    Feb 29 2012: 1. Hey, aren't you the father of the President.
    2. Didn't I read that your daughter won the Nobel Peace Prize
    3. Your the TED Speaker and Fellow I read about right
    4. How was your meeting with Sir Ken Robinson.
    5. What inspired you to give the TED talk that was such a success
    6. Those children are so beautiful and smart they must be your grandchildren, right.

    My ego wants me to continue .... my humility says it is time to stop. Smile it is contagious.
    • Feb 29 2012: I smiled all the way down the list Robert.

      Thank you for the humorous reply.
  • Mar 2 2012: I thought of one:

    "Would you be interested in attending a TED global for.....FREE?"

    Mar 2 2012: "What are you afraid of?" To help me overcome the perceived obstacles in my path.

    Also, "Would you like any help?" is also nice to hear.
  • Feb 29 2012: The question doesn't matter to me.......it is their sincerity in asking it.

    Don't ask me what time it is, if what you really want is to leave the place where we are.

    Don't ask me how I am feeling, when what you want is for me to help you with a task.

    I guess to me, any question is worth asking, as long as the person is sincere in the asking, and they listen to the reply, and then the conversation takes off from there.

    I enjoy questions that turn into conversations..............I dislike when individuals questions to suck up information, and do not have the courtesy to even thank the individuals who responded.

    Just my honest opinion.

    Feb 28 2012: It would be beneficial if they asked me questions that i mgiht have some hope of answering - If an answer is what they are seeking.
    Given this, they might like to ask me a question about love.
