What are some conversation starters you guys like to use?

I'm pretty generic with mine. I usually say something like "hey, how are you today?" or something a long those lines. If I know what the person is interested in then I'll start the conversation off by mentioning that interest. I hate being so bland and uninteresting with my conversation starters but I'm way too shy to say anything funny and witty.

College/School it's easy:
-What's your major?
-What do you want to do with your degree?
-What year are you in?

Outside of college:
-Where are you from?
-Have you lived here your whole life?
-What do you do for a living?
-What are some of your hobbies?
-Do you have children,s.o.,etc?

Hey, I was passing by and just knew that I couldn't leave this (setting) without getting to know you first.

That's a nice piece of jewelry you have there. Its as bright as your eyes.

It's so hot outside, I wish it would rain.

YO MAMA IS SO NICE, she gave money to the homeless.

Someone here smells fantastic!

I remember one time someone brought up some Akon song, me mentioning how it was amusing, and then some conversation/inside joke started from there.

I never have any good conversation starters, though, just the standard crap.

I'd probably think of something that i would like to hear if a person in your position walked up to me. Aka try and place yourself in their shoes.

It's also commonly known that people just like to talk about themselves, and you know, if you areally alisten, you'll find that people are more interesting then you think !
