Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!
Classical: If you were an Olympian god, what

Byzantine: Do you prefer gold or silver accessories?
Medieval: Are you religious?
Gothic: What is your favorite historic building?
This Church of the Transfiguration on Kizhi Island in Russia, which we saw in 2010. It was closed for repairs when we were there (may still be for all I know), but I loved the look -- it has the most onion domes in Russia (22). It was completed in 1714 during the reign of Peter the Great and supposedly built by one man, using no nails (wooden nails were not "invented" until later), who is said to have tossed his axe into the lake when it was finished, saying that there was never a church like this and never would be again. Whether the story is apocryphal or not, I think it's fairly safe to say the statement was true!

It's a secret between the two of them. I don't pry.
Pop Art: Do you enjoy pop culture?
Contemporary: What did you do today?
