An Announcement

Good morning, afternoon, and evening to you, gentle readers. Shaun McQuaid here.

The first question was answered on September 22, 2004. It’s been 1 year and 10 months or so since this crazy adventure began, and your intelligent and awe-inspiring questions have always been there for me, running circles in my brain, causing me to wonder at my own sanity and that of the world around me.

But today marks a milestone.

It seems that I have answered every single one of your questions. None remain in the queue.

Given that this is the case, I am making an ANNOUNCEMENT.

From this point forward, Defy S. McQuaid is on Temporary Hiatus. I will be watching and waiting, seeing if and when the questions mount up. When the number of unanswered questions attains a critical mass, and I have increased my knowledge to the point where I feel I am worthy of accepting the challenge, I will retrieve that gauntlet and begin the Answering again. But for now, you must not expect a weekly answer for some time. There is a philosophical point that has been reached; the desert of questions has been filled with the seeds of answers, and must be given time to flower.

Let’s look back at some of our favorite answers over time:

Resume Paper and Bloody Murder
What, turnip?
Cadbury Cream Eggs – Makes Lady Friends Happy!
Where Does Pork Come From?
Starfleet Regulations

I would add more, but I’m too fond of my answers; they clamour for attention, wanting to be redisplayed, and I must list only the favorites above.

If you have a Favorite answer, please post it in the comments!

Thank you for your readership, your questions, and your support. Rest assured that the answers will come again…..someday in the future. I will not abandon the task forever!

    I stopped asking questions because it stopped being clear where one does that. It used to be a handy link right there, but not any more…

    So I have a question. Can we get a link to ask a question? I’ve searched the page and I can’t find anything. Help a brotha out!
