I feel the need to preface my remarks with the assurance that there is no such thing as a "dumb question", except for the one that someone is afraid to ask. That said, there are those questions which reveal how much the person asking needs to learn. This can be scary when the question reveals a substantial gap between what might be needed to do something at all, and what might be necessary to do it successfully and safely.
The Walt Disney cartoon "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" illustrates what I mean, with a flawless performance by Mickey Mouse as the over-ambitious apprentice!
And by looking at the situation, and the context of the original question someone posed, we can see what we need!
