Here on SE I've only answered questions so far, so I thought it was time to ask some of my own. But where should I go to find the answers to these questions?

  1. Would a tsubo-niwa garden help with my kung-fu novel, "Big Blind"?

  2. Does the Qur'an state anything about graduate students using plastic building blocks while abroad studying encryption algorithms?

  3. Would it count as prior art if I used a Turing machine as a UHF transmitter for my cat, Gatto?

    $\begingroup$ @RespectMyAuthoritah's list is complete, but (as was guessed) you still have to make some connections. $\endgroup$

Please ask your questions in

http://area51.stackexchange.com/

To solve this question, you need to determine all the stack exchange sites, taking note of which sentence and which order they appear in. @RespectMyAuthoritah has thankfully done this for me:

  1. japanese, gardening, martial-arts, writers, poker
  2. islam, academia, legos, travel, cryptography
  3. patents, computer-science, amateur-radio, pets, italian

Now go to http://stackexchange.com/sites# and look up the positions of each stack exchange site. For each of the 3 questions, connect the five stack exchange sites in order to reveal a character for each site.

Big picture incoming

And we get A51, or Area 51.

If you interpret 5 as S, https://puzzling.stackexchange.com/?as=1 is also another answer.

    $\begingroup$ That's awesome. Kudos for not actually using ciphers and crap which just makes most of the puzzles like this obnoxious. $\endgroup$
