Tizzy: Is it possible to ask a question that you already know the answer to?
Brad: Yes. It’s called a rhetorical question.
Tizzy: Hmmm. One day I was in science class and Mrs. Pierce said, ‘Now class I don’t want any comments. If you want to ask a question you can raise your hand, but if you want to make a comment you must leave your hand down.’ Well, I wanted to make a comment about how bees waggle when they talk, so I raised my hand, and I asked her this question. ‘Do bees talk?’ and she said, ‘Yes. Bees do the waggle dance to communicate.’ So I got to make my comment, but it was really a question that I already knew the answer to.

“The earth is very smart. It gave us two legs to stand on. It gave us one arm and another arm in case we need an extra arm and two eyes and a nose, and it has gravity and food and water and oxygen.”
“Really we have everything we need on our earth, but people forget that. They think we need more of this and more of that, and they say, ‘I need more food, I need more gas, I need more toys, I need more stuff,’ but they don’t realize that the earth is very smart and they have everything they need already. It’s always just, ‘I need this, I need that. More of this more of that.”
