    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
    at wow.Wow.askQuestion(Wow.java:84)
    The code at the statement on line 84 has a variable with a null value when it is executed. Find the variable with the null value and then backtrack in the code to see why that variable does not have a valid value.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
