This is a non-comprehensive and subjective list by Adrian. Many of the posts on Ask MetaFilter are answered quickly and accurately, but this list highlights some of the more difficult and unusual questions that occasionally bug us all. It also highlights those questions with outstanding answers.

  • Need engagement ring advice - Rule 1: No DeBeers diamonds. Rule 2: No DeBeers diamonds. Rule 3: Shop around, and don't give in to salespeople. Oissubke's comment stands out for its clarity and value (a little like a good engagement ring).
  • Life-altering experiences. "Can you point to a single experience in your life, as a child, which you can define as having contributed to the person you are today?" Some amazing responses, ranging from horrifying and heartwrenching to uplifting and life-affirming.
