Okay so I think the easiest way for us to do this is for everyone to copy and paste the questions onto this link that were labeled nice or whatever by Professor Weiner. Then from there I will look at the rest of the questions and add ones to it. Just make sure that one of your good questions is not a repeat of the ones already on here. I guess this will be the topic thread and then just hit reply to post like we do for MC questions. I posted 15 of mine to get us started so just post some of your best ones and then we will go from there.
