[rebelmouse-image 18357343 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

*"Could you repeat that?" "Pardon?" Those are just a few of the responses that are kneejerk when we're faced with the oddest questions imaginable. Sometimes we're all left in disbelief at the things that fall out of people's mouths. We all might think we're being original or interesting at the initial thought but most of the time we're just being weird. A first impression is important so don't waste it with an introductory question that will leave your audience baffled. *

My new personal favorite:"On an average day, how many pigeons do you think you could reasonably carry?" It's so far out of left field, it throws people off and gets them thinking. They also think you're weird for asking it, but it's worth it for the random answers you'll get.

"What are you proud of, but never have an excuse to talk about?" That gets people to talk about things they've done and just want to bring up, so you see what's important to them.

Would you cannibalize someone to survive on a stranded island knowing that there's a 25% chance of rescue/survival if you eat the corpse but a guaranteed death if you don't eat it?

When I was managing and interviewing people for a higher end pizza restaurant we had to ask every person

Had someone ask me this at a semi-professional event as an ice breaker haha. Much better than the usual questions.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.
