If you like those questions on Crasch, you should get The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, which is word for word where most of those questions came from. I know because I've flipped through it about 10 times since I was 17. One of my favorite things is seeing how much some of my answers change every couple of years. :) I think you'd love it.
