In my freshman physics class far too long ago, this scenario played out:
Student: Professor, I have a stupid question.
Professor: The only stupid question is the one that remains unasked.
Student: Your example, is that like shortwave radio?
Professor: That question should have remained unasked...
That student did not ask any more questions for the rest of the semester.
