True story. Seattle area. 90’s. Lotsa chatter because MSFT used strange questions to test applicants. Friend was inventing similar questions for our company.
Asked me two:
1) “2000 years from now what would aliens notice?”
Easy answer: Highways.
2) “What is the greatest achievement of western civilization?”
Easy answer: “a united states marine”.
The first one made him think but agreed. The second one floored him.
I mean it.
