This is a question Question of the Week suggestions

Each week we ask a question. The idea is to generate material that's:

* interesting to read, i.e. we won't get bored of reading the answers after about 10 of them
* not been asked on this site before
* fun to answer

What would you like to ask? (We've left this question open - so feel free to drop in ideas anytime.)

Your earliest experiences of the internet
Mine was downloading (cough) stuff from newsgroups over dial-up, and having to wait up to a minute for a tiny 300-pixel picture to appear which would invariably prove a disappointment.
And people getting upset by alt.princess.di.die.die
And a shitty geocities website I used to run. It had an animated gif urging people to email me. Simple times, for simple folk.

How have you changed the world?
I once pressed 'like' on the STOP Kony video.

How will your name, or what you've done, big or small go down in history?
Have you:
Made up a 'fact' that is now common knowledge?
Created an impressive bit of graffiti/vandalism?
Encouraged a friend who's now famous?
Killed someone?

Foot in mouth syndrome
When I returned from a trip to south america, my mum, worried that i had been corrupted by Colombian drug-lords enquired, "were you ever offered 'the' hash when you were away?". My reply was an instant reassuring, "No, no, it's all cocaine down there".

Any stories of speaking recklessly before thinking?

Poor personal hygiene
We've all known or worked with or sat on the tube next to someone who stank of B.O. or had some of last night's dinner in their hair. Share the yukky anecdotes.

Superstitions
On a recent flight I met a guy who insisted on sitting behind the wings, as if the engines were to explode, death would be less painful. Does anyone have weirder beliefs?

Bit like this suggestion, maybe. ..

If you can't do… teach
I was once told by a teacher attempting to teach us about clouds that the amount of water on earth never changes, apparently she hadn't done very well in chemistry. What worrying ignorance do you remember from your school days?

Catch-22
I do Twitter. I'm not proud of it, but it provides an outlet for some venting of spleen that doesn't fit well with other media. Largely because most people aren't interested, but that's beside the point for now.

I relatively recently started using the hashtag #twitterwang, which is based on the Mitchell and Webb sketch Numberwang, and which I use when a tweet that I send - without any premeditation or buggering about - comes to precisely 140 characters.

The problem being that, by definition, #twitterwang cannot be part of the original message. Thereby meaning I have to send a fresh tweet, comprising solely of "#twitterwang".

Meaning that the #twitterwang hashtag is wholly pointless, since without having to go back and look through the individual tweets, nobody can really see what the original twitterwang was.

Has anybody else ever come up with something so completely self-defeating and futile?

Please...

somebody?

1st World Problems
After listening to someone whine on about being stranded on a Cruise Liner with no air conditioning and no hot food, nothing but salad and gin and tonics.

What other stories of sheer single minded self pity get your goat.

When the friendship is over...
A couple of years ago I received a message via F*cebook from a 'friend' calmly explaining that she was sorry, but she HAD to 'de-friend' me because I was appearing at the top of her 'Bejewelled Blitz' leader board most weeks and she wanted to be at the top herself.

What crazy things have you guys done that you've lost friends over?

Insincere apologies
Feel a grudging social pressure to apologise for something, even though you don't feel remotely sorry about it and are, if anything, kinda proud of it? (yes, Mr Tevez, we're looking at you...)

Reincarnation?
If you could live your life again, who would you be?
Would you come back as yourself; your significant other; somebody famous; your cat/dog/hamster; historical figure or somebody fictional?
and why? Is it because they’re rich, successful,pampered, intelligent, funny, stupid, mad as a box of cats?
Because we all know we’re going to come back as a starving child in Ethiopia or somesuch.
