Can I Offer You Something To Read?

When I work from home, I feel like a combination of Dr. Jason Seaver from Growing Pains and Howard Hughes in The Aviator. Productive, happy, and slightly insane.

Less time commuting means more time to work. But it also means more time to clutter things up. Going through my closet this morning, a big box of magazines poured out. My sneakers protected my toes from a debilitating paper cut. Next time, I might not be so lucky.

So, I need to unload 30 copies of mental_floss. As it's in my best interest to increase subscriptions, we have a two birds/one stone situation. Plus, I have a drawer full of manila envelopes I'd also love to part with.


bailey-mental-floss.jpgHere's a chance to try before you buy (or in this case, subscribe). I will mail one (1) free issue to the first twenty people who leave a comment asking politely. I'll email you back to get your contact info. And the first ten (10) people who send me an instant message ('flossyjason' on AIM) will also receive a free magazine.

If you aren't one of the lucky 30, you can start filling your own closets with mental_floss by subscribing today. (If you have really big closets to clutter, you can order the Complete-as-it-Gets set.)

I look forward to hearing from you.

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!
