Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the best way to get courage, barring a visit to the wonderful wizard of Oz?

Thanks!

p.s. The new "Ask a Question" page is nice. Much cleaner. :D

A: Dear Fredjikrang,

Think about how you would act if you had more courage in any given situation, and then act as if you have that courage. Maybe you'll find out that whatever you thought you needed more courage to do wasn't all that scary in the first place, which will give you more courage. Or maybe you'll find that the situation really was that scary but you faced it or tried to face it anyway, which will also give you more courage.

P.S. Glad you like it. The editors have been going on a bit of a cut-away-the-cruft crusade of late, so it's nice to hear that it's appreciated.
