Odd Questions Odd People Ask/are Asked?

I am something of a stationary nut (paper, pencils, pens …) and so sometimes browse the Fountain Pen Network (FPN) bulletin board.

Quite often there are posts on FPN by people who report that they are or have copied out some literary work for practice or a gift etc. The work is often the bible (or some part thereof) or related text, which passes without comment on choice of the work. Today I was looking at FPN and noticed a post (from some days ago) from someone who has copied out Epictetus’s Enchiridion. What I find curious was that the first reply/comment contained two questions; the unremarkable “How long did it take?” follows by “Why did you choose that particular work?”.

I suppose I should not be surprised since the majority of posters are in the US and inappropriate requests for prayers and other posts which seem to implicitly assuming the reader is a  christian are relatively common.
