    @DarkMukke think Jeopardy. That was an answer not a question.

    @arcadesdude well since I answered your question, yours is not a question without an answer.

    @amahlaka not technically, the question is What's 6*9?

    @DarkMukke wasn't a question to begin with there was no answer implied. That what rhetorical is, an answer, it's own answer in the guise of a question but there is no real question to find.

    Paradox, I know but the recursive nature resolves itself without needing an answer -- as it is it's own manifestation of such.

    @arcadesdude well i know what rhetorical means .., but by answering your question, it is no longer one because :
    - i answered it
    - the answer says its not a rhetorical question

    @DarkMukke it is only an answer if there is a question to begin with. As there was no question (just the appearance of one) there can be no answer. Do not be fooled by appearances. Rhetorical questions are not actually questions. Rhetorical is like the '!'
    If ? is a question !? is not a question.
    Qualifiers matter such as the colon in "What is:" this means a statement (rhetorical question) rather than a real question. Semantics yes but important to communicate the original intention of my original response. Really it's just a joke, just like OPs "question" :)
