Social Question

On the top of your head what are the top 5 questions that seem to get asked on Fluther again and again?

Asked by mattbrowne (31588points) May 23rd, 2010

I’m not interested in a detailed statistical analysis. I think different users will tend to notice and memorize different frequently asked questions. I’m curious about yours.

I don’t mean questions that are repeated have to be exactly the same. What I mean is ‘quite similar’. Here are my top 5 questions I noticed to pop up quite often:

What is the best way to lose weight?
Why do men cheat?
Why is cannabis still illegal?
What is a good wedding gift?
Why does my dog (or cat) pee on my carpet?

And yours are?

I have (insert medical condition that most sane people would go straight to the ER with), what should I do?

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Lightlyseared And then they get mad at you when you say “go to the ER” instead of “so, you’re going to need a #5 scalpel, some gauze, and this handy instruction guide at this link for preforming your own double bypass”.

@papayalily yup. Seriously there was a question here a while back that went “I have severe chest pain and am having difficulty breathing. What do you think I should do?”

3) What’s wrong with my ear/leg/stomach/arm/head? Go to a doctor! Why ask us? We can’t see you!
4) What do you think of Zeitgeist? I think technology is wasted on bullshit
5) Do you think the world will end Dec 2012? seriously, dude. Really? Really?

Thanks for all the wonderful examples. I realize that the boy likes girl and vice versa type question is missing in my own list. In fact, it could very well be the #1 FAQ.

@Dr_Dredd – I think the illegal immigration topic is a temporary phenomenon.

And I wonder whether the 2012 question will disappear altogether on December 22, 2012
or be replaced by a new FAQ like

Oh, we’re still here, why has the world not ended on December 21?
