30 Of The Most Weird And Absurd Questions Ever Asked On Quora

by Rachel

Ever since Yahoo Answers got shut down, there has been a sad hole in the lining of the internet.  There was nowhere else that you could go to ask embarrassing questions, or, even better, read about all the embarrassing questions that other people have decided to place on the internet forever.

Since then, a lot of people have been putting their humiliating questions on private Facebook groups dedicated to a sometimes relevant topic. Perhaps this is worse than Yahoo Answers, because you haven’t known true stupidity until you see the kinds of things that people openly ask with their real name attached.

These people are usually shut down in the comments section, and then they unfortunately delete the post. The lack of anonymity in this method, and likelihood of someone you know seeing it has made this form of question asking a lot less fun.

Luckily, there is a substitute for this that, while not quite as good as Yahoo Answers, it is far better than Facebook groups. I am talking, of course, about Quora.

So, if you are looking for a place to ask the weirdest or most inappropriate question that you can think of, Quora is the right place for you. But if you’re looking for a selection of the most absurd questions to have a laugh at, read on.

While Quora might not be able to exactly fill the hole that Yahoo Answers has left, it is a pretty worthy substitute. Nowhere else will you be able to find such brazen, shameless, questions about any topic that you can possibly think of.

Be real with yourself for a second, would you ever ask a question like one of these online? It is a good way to get advice from people who do not know you (and therefore are not biased) but people in the answers do not hold back.

You need a pretty thick skin to ask questions anonymously online, could you do it?
