"Hot network questions"

Trying to answer the question, "Where did they move that command?" in the latest update of some piece-of-shit software, I ended up on Stack Overflow. These helpful suggestions were in the sidebar:

Hot Network Questions:

  • Subtract value from list
  • Best practice for the notation of conditions in cases: 'if' vs 'for' vs ','
  • Why do we use closed-loop feedback in buck converters?
  • How to print the inputted pattern which don't have matching lines?
  • Which atom is a Neutron star made of?
  • AWS Sentinel 2 incorrect cloudy pixel percentage
  • Can a character survive a fall from 2 miles up?
  • How do I motivate that an interstellar spaceship still requires risky spacewalks?
  • CSS or Javascript to hide div that contains specific text
  • How to communicate to my co-workers that they don't have to say "bless you" when I sneeze?
  • Does providing more heat to a pan of boiling water actually make it hotter?
  • How to survive a timeshare promotional trip?
  • How can I tell if a dataframe is of mixed type?
  • Is this graph a planar graph or not?
  • Why does the Conjoined Alliance of Space Travellers keep producing red uniforms?

Valid questions all, I am sure.
