WHY is the sky blue? 
         do we yawn?
         do you want to work for us?
         do we dream?
         am I always tired?
WHEN will I die?
          feel my baby move?
          interest rates rise?
          see you again?
HOW do I know if he likes me?
                i'm pregnant?
                i'm in love?
                he loves me?
                my cat is pregnant?

Is your question listed above? Has google answered your question? What is your question? Would you like to share your question/s in the next issue of Volta, in print and online?
