naw... if there isnt anything to talk about why waste your breath??

Only if there is nothing else to talk about.

I'm with PORPOISE. I try to talk about more interesting things if I can.

No, its just a waste of time
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 3/25/05 - 4:56:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
sometimes - i try not too though

At the beginning, yes. It's sort of a warm-up exercise before the real conversation begins.

Sometimes I can't think of another good conversation opener so I ask something I already know the answer too. It's only embarrassing if you get caught. ;)

yes all the time hoping that it will lead to something good to talk about
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 6/27/05 - 4:22:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
All the time, and I get shot down for it too.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 6/27/05 - 4:25:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, it's fun when people get mad at you for it
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 6/27/05 - 4:30:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if I just want to talk to someone but can't think of anything else interesting or important to say

come on you know you all do it some times
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 7/29/05 - 4:50:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, only if I'm talking to someone who I have absolutely nothing in common with.

That defeats the purpose of a question.
