HubPages is a place to discuss and explore a variety of ideas. Some you'll agree with, others you may find don't suit you. Fortunately, there are so many types of questions, you can almost always find something of interest.
The "hot" questions tend to be recycled old questions that have been around forever and the same ones keep showing up. I wish they would change that before people completely tire of this part of HP. If you want to see new questions, click on "latest" instead of "hot"
