The Incremental Question and Answer Thread

Not another thread where you just have to answer a bunch of questions about yourself. No, this time you get to also ask and answer a question of your own.

I’ll start by asking, and answering one question. The second person has to answer that question, plus add a new question, and answer it. The third person has to answer the first two questions, plus add a third question, and answer it.

Etc.

If there are simultaneous responses, the next person gets to choose which one to respond to, and the unchosen question may be repeated by someone else.
