I have read only writes in SQLServer '08;
and was wondering if there wasn't a better way to do this:
WITH DUMB_TABLE(QUESTION, ANSWER)
AS
(

SELECT 1,2

UNION

SELECT 3,4

UNION

SELECT 5,6
)

SELECT * FROM DUMB_TABLE

There's no need to use a CTE for that.  You get the same result by just using your inner select statement like this.
