This definitely isn't my "one question" but seeing this made me wonder, do your parents also call you "Dan" or like most parents call their kids by their "real" name they call you Daniel?
Dan is his name but not what I  call him.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I just read the roundup (great stuff, as usual!), and I see that Dan learned in yeshiva LA. I thought he learned in Brazil and in 770 - how many yeshivos did he learn in?

That would be the "one question" you would ask? It's virtually public information.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Went away from home at 13 years old to high school in Achei Temimim PIT (3 years)
At 16 I went to Ohr Elchonon Chabad LA (2 years)
At 18 I went to Chovivei Torah in Crown Heights (1 year). Didn't do the more popular Oholei Torah because tuition was 4x the price and they wouldn't send me on Shlichus after 1 year because I was too young.
At 19 I went on bochur shlichus and got tested on melicha in Sao Paulo by Rav Yosef Feigelstock and Rav Shamai Ende
At 20 I went back to Ohr Elchonon and got tested on basar b'chalav, taaruvos, and shabbos and got smicha from Rav Dovid Schochet and got a BA in Liberal Arts from the Rosh, Rav Ezra Schochet.
At 21 I went to Yeshivas Baldwin Wallace ;) in CLE and got an MBA, 3.978 GPA with a single A- from a professor who wanted to mess with me for being a perfectionist and to have a better story to tell ;D

Wow! Really interesting.

Btw, Consumer Reports just called. They want you to write the page on Yeshivos...  ;)

At least in the Chabad system, at 4 yeshivas, I'm below average in the number of yeshivas attended between mesivta, zal, bochur shlichus, and smicha. 5 would be typical and 6 not unheard of.

Why do you follow shaulyaakov on DDF? What does it take to deserve to be followed? :)
