QUAERITUR.

FINAL UPDATE: The “review” process has apparently been completed, and the original address is now active again.

WHY DO PEOPLE fill the Web with useless little sites that contribute nothing to the education of the masses? This is a useless and senseless question, since there is no reasonable answer to it, and even if it could be answered, nothing further could be done. Now, at last, comes a useless little site to honor the useless and senseless questions that have no reasonable answers:

QUAERITUR

—which is Latin for “it is asked,” a word much beloved of lawyers, since, by obviating the necessity of specifying who is asking, it avoids the perils of assigning responsibility. The site’s sole purpose is to entertain you, and its appearance at this moment has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Dr. Boli was experimenting with a new publishing program.

(If you should find the site “under review,” check back again in an hour or two. Our squeamish host naturally assumes the worst when such an inconsequential and useless site actually begins to generate traffic.)

  1. Dear Dr Boli,

    I cannot help but enquire what is IT? Are you talking to lizards? Perhaps you are asking the deep primeval area of the brain where the amygdala flips and flops like a fish out of water.

    Rise up Dr Boli, find your two legs, jump in the billy cart, aim your mop and slay these dragoons masquerading as questions…for only then will your writing flow ;P

  2. How does one convert internet time to real time? The message,
    “Since we check over 100 websites per day, it can take about 2-4 hours to complete,” has remained in place for over twelve hours now, suggesting that time passes at least three times more slowly online. Is this so?

    • Perhaps the reviewers believe that due diligence on their part will involve answering all the unanswerable questions on the site. If so, this one review could turn into a lifetime career for them. Dr. Boli wishes them the best of luck.

  3. Every time I go to the market, I see a sign: “Caution Automatic Door”

    I’ve cautioned these doors for many months now – but my warnings are ignored. Is there some special danger these doors face?
