You might have see this on "who's line is it anyway" on TV
It is a game where you just answer the last person's question with your own question.

What is your definition of nice?

how would you describe daffodils?

Lance
2006-Mar-28, 07:21 PM
What are daffodils?

SeanF
2006-Mar-28, 07:37 PM
How can you not know what daffodils are?

Lance
2006-Mar-28, 08:03 PM
Do you not understand that I am severely flower challenged?

SeanF
2006-Mar-28, 08:04 PM
Well, why didn't you say so before?

Lance
2006-Mar-28, 08:14 PM
Why didn't you make it clear that you didn't know?

Swift
2006-Mar-28, 08:48 PM
Why didn't you know that he didn't know?

Titana
2006-Mar-28, 11:47 PM
Why are you all asking so many times?????......:D

GDwarf
2006-Mar-29, 02:45 AM
Why are you asking why we're asking with all those question marks? (Uh oh, I just sowed the seed for infinite recursion...)

WaxRubiks
2006-Mar-29, 07:48 AM
what kind of a question is that?

Swift
2006-Mar-29, 03:55 PM
Are there different kinds of questions?

WaxRubiks

did the Titanic hit an iceberg?

Lance
2006-Mar-29, 04:21 PM
You didn't hear?

Moose
2006-Mar-29, 04:25 PM
Is the gossip juicy?

Swift
2006-Mar-29, 04:32 PM
Isn't that what People magazine said?

Moose
2006-Mar-29, 04:55 PM
Would you happen to be a paparazzo?

Gruesome
2006-Mar-29, 05:03 PM
What is a paparazzo?

Moose
2006-Mar-29, 05:09 PM
Can anyone help this person out?

Swift
2006-Mar-29, 07:39 PM
I don't know, which way did he come in?

Moose
2006-Mar-29, 07:40 PM
Wasn't that the closet door?

dvb
2006-Mar-29, 07:56 PM
Are you saying that he's coming out of the closet? :confused:

Moose
2006-Mar-29, 08:00 PM
Is it too late to change my question?

dvb

Who are you asking?

farmerjumperdon
2006-Mar-29, 08:37 PM
Way too silly right from the start?

Swift
2006-Mar-29, 10:34 PM
Do you have a continuing problem with silly threads?

Lance
2006-Mar-30, 05:26 PM
Isn't it obvious?

antoniseb
2006-Mar-30, 06:00 PM
Did you hope this would be as clever and meta as the Questions game in Rosencrantz And Guilderstern Are Dead?

Swift
2006-Mar-30, 07:12 PM
Wasn't that a play?

Halcyon Dayz
2006-Mar-30, 07:45 PM
Or a movie?

Gruesome
2006-Mar-30, 07:56 PM
Did they make a book out of the movie?

Swift
2006-Mar-30, 08:04 PM
Don't you mean a movie out of the book?

WaxRubiks
2006-Mar-31, 10:13 AM
was or wasn't there a book?

mahesh
2006-Mar-31, 11:59 AM
could you repeat that?

WaxRubiks
2006-Mar-31, 12:24 PM
did you computer crash?

Robert Andersson
2006-Mar-31, 05:45 PM
Why do you interrupt with irrelevant questions?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-03, 11:25 AM
It's not nearly obvious, is it?

Swift
2006-Apr-03, 01:58 PM
Isn't it more obvious when you right it down?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-03, 02:15 PM
Write it down right, right?

Robert Andersson
2006-Apr-03, 07:51 PM
What do you mean by "it"?

Gruesome
2006-Apr-03, 08:20 PM
What do you mean by "what"?

Robert Andersson
2006-Apr-03, 09:01 PM
What do you mean by "mean"?

Titana
2006-Apr-03, 09:04 PM
Why are you asking what he means by mean?

Lance
2006-Apr-03, 09:25 PM
Isn't it clear that he doesn't know what "means" means?

Swift
2006-Apr-03, 10:32 PM
Does he mean mean as in meaning an average?

Lance
2006-Apr-03, 11:15 PM
Is it mean to think "mean" means mean as in "meaning"?

