Please link to your favorite questions and answers which were either asked or answered from July 1st 2015 through September 30 2015.

They don't have to be your questions and answers.

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 think Hannover Fist deserves a special mention for the inventiveness and charm of his question about management policy:

And I rather liked Praxis' question which was both topical and amusing:


Not to blow my own trumpet, but I thought my own answer to Slytherincess' deceptively simple question was very good:

and the variety of quality answers to this question about science fiction is worthy of a mention:


I'm sure this doesn't really need to be said, but your answer to the Who are these DC superheroes for its sheer and ridiculous overachieving.


Here are my nominations, in no particular order:



  • Thanks, I appreciate the props! – JMFB Sep 19 '15 at 3:38

I liked Why did Agent Smith & co. pursue (pre escaped) Neo through the Matrix instead of going to his pod? most of all my questions, and I'm too jealous to nominate anything better.




  • None of mine :(. And FYI Paul's answer is incorrect, they actually use the phrase Star Trek exactly, i'll post my answer later, so you can add it) :) – JMFB Sep 19 '15 at 3:38

    I just went to post my answer was all set up and then scrolled up to see that you posted the answer already! LMFAO! Your answer was the best answer to that question and you should have been awarded a correct answer, damn. You should change your answer to be your answer instead of his. Oh well. And thanks for the props on Wolf 359. You had an awesome question and answer recently. I remember one that I was going to put a bounty on, but I can't remember them. I should really post one of these, but I'm so busy right now with this deal I'm working on... +1 on Wolf 359 answer lol – JMFB Sep 19 '15 at 16:12

Self-promotion alert

I stand by this one

In Star Trek, do the Greek gods lack nipples?

because nipples.

And because I like when I think I have an interesting question and then after some research, it ends up fascinating.

So, of course this one too, which was both fascinating and a lot of work to do. But fun.

What's the relationship among the many uses of the name "Praxis" in sci-fi? (hint: I answered in the form of a poem)


Best Answer:

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Praxis's answer to When was the Verteron Array built exactly and why wasn't it used against the Xindi when they were about to destroy earth?

I only officially joined SFF this quarter, but I've been lurking around here for a while, and this is one of the nicest, most creative answers I have seen.


I never get nominated for any of these, so I'm going to nominate a few of my own answers that I think are rather good.

First, I'd like to nominate my self answered question "Does the general public know who superheroes really are in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?". I put a lot of effort into it and I'm happy to say it was received well.

Second, I'd like to nominate my answer to the question "Why aren't the people responsible for creating Ultron arrested at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?". This leans heavily on my knowledge of what (broadly speaking) will be happening next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as some (solid and evidence based) speculation about the details of Captain America: Civil War.

And finally, I feel that my answer to the question "Are there any rules/guidelines regarding Spider-Man's appearance?" never got as much attention as it deserved - it's an interesting (and topical) question that, although potentially looking primarily opinion-based, actually had a definitive answer.

I'd also like to mention "Elvish tattoo - can it be translated into English?" as a great example of why I love this community.

    +100 for the Elvish Tattoo one. Not only did we put our knowledge to good use, but also that it involved a great deal of work from our own Jason Baker, as well as attracting a new, and rather valued member to our community. I like, literally watched this question for like an entire day to watch the events unfold. It felt good to be a part of it. – Möoz Sep 17 '15 at 22:59

    @DrRDizzle : I added your "Does the general public know...?" question to my list of nominations. So consider yourself nominated! And nice work. :-) – Praxis Sep 20 '15 at 19:46
  • I'd separate the Elvish tattoo one. I just feel like it should have a special mention of its own. In a way, we used our geek-ly talents for a good reason :) – Möoz Sep 29 '15 at 22:33
