Here’s a good one from goo Ranking, a look at what questions from women men just cannot answer directly.


Between the 23rd and 25th of March 2010 1,128 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 50.5% of the sample were female, 15.1% in their teens, 16.9% in their twenties, 28.8% in their thirties, 21.1% in their forties, 9.4% in their fifties, and 8.7% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

I’m having a lot of fun translating this one – not that I get asked any of the questions (liar! – ed.), just that I can understand the feeling when people get asked them!
