Reader Question Box is a series where we answer questions that show up in our website traffic monitoring statistics as Google search terms that led people to us. Copious oddities are to be found in the search term logs, and some worthwhile questions. (In case you missed our previous editions: #1, #2, and #3.)
Question: “is it harder to be an lawyer or architect”
Answer: I’m going to throw this one to the audience. Please note that our audience consists almost entirely of lawyers (see posts here and here), and interpret the result accordingly.
Question: “byu chemistry tutors”
Answer: True story: I met my husband when the Institute director recommended him to me as a calculus tutor. Good luck, dear reader!
Question: “how often does cynthia l look at traffic statistics”
Answer: Haha, very funny.
Question: “when you’re frustrated with motherhood”
Answer: Mostly each morning at 8:15, when we have to be out the door or they’ll be late for school. Thanks for asking.
Question: “what kung fu panda character is thomas s. monson most like?”
Answer: Dear reader, This is truly a pressing issue for our time, and I’m glad you brought it to the fore. The turtle, Master Oogway, is in fact Thomas S. Monson.
Question: “top mormon christmas party themes”
Answer: Does a Christmas party really need a theme? Isn’t ‘Christmas’ the theme?
Question: “mormon friend not going to school on fridays in september”
Answer: Nope, there is no religion-related excuse for that. Your friend is probably just going boating or backpacking or something. Actually, there is a semi-religion-related reason for this–your friend has to be at church every Sunday, and so if he or she wants a 2-day weekend for said outdoor activities, it has to start on Friday.
Answer: I thought this was a typo or something, but, turns out, it is a word, and BCC is your source for information on Sopho-Spagyric!
Question: “content not suitable for children”
Answer: I resent that BCC, out of the whole internet, is considered a good destination for this search. (Update: Kris W. actually has a great post about this topic)
Question: “what do you tell a faithful tithe payer who has lost employment”
Answer: I’m sorry. You’re not alone–both in terms of others like you who are suffering, and that we will be here to help you. Good luck.
Question: “is stapley the one both mighty and strong”
Answer: Indeed he is.
Question: “is it adultery if your spouse says its okay”
