105 confusing and funny mind blowing questions.

A list of questions that will blow your mind and bend your brain.

"There are no such things as dumb questions."  That was what my 9th grade Algebra teacher told the class every day, which was encouraging, because it was rare for any teacher in my entire school career to allow a student to ask a "dumb question", let alone encourage it.

It always stuck with me and I tell my own kids this, too.  They can ask me any question they want, even personal ones; and I try not to judge them but just listen with open ears and an open heart.

It blows my mind sometimes, the types of questions they ask me.  They can make me laugh out loud, rack my brain, and perplex my mind to the point that I can't even answer their question, and it's okay.

I just point them to Alexa.  All kidding aside, you can learn so much about life when you ask questions of yourself, your family, your friends, and everyone else.

It's a great tool to get you out of situations, to help you get unstuck, to get the the truth, to help you resolve issues, and to help you solve problems.

If you're looking for questions that will cause your mind to expand and think outside of the box, read my list of 105 mind-blowing questions that will make you laugh, confuse you, stun you, puzzle you and make you go, hmmm.
