    Loving the AMA with the ex-prisoner, would love to read one from a female ex-prisoner to see the comparisons / differences between the two prisons.

    Would anyone like to talk to someone who has deslexa and explain what it's like to live as someone who can't really spell sound out letters and words and have issues with grammar?.

    As i see here on boards people don't seem to understand what deslexa is and what it's like to live with it. So I would love to do the Q and A with people and explain more about it.

    I'd be interested to see an AMA with a functioning psychopath.

    Provided we don't get a Walter Mitty type.

    There may be an overlap.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, this is great - keep them coming! We have so many interesting people who are users of ths site but sometimes until you see in black and white that someone thinks your profession/experience is interesting, you might not bother to apply - this thread is helping people see what others find interesting.

    I'm adding funeral director/undertaker to the list, I think that'd be quite interesting.

    Adding this from the Top 5 of 2017 thread. I think "Irish Soccer Player" was already up there but no harm :)
