Here’s a safe home for anyone who needs the answers to question that seem too dumb to ask.
The smartest person I’ve ever worked with was my friend Amit, now a professor of Physics. The key reason he was so smart: he was fearless about asking a “dumb” question that, of course, the rest of were also wondering about or should have been wondering about.
So freely ask anything: “Where is the switch for the lights near Blue Laser” (25 feet away, by the front entrance, totally not obvious), or “OMG I turned the wrong crank on the table saw, and now it’s tilted, how do I get it back to true?” or anything else you’ve wondered about.
Community: please reward bravely stupid questions with many likes, and polite answers.
