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

1. What is the craziest, most
outrageous thing you want to achieve?
These days, sleeping 6-7 hours at night is about the most outrageous thing I
want to achieve...hasn't happened in a very long time.

As someone who made a difference in the world....not a big difference, but a
