Orthon:
It used to be "How tall are you, really?", nowadays it's "What are you going to do after you graduate from high school?"

I don't mind answering them, but it's rare that people ask me anything else, so I've grown tired of it.

When/if you get to college/university it'll be "So, what is your major?" It's a decent (if kind of bland) conversation starter.

Why don't you play football (American)?
Because I believe hockey is infinitely superior.
Do you figure skate?
No. Hockey is different.
Why do you think it's okay to sit on a bench with a bunch of guys for a (insert period of time) and slide around with them on the ice? (I have been asked that by a SEVERELY homophobic idiot)
Have you ever seen a hockey game? Compare that to the ass-tapping in football or short shorts of basketball. (Disclaimer: I'm fine with homosexuals and have homosexual friends)
Why are you so smart?
Because I actually study. Shocker, I know.
You know gaming causes violence/destroy your life?
Really? Your still asking me this? There is no evidence that a person with a normal mind has committed violence because of their hobby. And I still have a life.
Where did you get your accent from? Are you British?
I was born in Indiana (have a bit of a northern accent as compared to the dialect of the south) and have a speech impediment. When I say the last bit (this annoys me) people gasp like I announced I have the plague.
This is only the first few that came to mind, but they still annoy me.

BaronAsh:
The last one is when two girls ask you to chose a characteristics about them that you prefer, such a "whose boots do you think are better?" Because I always give them a strait forward answer and I get shit for choosing one over the other.

I utterly detest this one - pretty much learned the best solution is to ask another friend what they think then sneak away

Actually got bitched at by a friend earlier today about "should I keep my hair brunette or keep it this blonde?" and replying that "it's fine just leave it" - got a bitching for saying only "fine"...

"Why Are You so tall?" To which I respond "Im more evolved than you, now leave me alone you neanderthal". Im actually only 6'3. Judging from other people who get asked this question on here, thats not that tall. My neigbour is about 6'8, so he makes me feel small.

"Why would People drink to get drunk?" Frequently asked by my parents. Its because beer is terrible, so is wine. The only reason to consume them is to get drunk so you can either have more fun or forget about your troubles.

FirmartheTrilby:
"Why do you buy games"

It's just so... dumb

Just reply with "sexual thrills". Thats what I do when people ask me "Why did you buy x"

ReservoirAngel:

And then of course, there's self-concious straight guys asking me if I'd do them. This one isn't SO bad, but it's their responses when I say 'no' that annoy me. If they can't take me theoretically shooting them down, WHY did they ask? And they're straight, what do they care if a gay guy doesn't want to ride them!? Fuckers...

adding more:
"When did you choose you were gay?"
"So do you think that guy's hot?" *points to random dude*

People seem to have the oddest misconception that gay guys are completely desperate and would fuck any other gay guy.

So why don't you dress more girly?

Seriously hate this question now. Yes I'm a girl. No I'm not a lesbian. I don't like dresses, skirts or make-up therefore I do not wear them. What's wrong with my jeans and t-shirt? Terribly sorry I'm a tomboy and don't fit into how your view of a girl should be. I dress like this because it's comfortable and I like it. Why else would I wear it?

Tell them your undercover as a Boy.

I should try that! Shame the boobs would give it away...

then your going to have to think of something witty to say. Their next question is either going to be something about your boobs or voice. It's going to be one of those two.

Mine would have to be:

"Don't you have to not wash your hair to get dreadlocks?" The answer is no, because my hair is naturally fine it means I had to have it backcombed and it takes regular washing and maintenance to keep them.
The other is "What does your nickname mean?" to which I have to say, whatever your thinking, its wrong.

Of what team are you? Or: What is your favorite team?
Cant people comprehend that I dont like football??!! Why my country is so close minded!?

"Do you ever talk?"

I got that a lot in High School, from people I didn't even know. We haven't spoken because we've never met?

For the record no, no I don't.

Since I'm a guy with long hair, I often get asked: "Why do you have long hair?"
My answer: Because I can.

Unfortunately that answer doesn't always seem to satisfy the questioner, even though it is the truth.

Ah drat, on the spot wit. This is where I fail miserably.

Just say "SHIT! my covers blown!" Then run away.

<-- last name McCartney

"Are you related to Paul McCartney?"

HAHA YOUR SO FUNNY! HAVEN'T HEARD THAT ONE BEFORE!

