Friday Happy Hour

Before I get to this week's random questions, Office Hours are back on. My screen name is flossyjason.

1. I watch The McLaughlin Group religiously. My favorite part is the 'Predictions' segment, especially when John picks a random issue on which to wager ("The U.S. will open a full-scale operational air and naval base in Australia!") Dan Berger used to keep track of all these predictions, but it looks like he has given up. Bummer. So, what show do you watch that none of your friends do?

2. On Wednesday, Chris Higgins introduced us to The Blog Readability Test. Lots of readers commented about the score of their own sites. I'm swinging open the door to invite your most shameless self-promotion. Do you have a web presence? What's your site/blog/company all about? Add your URL in the field marked 'Website' (after Name and Email).

3. What's the oddest job title you've ever heard?

4. I really enjoyed my trip to Birmingham, and I have lots of friends who think I should move there. One selling point: the bars are open until 4am. Now, I didn't make it remotely close to 4am. But still, that sounds appealing. If you had to boil the place you live down to one fact to convince a friend to move there, what would that fact be?

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!
