GeneralSome of Today's Hot Network Questions From SO PinPopular

The SO "Hot Network Questions" always have me chuckling. Here's a few of today's burning issues:

How would a command structure and strategy for a galactic war be organized?

Badly, I would have thought.

How can I reliably catch fish without drowning?

If this is a recurring issue, stick to getting your fish from the market.

I've just been bitten by a rattlesnake; how, exactly, do I "keep calm"?

Pretend that the snake is a nice, fluffy kitten.

In Star Trek, why do Federation / Starfleet ships always seem to delay returning fire until it's almost too late?

Because it would be a bit of a dull show if they didn't.

Why are haiku usually of 17 syllables?

So you can tell they're not sonnets or limericks.
Slogans aren't solutions.
