The Oldest Thing You Own: In Pictures

Original image

On Tuesday, Higgins asked you to send us pictures of the oldest thing you own. Today, I'm begging.

We're trying to get a photo gallery feature off the ground. Since there was such a tremendous response to Higgins' original "What's the oldest thing you own?" entry, we figured that was a good place to start. So, we'd be forever grateful if you'd snap a picture of your oldest possession and send it our way. To submit your photos, send them via email to flossypics@gmail.com. Include your name (first name, full name, nickname, fake name you've always wanted to try — your choice), location, and a brief description. Then stay tuned for the gallery!

Now on to the weekly questions.

1) Got any other ideas for photo-submission topics? (If we ever use your idea, we'll send you a free t-shirt.)

2) What class best prepared you for your career?

3) With which fictional character -- literature, movies, TV, comic books, etc. -- do you have the most in common?

4) What's a food you wish you knew more about? (This is shameless research for our still-unnamed food column that starts next week.)

5) Has anyone you know ever appeared on a reality show? Were they portrayed fairly?

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!
