To avoid that people (not you of course, those bad survey takers) fill out fake information on questions and don't even read we do have the need for control questions.

Some characteristics for good control questions:

- They cannot actually be true for a member filling out the control questions
- They are funny
- They are not too funny that they tempt people to answer incorrectly

A bad control question:

- Did you ever have a meet and greet with Michael Jackson?
This is a bad question because it can actually be true, although unlikely for the majority of members.

Examples our members encountered recently:

- How often do you drink bleach?
- In the past year, how many fatal heart attacks (resulting in death) have you experienced?
- How often does someone in your household do the following: Mail a Watermelon?

I thought it'd be fun if you guys would come up with some we could use. So go ahead!
