This is a post I myself need a lot of the times when I have to have free conversation types of classes with my students who insist on talking but don’t want to talk. A lot of the times I was looking to make it fun, ask a lot of things and then I just gave up because I saw they weren’t having a good time in our class. 
Anyone could use some of these interesting questions to strike up a conversation with a stranger on the streets that you really really like. It gives great conversation topics so you will present yourself like an out-of-the-box kind of person, and you can also find out a lot of weird shit if you bump into the right person.
Let’s dig in into our questions.
