People Share the Weirdest Getting To Know You Questions They've Heard

*"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. *

Redditor _\kutaponk _wanted to know.... ****What are some good weird questions to ask someone to get to know them better? **_Know what NOT to say people. _**

THE TASTER IS DRY. NO?

"How much sawdust can you put into a Rice KrispyTreat before people start to notice?"

THE BIRDS!

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.

TALK TO ME....

"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.

WHAT TEMPERATURE WOULD YOU LIKE THAT COOKED?

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?

CALM DOWN! SO MANY QUESTIONS...

What is something that is important to you that you never really talk about?

Where do you want to be in an hour?

What is the last thing on your mind?

What is something I wouldn't believe about you?

What way do you have your toilet paper? Why?

If you had to pick between being the worlds best tether ball player and finding $100 on the street, what would you spend the money on?

SERIOUSLY?

"What conspiracy theories do you believe?"

SOMETHING'S ROTTEN...

I like to ask "What's your favorite smell?" you learn a lot about a person.

I'D RATHER CHINESE....

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

"if you were a pizza topping what would you be and why?"

Got some crazy responses!!!

ONCE AGAIN...

"If you could pick a day to relive over and over, Groundhog Day style, what day would it be and why?"

I HATED SOPHIE'S CHOICE!

"You come across an old lady and baby drowning in a pool. You can only save one. Who do you save and why?"

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

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
