Mitch Hedberg Quotes
The Questions Game
How Smart Are You?
If you have ever felt the need to have a deep philosophical conversation with someone, but didn't know how to get it started, here is the answer. Sometimes called the questions game, this is a list of random thought-provoking questions that I composed with the help of various friends. Try asking someone you have always wanted to get to know some of these questions and see what you learn about that person and yourself!
