Examples

You’re at a seminar and someone keeps asking “dumb” questions. What happens then? Other people chime in to help, and even the speaker might might an inordinate amount of time and effort trying to walk them through this simple point. He even brings them up again as an example in the talk—giving them even more to work with.

Do you have an example. I bet you do.
