What was the best answer (IYHO) provided to a question that was closed?

An awful, awful, awful, awful question that prompted an excellent answer: Is a lightsaber's hilt resizeable?

This one got me a Red Baron hat: Why did Lucas choose the word "Force"? (one of only 26 awarded - whoo!)

    And a possible contender for the "reversal" badge if I can get a few more votes :-)

I quite liked this question; "Why is Wednesday Addams named Wednesday?".

I thought I'd found the definitive answer, only to discover that there was an even stronger one waiting in the wings...

This was a great answer from Thaddeus to "What's under the crystal bridge in Asgard?".

I especially enjoyed the maps and pictures

And as much as I hate to blow my own trumpet, this answer to the question of why there aren't any animals in "the Matrix" required a considerable amount of research time and effort cataloging and collating pictures.

I thought the best question was Why didn't Qui-Gon Jinn use his Jedi mind tricks to exchange his Republic credits? It exposed what nearly amounts to a plot hole, as demonstrated by the poor answer (as noted in the comments, I think the answer was poor because of the filmmakers, not @Richard).


I really liked this question: Unknown feature on Middle Earth's map?

That asked about the island in the sea of Rhun.

I also liked my answer there:

Because I found some interesting discussions
