Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on the WTIT Blog with Bud Weiser. 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. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!
Some Art Historic questions

This is the Transfiguration Cathedral on Kizhi island on Lake Ladoga, in Russia. The building was built (without nails, and using only an axe) in 1714 to honor Peter the Great, and has the most onion domes of any building in Russia. The story goes that Peter had the architect killed when the building was completed so another cathedral like it could never be built again.

Art Nouveau: When were you last at the theatre?
Surrealism: Why does the porcupine think it's a duck?
