no such thing as a stupid question?

I always tell anyone unlucky enough to have me train/tutor/mentor them, "The only really stupid question is the one you don't know the answer to but don't ask because someone said "everybody knows that!" - you don't know so there is a good possibility other people don't know either.

Asking questions is never stupid if you do not know or are not sure - not asking them can be very stupid indeed.
