because "i don't know" is an answer even if it is not the answer you are looking for..
Agreed, as much as I don't like that answer it is an answer.
if i don't know then i usually don't answer it , if its uncomprehendable then i answer like five or seven just for the heck of it
Cause I am a cruel cruel man
because I'm either bored or I try to come up with some witty answer that will make life slightly more interesting....
Why would you ask for an ANSWER from people who don't know?
how would you know -if they haven't gone through something similar or far worse?
(just saying... no disrespect intended)
