I think most people would agree that the 1938 Vienna phone book question was the best AskMe thread all year. What were some other great threads in the blue or the green of '05?

This thread was pretty damn funny.

I will always be grateful to y2karl for telling me about this, and for some reason it still kills me that someone did a post about the narwhal's tusk.

The Vienna phonebook one was definitely the best ask mefi post of the year.

To me, nothing is more noble when people help each other. It gives me hope that we're just not just big masses of self serving creatures.

Justonegirl needed help making the decision on visiting her dying grandmother...and then goes.

I only hope to be that good of a person one day.

I must've missed the MeTaMemo that said that everything here didn't suck anymore. ;-)

No, the memo sucks too, that's probably why you didn't get it.

We're only hours into '06, but I suspect that (the wording of) this AskMe question will have few rivals in the Raised Eyebrows department.

I asked the AskMe Question of the Year! What do I win?

Other than, you know, an utterly unexpected chance to reconnect with a part of my family history that I thought was lost forever.
