There's not enough questions, and too many bullshit answers.

Obviously: too many questions or answers about what?
He was like a man who wanted to change all; and could not; so burned with his impotence; and had only me, an infinitely small microcosm to convert or detest. John Fowles

It seems to be the case that there are more questions than there are answers. Allow me to elaborate: https://youtu.be/jL8fREbIB_g

There are more questions than answers but that is the way it has always been

There are too many of both and not enough good ones of either.
Unless 'answer' means 'right answer' there are way to many. Just walk down the street asking people questions and you'll find a mass of useless answers to anything. And most people ask the wrong questions.

Too many questions.. good, bad, and in-between ones, and not near enough answers.. of any kind.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Wait, What! - MagsJ

Challenge:

portion AAAA Name one question that hasn't been asked before.

portion BBBB Give one answer to a famous question that hadn't been given before.

(Ive voted too many answers; answers are like Idols. Smash them! Keep our questions pure.)

I change my vote to, enough questions.. because questioning things is good, and not enough answers.. because we derive Our reality from them.

I’ll mull over your ‘puzzles’ and get back to you with an answer, Fixed.
