’t know what is going on in the class. He asks, “Teacher, what are the mating habits of frogs?”
Was that a stupid question? Some would say yes. I say no. He was merely trying to increase his knowledge. Not paying attention, now that was stupid. But asking a question that he should have known the answer to was a good way for him to acquire the knowledge that he missed.
