Some vaguely remembered examples:
Q. Does this guy like me, if so how should I ask him out?
A. He's your phD supervisor and that would be the worst thing you could ever possibly do for your career, DO NOT ASK HIM OUT!
Q. How do I give my boyfriend the space he needs?
A. Sounds like he's got another girlfriend/wife/family, DTMFA!
They don't have to be just human relations questions, I will also accept things like (hypothetical example):
Q. What should I do on my upcoming trip to Bellingham, WA?
A. Haven't you heard, there has been a massive zombie outbreak in Bellingham, you should probably cancel.
Please help me find some more unexpected advice!!
