I was once asked why manhole covers are round.


I give an outside of the box answer:

"Because manhole covers are heavy, and to move it, it is much easier to roll a round manhole cover than a square one."

I've also been asked, "if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?"

Normally I answer:
"Red-Black Tree"

But if I were going for a compiler writer position I would answer:
"Abstract-Syntax Tree"
