The accumulation of knowledge has long been the most noble of all humankind's pursuits. The best among us want to know. It is not simply enough to accept things as they are, or speculate on what might be without following through with verification or scrutiny. There is an innate need within us to learn more, to unravel every puzzle, to unlock every door. When we evade knowledge we stagnate and falter as a species, but when we thirst for it we rise to new heights. And from those heights, we look back at how far we've come, knowing that once we were as animals, and now we are wise and true. Then, we wipe the sweat from our furled and learned brows, turn away from the past, and endeavor to climb higher to new pinnacles of understanding.
That pursuit of knowledge continues even to this day on the virtual frontiers of the Internet. One of the latest crazes sweeping the Internet is that of question and answer sites. Something Awful has long hosted its own forum for questions, which quickly became an invaluable resource for inept nerds looking for tips on how to psychologically manipulate women into sexual relationships. Larger sites like Yahoo also have question and answer sections, inviting users to ask away and encouraging others to provide answers, whether qualified or not. Since this is one of the biggest new features on the Internet and a testament to humankind's bondless curiosity, I thought I would take a few moments and round up some of the most popular questions posed by you, the Citizens of the Digital Kingdom.
