I’m a shy and socially awkward person. Hate parties. The noise, the people talking for hours on end about absolutely nothing and stating all sorts of uninformed opinions. It’s like Twitter, but louder. But maybe if I joined in the conversation more I’d have a better time. Fortunately, web apps are here to help and there are several websites that provide questions you can use as conversation starters. Indeed, these ones are all from ConversationStarters.com. So let’s see if they’re any good:
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Well, that was a short conversation. I suppose I’ll try some more…
What is your biggest fear?
The sky falling on my head.
How many email addresses do you have?
Er… five I think. A
couple, like my old yahoo address, I rarely ever check on. Last time I did my profile had been changed
to a girl from California named Sunny who likes surfing, apparently. It’s who I’ve always felt I am inside.
Have you ever been in any YouTube videos?
No. And surely this
would only be a conversation starter if you’d just met someone who you thought
you recognised but couldn’t quite recall where.
What’s the best thing about your gender?
What movies have you re-watched the most number of times?
I don’t rewatch things as much as I used to. When I was a kid I would rewatch films over
and over, sometimes several times in the same day. I can’t recall which one I rewatched the most…
might have been Superman II or Back to the Future.
If you could choose to have any useless super power, what
would you pick?
Well, you would never choose any useless power, would you? Like the ability to read the minds of pets…
although that could be useful in some circumstances, like if someone’s cat was
the only witness to a crime. Most of
time though they’d just be thinking about food and sex. How about spoon bending? The amazing ability to do something you can
do far more quickly and easily with just your hands…
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life,
what would it be?
If you only ate one thing the rest of your life would be
quite short… so, might as well make it something nice, like Mars Ice Cream
Okay that’s enough for now.
