Q: When knowledge is expensive!

“My name is Srikant, I am an addict.”
I hear reluctant murmurs of 'Hi Srikant' and 'Welcome Srikant' from the group.
“Srikant, I am glad you took the first step. Daily quota?” asks the facilitator.
“Fifteen hours, usually,” I respond sheepishly.
“How do you feel?” asks an elderly gentleman who I have trouble imagining as an addict.
“Um … It’s difficult. I ask myself, how can more knowledge hurt? It just felt so right. I ... crave that intimacy.” I say, feeling at home as people around me start nodding.
“That’s why they call us Quoraphiles, son. Welcome to Quora Anonymous.”

So, I totally made this one up! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ There are no documented philias that start with Q. And Quora undoubtedly, is becoming hugely addictive! It should come as no surprise then that questions like ‘How do you deal with Quora addiction?’ and ‘How bad is your Quora addiction?’ have 100+ answers on – surprise, surprise – Quora itself! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Imaginative way to make up a philia with Q. Apt one..Quora IS highly addictive.

  2. Lol good one. Now der can't be any letter which can escape from ur imagination.

    1. Hahahha, no ya! I did struggle with a few. M was a tough one to write even though I wanted to base it on the bee lady. It's tough to be able to put it down without appearing insensitive! But thanks for that vote of confidence! Hopefully this lucky streak continues :)
