I run a monthly Pub Quiz and I have a website, running on Wordpress which I use for announcing upcoming quizzes, publishing results and past questions / answers. At the moment I publish the questions and answers (50 per month) as separate blog posts with a category of Question or Answer tagged with the month and year. Is there a smarter, more intuitive way of doing it? [more inside]

I want to save or print out the answers that were given to a Metafilter question that was asked yesterday. I tried highlighting and copying to word but nothing showed up except the poster's names. What do I need to do to be able to save this information for the future?

I want to pay money for expertise, but with less hassle than on guru.com. Maybe some sort of cross between Google Answers and Skype Prime. [more inside]

Where can I find a good substitute for AskMeFi? Not that I'm jumping ship, of course. I've used Yahoo Answers a few times but it seems pretty large and unwieldy, and the answers all seem to come from the same snotty 14-year-olds. The Straight Dope has a good forum, but it required a paid membership, and I'd like to find free forums first. Any and all topics. Any suggestions?

I'm looking for something like Google Answers where the answer is kept private. Basically I'm looking for an affordable internet research assistant. Specifically, I'd like to find competitors to an online business and I do not want the answers to be public. Any ideas? [more inside]

I was talking with a friend who informed me that he had read advice from an important person (as distinct from celebrity) to simply hold a pressing question in your mind and go about your life (though the answer might be years in coming, depending on its depth).
Who was this? My friend thought it might be Isaac Newton. Can anyone provide me with a URL to a source?
BTW, googling "hold a question in your mind" returns tons of hits on bibliomancy, etc., which is not
what I'm after, however mystical the advice I'm describing sounds.
