Why do we rabbit on and on about pollution but say and do nothing about ‘noise pollution’. If we can send people into space and bring them back again, how come we can’t manage to have silent lawn mowers and leaf blowers and electric drills and so on and so on ?

Because not only does all the noise drive me mad (I am currently living across the road from a new building site) but constant, irritating noise can affect peoples health. e.g. leaf blowers make we want to commit murder and that would be very unhealthy for at least two of us!

Asked by:

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.

Ask your questions and vote on others, then join us on 27 – 28 November for a feast of frequently unanswered questions – as we present your most controversial, revealing, funny and insightful ideas to a 25-strong Brains Trust of the world’s most inquisitive thinkers.

So pose your burning questions. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.
