One of the longer-running features here is the Occasionally Asked Questions file, which attempts to answer reasonable queries from the readership, generally without regard to minor points like whether anyone actually asked them or not. (In 2014, I threw in a gratuitous bit of fakery: "If you had a dog, what would you name it?" I suppose you'd have to have lived here for a generation or two to comprehend the answer: "Robert S. Cur.")
What all those questions had in common, of course, was some connection to reality: even if no one literally asked a question, it would not have been too unreasonable a question to ask. If I think of any more of those, I'll post them there. For right now, I'm fielding questions nobody had the temerity to ask. In fact, I'm not even posting the questions: only the answers. If you were planning to ask me something, you might want to see if a plausible answer is already here.
Perhaps we will pick this up again in #2000, which, at the current rate, will be some time in December 2027.
