Good Questions: Times Your Kids Have Stumped You

Original image

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. This first question is for anyone with kids, preferably kids old enough to talk and ask compelling questions about the universe: what's the most interesting question your child has asked? My four-year-old has realized the limits of my knowledge and has started asking me to "ask Google." I'm looking for stuff of the "why is the sky blue?" variety, though I'm sure your kids have done better than that.*

2. If someone was making a movie about your life, who would play your parents?

3. Let's think back to your glory days as a middle-school scientist. What was the science fair project or other experiment you're most proud of?

4. Got a question for your fellow _flossers? The floor is yours. Have a great weekend!

* We may do a round-up of the best questions (complete with answers!) next week.

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
