Why do we “Why”?

Why do we spend so long asking why? What good does it do us?

Asking why it rains can give us an interesting answer but it doesn’t stop it raining.

Asking why, as a ME/CFS sufferer, I have a greater urge to sleep than the typical person might help me understand my body more but it doesn’t help me keep awake.

Asking why the “school bully” thumped me on nose one day could give me a range of answers but it doesn’t change the fact that I was hit on the nose.

Why therefore do spend so long asking why? Does the answer to a “Why” question ever give us a solution?

Can anyone give me a useful “Why” question that would not be better expressed with what, where, when or How?
