Why Can't You Be President?

I would never survive a presidential campaign.

vinick.jpgMy oration lacks charisma. I'm not a fan of business travel. My resume is light on foreign policy experience, unless you count a spring break excursion to Port Lucaya and one weekend in Montreal. Plus someone, somewhere, has pictures from both trips.

(Also, I'm not yet 35.)

According to Article II of the U.S. Constitution, "No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States."

But the Founding Fathers failed to mention other disqualifications, like having incriminating photos tied to a Google Image Search of your name (so far, I'm clear) or suggestive comments on your Facebook Wall (no problem).

So the first question in today's Friday Happy Hour: what in your past disqualifies you for the presidency?

Keep reading for four more.

2) What's the strangest place you've been to that offers free wireless internet service?

3) What's a movie you expected to love, but hated?

4) What's a TV show you expected to hate, but loved?

5) How does one dispose of paint cans? (I realize this isn't very interesting, but I have a basement full of mostly empty paint cans I'd love to eliminate. Any advice?)

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!