Peter Canuck

Robert Andersson

Why do you wanna know?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-04, 10:53 AM
Did we almost find the meaning in that recent banter?

GDwarf
2006-Apr-04, 11:25 AM
I dunno, did we?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-04, 11:36 AM
If I mean what I say, does it matter if it's the truth or lies?

WaxRubiks
2006-Apr-04, 11:47 AM
do you mean that?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-04, 12:00 PM
I can't quite remember, is that unusual?

mahesh
2006-Apr-04, 12:26 PM

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-04, 12:53 PM
It's not unusual to lost by everyone. Is that what Tom Jowens said?

WaxRubiks

Robert Andersson
2006-Apr-04, 08:08 PM
Are you suggesting FTSB is possible, in spite of current theories?

GDwarf
2006-Apr-04, 08:44 PM
Are you suggesting it isn't?

Lance
2006-Apr-04, 08:57 PM
Why would anyone think it isn't?

Robert Andersson
2006-Apr-05, 06:55 AM
Do you mean Zweistein was wrong?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-05, 07:53 AM
Wrong?

WaxRubiks
2006-Apr-05, 07:56 AM
Didn't Zweisteins's theory need adjusting?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-05, 08:26 AM
Adjusting?

Is this the answer Equestrian with Equestrian thread?

Robert Andersson
2006-Apr-05, 05:02 PM
Why can't you people just answer the questions?

Swift
2006-Apr-06, 03:28 AM
Didn't I just answer that question?

Peter Canuck
2006-Apr-06, 03:44 AM
Do you the first question or the last question?

Swift
2006-Apr-06, 04:28 AM
Didn't you leave a word out of that question?

mahesh
2006-Apr-06, 08:05 AM
which word?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-06, 08:17 AM
Which question?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-06, 07:11 PM
Was it Peter's question?

Swift
2006-Apr-06, 09:07 PM
Wasn't it obviously Peter's question?

GDwarf
2006-Apr-06, 10:40 PM
Didn't you think it wasn't Peter's question?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-06, 11:56 PM
If it was Peter's question, then how many roads must a man walk down?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-07, 09:14 AM
I should question the sense in looking for an answer to a question referring to another question, shouldn't I?

Swift
2006-Apr-07, 02:56 PM
Aren't you always sensible?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-07, 03:16 PM
A bit wordy though, do you agree?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-07, 05:45 PM
Why would you call it wordy?

Swift
2006-Apr-07, 07:25 PM
Don't you think that more than 10 words is too wordy?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-07, 09:23 PM
If it was the most succinct way to ask a question, would fifty words be wordy, or just enough to show the complexities of our language and the limitations we have trying to express our must subtle ideas in a forum in which anyone and everyone might be ready to misunderstand a shorter query?

Swift
2006-Apr-09, 06:16 PM
What?

Lance
2006-Apr-09, 11:55 PM
Do you need antoniseb to explain it to you?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-10, 08:48 AM
Perhaps if Antoniseb created a diagram it would help us understand the idea?

WaxRubiks
2006-Apr-10, 09:52 AM
do you mean a 3D diagram?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-10, 10:42 AM
Is a 3D diagram possible in this 2D 'net world?

WaxRubiks

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-10, 10:58 AM
How do I know what I want?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-10, 12:29 PM
Do you mean 'how do you know what you desire' or 'how do you know what you lack'?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-10, 12:31 PM
How do you know what desire you lack?

Swift
2006-Apr-10, 12:32 PM
Are you saying I'm lacking?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-10, 12:51 PM
What do you want to hear me say?

Swift
2006-Apr-10, 05:12 PM
Why is it about what I want?

Gruesome
2006-Apr-10, 07:48 PM
What's with all the questions?

Swift
2006-Apr-10, 07:50 PM
Don't you think that asking questions will lead to knowledge?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-10, 07:55 PM
Is knowledge better than a lifetime supply of pie?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-10, 11:04 PM
What kind of pie?

Titana
2006-Apr-11, 12:03 AM
Could it be Pumpkin Pie?......:p

Swift
2006-Apr-11, 02:19 AM
Couldn't you make it Sweet Potato Pie?

