"Why even bother asking those questions?"

"Why even bother with Taekwondo?"

What does "why even bother" mean in these two examples?
Are these grammatically correct or just the way people talk?

    The other form is "why bother", and I think "why even bother" makes it sound "even more impatient" :D

    --Are you sure?
    --Why bother asking me if you don't believe in what I say?
    --No, I just thought maybe you were mistaken............
    --Why even bother asking me if you think I am a stupid idiot?

    :D
