Show Off Your Smarts!

Original image

Remember Will's old "Show Off Your Smarts!" feature? He'd throw out a topic and turn the microphone over to our brilliant readers. Sounds to me like a great way to kill time on a Friday. Let's revive "Show Off Your Smarts" and talk about amazing animal facts. I'll throw out a few:

  • A crocodile can digest a steel nail without chewing.
  • Sand tiger sharks attack each other in their mother's womb.
  • An octopus has three hearts.
  • Bees and dogs can smell fear.*

*I'm taking the kid in Jerry Maguire at his word here. Probably should have fact-checked. Your turn.

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!