Lance
2006-Apr-11, 03:54 AM
Why are we talking about pies now?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-11, 12:08 PM
Are you more hungry or ignorant?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-11, 01:45 PM
Which would you prefer?

Lance
2006-Apr-11, 06:03 PM
Did someone else eat them while you weren't looking?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-11, 08:50 PM
Is that the person retching over in the corner?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-11, 10:28 PM
Is that partially digested Brussels Sprouts I smell?

Lance
2006-Apr-12, 02:17 AM
Can't you tell the difference between the aroma of partially digested Brussels Sprouts and the lovely scent of lemon sorbet?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 02:38 AM
Are you trying to make me sick?

Lance
2006-Apr-12, 03:19 AM
Do you expect me to know that lemon sorbet makes you sick?

mahesh
2006-Apr-12, 08:16 AM
hey you, so where's my pizza?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 09:18 AM
I thought you didn't like Pizza?

mahesh
2006-Apr-12, 12:13 PM
are you asking a question or making a statement?

Gruesome
2006-Apr-12, 12:17 PM
What's the difference?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 12:18 PM
Can I question your statement about me asking a question or making a steakment?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 12:47 PM
Did you know that there is no such word as "steakment"?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 12:54 PM
Did you know that the word Gullable isn't in the dictionary?

antoniseb

What's another word for Thesaurus?

mahesh
2006-Apr-12, 01:26 PM
Roget's?
can i put this in interogative form? or aren't i allowed?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 01:38 PM
Why would you want to do that?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 01:45 PM
Wouldn't put it in the form of a statement, rather than a question, be against the rules of this game?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-12, 02:07 PM
What are rules for, anyway?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 02:32 PM
Rules are made to order aren't they?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-12, 02:35 PM
If we permit compound sentences with statements followed by questions, wouldn't that make this more pointless than the word association game?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 02:37 PM
Is it possible to answer a question with a question in a pointlessness manner?

mahesh

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 02:42 PM
Do I sound serious?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 03:01 PM
How do I know what you sound like based upon your typing?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-12, 03:14 PM
Shall I type more seriously?

Lance
2006-Apr-12, 04:57 PM
Do you think you could?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 05:44 PM
How about using a "Serious" smilie :neutral: ?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-12, 07:10 PM
Would the question be less meaningful if he wasn't serious when he typed it?

Gruesome
2006-Apr-12, 07:21 PM
Does it matter?

ToSeek
2006-Apr-12, 08:40 PM
Does it matter if it matters?

Swift
2006-Apr-12, 09:01 PM
If it didn't matter, would that be anti-matter?

Lance
2006-Apr-12, 10:19 PM
Should we put them together to see if they blow up?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-12, 11:09 PM
Would that prove it to people who think antimatter is a hoax?

Don't you think it's the person asking the question who wants to know?

crosscountry
2006-Apr-13, 11:29 PM
why do you ask?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-13, 11:30 PM
So, was it Euclid who wanted to know?

Peter Canuck

Couldn't you do something, since you are a moderator?

antoniseb
2006-Apr-15, 11:49 AM
Is it by asking or answering that we establish who we really are?

2006-Apr-15, 02:32 PM
Can we really ever know who we really are?

all right, who has llamas?

Isn't it important to learn how to defend yourself against pointed sticks?

If all I have are sharp sticks, doesn't that make everything look kind of like a llama?

Are you willing to talk sense about llamas, sharp sticks, and/or rotating black holes?

If you tossed both a llama and a pointed stick at a rotating black hole, which would cross the event horizon first?

Would it be easier to toss a lama?

Haven't you heard of The llama and camel act at the
Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus (http://www.mountlehmanllamas.com/camel-llama-circus.jpg)?

Wouldn't you guess it would be as easy as Googling the terms "llama" and "circus"?

But can't I google "Killing Llamas with sharp sticks so they toss their cookies" instead?

I thought everyone knew that when sharp stick wielding, cookie tossing South American llamas are confronted by humans with pointed sticks and a wry smile, they panic and scarper?
