Q & A WITH A DIFFERENCE: THE WHY, HOW, WHAT, WHEN……..?

I must stress that although this is a game of some sort, I am trying to impart some kind of thinking which makes you think,  sometimes out of the box!

On the one hand, it is a creative exercise. On the other, it widens your knowledge and perspective of things or answers which is slightly of a different kind. The latter is more difficult to accomplish.  I just hope that those who are following and reading my blog understand my dual objectives.

Let’s discuss some answers to a given question: Example – Question 1: When will our fingers do the talking?

The question seems quite innocently state a mere fact. So, what is your immediate response? 1) When we are talking to a mute. 2) When we a miming  3) When our fingers and keyboard come into contact.

I’m very certain that most of us can think of options one and two because we have been expose to these kind of experiences. How many of us would think of option three as an answer?

Example Question2: When it is alive, we call it “pig”. What do we call it when it is dead? The answer can be 1) a dead pig. 2) a carcass. 3) Pork.
