Please link to your favorite questions and answers which were either asked or answered from January 1st 2016 through March 31 2016 (They don't have to be your questions and answers.).

La la la la la la, la la la la la. Will the Smurf theme be enough to trick StackExchange? We'll have to wait and see.

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.

This has now gone live. http://scifi.blogoverflow.com/2016/04/highlights-from-2016-1st-quarter/

Best questions

Why are storm troopers legs asymmetrical? (Jonathan.'s question)

What is the "About the Author" blurb in Shadows of the Empire supposed to say? (Wad Cheber's question)

Best answers

What's the story behind the Spock helmet? (Jason Baker's answer)

What other Harry Potter related writings has Rowling written? (ibid's answer) - a great list of references.

Questions of unusual topics

Pears in Doctor Who (Rand al'Thor's question)

Which 'finger' was BB-8 sticking up? (Keen's question)