"Do you play sports?" This is usually asked while i'm talking about videogames. People also seem to think that because of my large frame (I've been compared to a gorilla.) I am violent...this pisses me off to no end because, frankly, outside the virtual world I couldn't hurt a fly.

Marter:
"Has the bus come yet?"

People ask me that when I'm still standing there waiting for the bus.

I don't like that.

The bus stop near me has 3 different buses stop at it. Each goes in a different direction after a few streets. It's a perfectly reasonable question under certain circumstances.

Do You play basketball? (If you're tall)

Kukakkau:
So what is that one question that everytime you meet someone new etc they always have to ask you, that really annoys you?

For me it's "Do you manicure your nails?" - my nails are naturally bright white when they get longer and everyone always asks me this.

Also little less common is "did you straighten your hair?" - I always get asked this if I shower before going out since it makes my hair look different and I always frown on guys using straighteners to get "that look" they love so much

And imagine both of them being asked in judging tones

I get asked if my nails are manicured or false just because they're shiny, smooth and extremely long.
People ask if I straighten my hair, and disbelieve me when I tell them truthfully that NO! I do not. My hair is PERFECTLY straight, and NEVER in my life have I used straighteners. Even using curlers to style my for special occasions results in the curls coming out almost instantly because my hair refuses to curl unless its been plated.

"You're tall arn't you?"

I don't know!!! You tell me!!! Am I tall!!??

Annoys me so much. Why are they asking? Are they blind!?

You Sir have made my day. I am now going to do that next time. Thank you.

People walking up and asking "Why do you want to learn Japanese?" while acting like I'm a god damned Japanophile. But then it's also people who I don't know at all, so fuck 'em I say.

That and on Touhou vids where someone asks "What anime is this?" I've answered that question, and seen it answered on practically EVERY TOUHOU VIDEO SOMEWHERE. It's. Getting. Old. FAST!
yup, tvtropes was right about that berserk button

Kaboose the Moose:
When people learn I am a medical student they ask "Is medicine like Scrubs?" or "have you killed anyone yet?" or "Have you seen many penises lately?"

It's begun to irritate me now!

"Yes, yes, and oh yes!"

Mine is "Are you Argentinian." I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT! When I look at myself, I think "damnit, that's the most stereotypical looking British person I've ever seen!" But apparently I look like I'm from Argentina.

I WIN!

I never really get asked anything. I don't get asked what I did today, I don't get asked what music I like, I don't get asked what my opinion the Chinese Government is.
I just don't get asked anything.

When/if you get to college/university it'll be "So, what is your major?" It's a decent (if kind of bland) conversation starter.

I get a variation of that nowadays really, because my high school(the Swedish equivalent, internet-translators tells me I should call it "upper secondary school") is rather specialized into IT & Computer subjects. This means that people ask me what I get taught at school. Usually, it's kind of hard to explain.

So, logically, if I go to an university or a college, I should choose something that's not related to computers or IT. It'll be easier to explain :p

anthony87:
"Why do you have a beard?"
or
"Why do you grow your hair so long?"

BECAUSE I FUCKING LIKE HOW MY HAIR AND BEARD LOOK OKAY!?!?

Agreed! I have long hair too. Though The question I hate more than that is "What classes are you taking" not stupid, but something I don't want to answer for every person I talk to at a party.
To the long hair questions though, I usually answer, "I don't feel like cutting it". I do also like my hair.

It's not a question, but:

"You've grown!"

Really?! Wow, that explains a lot!

That usually comes from people who haven't seen me since I was "this tall!".

Ok, got a few.

1. I was homeschooled literally 11/12ths of my school career, and am in college, having tested in without a diploma, and into mid-advanced classes. But until College the question always came "So do you like, actually do work?"

"NO I fucking beat my meat all day, I just used the sheer power of my will to get into college"

2. I like metal, sometimes MetalCORE, including rough vocals "Do you like x(killswitch, slipknot or some obscure band)?"

"No, I dont like killswitch, slipknot is an affront to nature and I hate indy music"

3. I like instrumentals, Joe Satriani is one of my favorite artists, I used to try to share the wonder.

"So where are the words?"
"There are none"
"Oh, I don't care then" *removing headphones/walking away
Ignorant Peasants!

