Whether or not you enjoyed yesterday's round of explosions, it's time for this week's installment of Ask Massively, in which we tackle the big questions.

If you've got a question you'd like to see answered in a future installment of the column, leave it in the comments below or mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions may be edited slightly for brevity and/or clarity.
