100 Random questions to ask people


The following is a list of 100 best random questions to ask people in any situation:

1. Why do bad things happen to good people?

If you ask this random question to people, it elicits a deep conversation.

Perhaps, the best possible answer to such an unanswerable question is that God gives his children free will and sometimes we choose not to use it in the best way possible.

And people take everything for granted and don’t appreciate every moment of life.

2. Is there anything you wish more people would understand about life?

Human psyche is by far the most complicated and mysterious thing in this existence because of our unique gift called “Intelligence.”

However, this same gift creates conflict and influences war in the world. It’s very hard to understand someones’ purest thoughts and future actions.

So, asking this random question to people will encourage a healthy debate and deep conversation.

However, ask this random question to people and get to know their perspective on it.

4. Do you believe that all religions preach the same message?

There’s no such thing as an entirely pure religion nowadays because all religions try to evolve and adapt themselves to modern time needs and influences.

Very rarely people are following the original teachings of their faith but they add something from outside which then makes the religion become altered.

In these circumstances, it is hard to say whether all religions preach the same message. This is one of the best random questions to ask people to know their thoughts on this topic.

5. If you had to live on another planet, which one would you pick?

This is such a random question to ask people for fun. It’s always been hard to imagine living on another planet.

I’m sure my first choice would be Mars, just because of how close it is to Earth and it doesn’t look too different from Earth.

But once I think about the temperature differences, I probably would want to find somewhere like Venus since it seems closer in size compared to Earth.

Besides that, I’m not sure But ask your friends or family members and get to know their preferences.
