there are no stupid questions , just stupid answers like....to be coy is to pretend not to know something when it's obvious I'm up on it, not in a mean or malicious way. it can be playfull but it serves a purpose, maybe I broke you off sum before and you didn't thank me or give me props so now I'm like "hmmm idk ...that's a tough one ...hmmm you should google it" .
