    Very, very good.

  2. CAB says:

    You overlooked WoW.
    Is it okay to drink decaf coffee?
    Is it okay to drink Coke, Pepsi, etc.?
    What is “health in the navel”?

    • yaanufs says:

      But we’d end up with 101, or 1001 questions if we put all of the crazy into simple question form.

      • CAB says:

        You have a point, but WoW is a significant and visible portion of the crazy, whereas some of Runtu’s questions are fairly obscure.

      • runtu says:

        I put the obscure stuff in because I thought people might enjoy learning a few things. But yeah, the WoW is a glaring omission.

      • runtu says:

        I added a bonus question just for you. 🙂

  3. Troy says:

    Wow. Turnabout in its awesomeness.

  4. Doug Taylor says:

    Fantastic. Now… how to put these in the reply box on Trimble’s page….

  5. swearingelder says:

    Might I suggest this as a link for Item #51: https://youtu.be/GVJgmp2Tc2s

    😉

  6. cynth says:

    So on point, nice work! Lately I have been reading some missionary blogs and I just shake my head at how they “teach” the gospel; this list should be what every investigator sees, talk about full disclosure!!
    (well, reasonably full, I agree with yaanufs that the total crazy might actually require an exponentially longer list.)

  7. Alex says:

    I was waiting for someone to do something like this. Well done! The links were a nice touch.

  8. Steve55 says:

    I like:
    Why is the temperature at which I drink my caffeine important to God?
