The post is now live. Favorite Questions and Answers from Fourth Quarter 2021


Please link to your favorite questions and answers which were either asked or answered from October 1st 2021 through December 31th 2021.

Your answers will be compiled into a blog post like previous quarterly posts.

I will be using DavRob60's queries for a baseline, but I really appreciate people voicing the ones they really enjoyed. Maybe you feel like you answered one really well, even if it didn't receive a lot of votes. Let me know about it.

I will be linking all blog posts that happened within this quarter year. Also the most controversial question of the quarter. Also a sum of all the bounties that were awarded.

Additionally if there was a meta post you feel should be spotlighted those are also acceptable.

I liked this question. It was inspired by a Q on Climbing:SE and created some nice cross-site chatter.

I spent quite a lot of time researching this one and I really want to find an answer that goes beyond "it's something weird that Villeneuve shoved in because he thought it was cool". Hopefully the director will be a little more forthcoming in future.

And who doesn't love an answer that comes straight from the horse's mouth.


Topic challenges

The fourth quarter of 2021 saw the continuation of SFF.SE's topic challenge program, with three topic challenges completed during this quarter: Gene Wolfe, Samuel R. Delany, and Elizabeth Moon.

    I'm not sure why this would be downvoted, but ... *shrug*. Jack doesn't care about downvotes when collating these answers for the blog post.

    People who get downvoted here tend to get top billing on the blog, just to spite whomever thinks that downvoting anything said here is appropriate. Commented Jan 13, 2022 at 15:20
