There are a lot of great options, but I have to vote for How can a contract run itself at a later time?. For one, I think it is a short question that most Ethereum newbies would understand and be curious about. Moreover, while the top answer is long, it is an excellent response. Additionally, you can easily find answers to a lot of the other questions by simply reading the Ethereum Yellow paper or solidity docs. In contrast, as far as I know, the question I propose is not answered in any official documentation.
