But how would you know if anything was failing?

I did a printStackTrace, and it said I couldn't use "executeQuery" to manipulate data. So I used executeUpdate and it worked, thanks for reminding me to do a printstacktrace, i was being dumb, thanks again!

Yes, you ninny :P

Although keep in mind that printStackTrace doesn't count as 'handling the exception' either, but it's one step better than swallowing it without comment.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