4.I am a gamer
"So do you like, DO anything?"
"No actually, I don't(honesty)"
"Ugh, thats pathetic, why dont you learn an instrument or a sport?"
"Because in the grand scheme not ONE of those matters one fucking dot more, aside from a few side benefits only reaped by the serious, I enjoy my hobby"

5.I can cook/bake
"are you gay?"
"NO! I just find having control of what goes into my body nice, aside from being able to manage my own, picky tastes"

6.I rigged a nice, high bass stereo in my car
"so do you play rap in here?"
"No, fucking homeboys and g's can keep that tuneless shit, I play mainly metal and techno/electonic"

7. Programming Major
"so you fix computers?"
"No, believe it or not, not every single computer specialist exists to service your home pc, I intend to work in a corporation i.e. google or yahoo or somesuch, working on code that would blow your neanderthal mind"

8. I am not a smiley kinda guy, I tend to have a straight face/scowl/smirk(derision) most of the time.
"why so sad?"
"life is pointless, why?"
"Really, thats sad"
" not really, gives me freedom to quit pretending it matters and enjoy myself"

9. "Why do you do/wear/listen to/enjoy/eat/abstain from that?"

"Because I like it, it pleases me, I despise normality and can fully handle your dislike, kiss my ass.
Furthermore, I can use words longer than 7 letters and I will anytime I see fit,
Tophats are lost classics of style,
Trenchcoats are Hero clothing,
Sword collecting doesnt make me violent, idiots like you do though....
Metal is expressive not just loud,
I can be a smart Christian and still believe,
I hate almost all tv most especially family guy and south park,
I love technology, hate nature,
I dont care much about death etc,
Bill Gates is a nerd too,
I don't have to accept anything you do or are,just allow you to be in peace with it.
And Finally, your opinion means NOTHING To me, literally nothing, I do things based on my own preference, so you can save your arrogant breath and spare me, I am well aware I defy norms and have no intent to change. "

I have more, may post them later

My grandparents ask this while I'm in the room. (Note: My mamaw is gonna be 88 on the 16th of this month & my papaw is 90.)

"Has Neelie gone home yet?"

It's funny the first few times, but after awhile it gets annoying... poor senile grandparents. I just say, "I'M RIGHT HERE!" as loud as I can.

yesjam:
I'm in Canada, so it follows:
Do you guys live in igloos?

Im Icelandic and i just laugh when i get that question (I have made an igloo once but that was just for fun)

I never get asked that. I was however once asked what state Iceland is in. Was rather funny, and I guffawed quite a lot because of it.

Any job interviewer that says "So tell me about a time when you..."

Any variation of that question drives me nuts.

How old are you now?

Relatives are always surprizes to find out that I have aged a year each year. Its amazing, really.

The two most frequent ones are:

1. What are you going to school for?
Me: Criminal Justice
Oh man I love NCIS/CSI/Any cop show
Me: It's actually nothing like that, our department head made a speech like that on day one and told anyone who thought it was going to be like that to GTFO.

2. So you know a lot about firearms?
Me: I guess, I'm no expert but I'm pretty informed.
What do you know about (Gun from COD)/ I have an AK-47.
Me: Nothing you need to know/ If you have an actual AK-47, we should put that thing in a museum. You probably have a Type-56 or some knockoff.

my parents asking: do you have a girlfriend?

I saw my gran for xmas and she kept asking me to do things by saying "mary can you...." - mary is my mother...and I'm male

Oh god same thing "Yur from Scotland?? Wut states tha in?" - laughed so hard I fell out my chair

I myself hate a pointless "why?" question.

"Have you seen the new resident evil movie?"
"No."
"Why?"

When someone hears that I train in mixed martial arts:
"Do you have a black belt?" "Have you gotten into any fights?" "Can you break bricks with a karate chop?" It's not so much the questions themselves but the disappointed looks on their faces when I say "No." No, not everyone who trains in martial arts is some kind of invincible grandmaster champion who can knock out an army while wearing a blindfold.

When a group of people is having a conversation about a topic I know nothing about, or am not interested in:
"Why aren't you saying anything?" Hmm, I don't know. Maybe it's because I have nothing useful/interesting to add to the group's conversation about some party that I wasn't invited to, some movie I couldn't care less about, or something else that I know absolutely nothing about, and no one is making any attempt to include me in the conversation?

Or maybe it's because when I actually do have something to say, everyone just gives me a blank look or outright ignores me?

"You don't go out to clubs? So you just stay at home all the time?" Yes, of course, because there are no other hobbies that involve social interaction besides going to bars/clubs. Fuck, I hate the stereotypical college mentality that getting in some drunk chick's pants is the only thing worth living for.
