11. best closing question ever...
what reasons do you have to not offer me the job today? (if they are stunned into silence, like some have been for people I know, say this : "I am very interested in working here and would love the opportunity to address any barriers, if there are any, to my being offered this position." and then shut up.)

One of the biggest mistakes people make interviewing is not allowing natural silences- trying to fill the gaps with noise. Take time to think, and measure your responses. And allow the interviewer to do the same. Don't fill the silence with jibber jabber. ;-) It was the best lesson I ever learned.

Good luck!
