Give me deep, random, funny, stupid, and personal questions to ask, Ask MetaFilter,


Ask MetaFilter

So I want to gather as many questions as possible that could lead to funny, deep, insightful or thought provoking conversations. However I think it would be best if my partner and I don’t know the questions. So I’m trying to find lists that I can just copy and paste then cut up without having to look at them. I’ve been looking on Google and have found some lists. However I thought that the good people of MetaFilter would have some good questions as well. So my question is what are good questions to ask?

The sort of questions I’m after are like these.

Would you kill an innocent person if you thought it might mean saving a dozen other people?

What’s the most money you’ve ever given away?

What’s the biggest personal change you’ve ever made?

What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done?

What do you think would be one of the best steps we could take toward ending poverty around the world?

What is Satan’s last name?

Why is it that on a phone or calculator the number five has a little dot on it?

Can crop circles be square?

If ghosts can walk through walls and glide down stairs, why don’t they fall through the floor?
