I didn't say any idea or question was stupid, but that I was stupid.
Anyhow, I think I do have a pretty good eye for where there are conceptual gaps in learning content, so I'm happy to help out. Of course, it's a truer test when you are trying to learn from that material at the same time.
One key to teaching is repetition, as things often don't 'go in' the first time. I've been reading a JS book this week, and there are lots of concepts covered on each page. It would have been really helpful for the author to add little reminders with each example of what part of JS he is using, because one tends to forget. For example, he'll say something like "so I'll now use this code ..." and give an example, where it would have been helpful for him at least to say "so we'll now use an object literal (see p 120) to achieve this ..." That way, if you've forgotten some of the details about object literals, you can quickly go back and revise them, rather than search through the book trying to remember what kind of code that was.
