I particularly enjoyed Laurel’s (deeply unexpected) answer to this question about an obscure superhero figurine.

Weird blue and purple humanoid superhero keychain with “Z” chest emblem, X-eyes, and trident head

I thought my answer to this Truman Show question was pretty nice. It also gave me an excuse to go through the entire film frame-by-frame.

When does The Truman Show take place?

This question/answer set proved amusing. Ryan Veeder performed some very nice statistical analysis and cryptography to come up with an answer, then found his answer proven by simply replacing the Gobbledygook font> with the appropriate letters 🙂

What language is Raven using for her attack in the new 52?
