Forget round manhole covers!* Glassdoor.com has a very neat article containing 25 oddest interview questions of 2010. Most of them requires some clever guesstimation on the interviewee’s part, some are logical puzzles, but some are just…plain odd, like this one:
3. “What is the philosophy of Martial Arts?”

24. “How are M&M’s made?”
I once skimmed through a brief article on how the letters are made, but I’ve clean forgotten them by now.
