Dominik is celebrating his birthday with a neighborhood potluck dinner which he is hosting at his house. But this won't be just "any" potluck!

This will be a Socratic potluck, with 3 or 4 intriguing questions pre-announced as discussion topics.

What are those questions?

(provided by Dominik) "If you where abducted by aliens, and you don't remember what happened, would you want to find out?"
(provided by Duf) "Which do you think is worse, going blind or going deaf?"
(provided by Teresa B.) "Would you save a stranger who was drowning?"

Is this the final set of questions? There is still room for one or two additional questions. Send us your question suggestions!

Below are EXAMPLES of questions. (We won't be re-using these questions, but we are posting them to give you an idea of what was discussed in the previous similar event.) These are the ACTUAL questions discussed at the Socratic potluck event on July 23, 2022:
• "In your life, how many of the people around you do you think are soulless? and why?"
• "In a time of drought and a limited water supply for a growing population, are we wasting water by watering city parks with expansive lawns and plants?"
• "The homelessness crisis in this city is growing in scale and deadliness. What can or should be done about it and by whom?"
