The meaning of the Infamous Question: Why would you want to do that?

March 29, 2015

When somebody asks you, “Why would you want to do that? What it really means is this: “You’ve asked me how to do something that is either impossible using the tools that I favor or completely outside my experience, but I don’t want to lose face by admitting it. So…how ‘bout those Blackhawks?”

The answer to the Infamous Question is always the same, snap back as quickly as possible, “Because I want to know how it works.”
