asking becomes a big bane to alot of us in this world. some reasons are latent, while some others, quite covert. when we don't know something, we ask. when someone asks, give them an answer. it really is simple.
what doesn't make it simple is the answers given don't help, and it's obvious that there never was any intention to help. at all.
because to them, the only way one should learn is by getting it wrong before getting it right because that's what they had to go through.
whereas, it would be so much easier to educate that person with the right information, so that they don't have to go on a merry-go-round ride before finding the light at the end of the tunnel.
and because of this, there are not many (good) teachers in this world because they are too content on making lives of other people miserable.
somehow, that's why.
