If you ask a question that doesn't really have a "best" answer, how do you decide?

Ex.: "How old are your kids?"
With a question like that, there really isn't a "best" answer, like with a question along the lines of, "What movie is this line from?" So, how do you pick your best answer? I usually either go with the most entertaining answer, or something like that, or I pick the person with the lowest level.

  • I choose the cutest person. in this case that would be me :) lol

    nah... Usually I'll pick the person who used a complete sentence in their answer. Or who answered thoroughly. lol. Probably a little obsessive.

    Like if I say "how old are your kids?" I'd pick the person that says "I only have one baby. He is 6 weeks old. He's the love of my life" over the person who says "6 weeks old"

  • the lowest score

    Answer by 2BlondeBabies at 2:12 PM on Oct. 8, 2010

  • By votes or what's interesting. If it's a question that never gets a good answer (like one person answers and the next 20 answers are nothing but arguments about the first answer) I just leave it hang open. I have some questions that go back 2 years that never got a "real" answer so they're still out there.
