Friday Happy Hour

Original image

1. Way back in 2006, we held mental_floss Teacher Appreciation Week. One day, we'll do this again. But for now, if you had to celebrate one teacher, who would it be? Why?

Frank Langella's Nixon gives a dramatic speech toward the end, and it was as if our 37th President was directly addressing (and swearing at) the audience. A Frost/Nixon movie is in the works, but I can't imagine they'll be able to do that scene justice. Anyway, what single stage moment stands out for you?

3. Here's your chance to shamelessly plug a struggling business. I've already expressed my love for the Planet Smoothie in Roxbury, NJ. Free wireless, comfortable seating, liquid lunches and rarely a crowd. But that last part scares me. Name an establishment you're hoping to help save. And if you live within, say, 45 miles of Roxbury, fill up the tank and head on over.

4. Sounds like Seattle is going to lose the SuperSonics to Oklahoma City. Bill Simmons of ESPN recently ran an entire column of letters from their desolate fan base. Has your favorite team ever relocated on you? Did you give up on them?

5. In my mind, McDonald's offered roughly ten Chicken McNuggets dipping sauces. To make sure we didn't miss any, I contacted McD's media relations to verify. The verdict? Only three dipping sauces exist. But Terri Dann did such a great job with this banner, I can't let it go to waste. Take the full two minutes. Don't try to sneak the Chicken Selects dipping sauces in here. And ketchup doesn't count.

I guess I'm supposed to ask a question. Let's try this: What's your idea for a ridiculous 'name x in y minutes' quiz? Use this one as your guide.

6. I'm off next Friday. So I'd love the next Happy Hour to consist entirely of reader-submitted questions. What would you like to ask your fellow flossers? Before I head out, I'll pick the 5 or 6 best questions and set that to post Friday morning.

Have a great weekend!

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!
