Questions From the Audience

Original image

bach-party2.jpgI'm off today, en route to Boston for a low-key bachelor party. And I'm not just saying "low-key" because the groom-to-be is marrying one of our researchers, or because my pregnant wife is reading.

While I'm searching for a scalper with Bruins or Celtics tickets, you can be answering some of these questions, which were submitted last week by readers in this space.

1) Do you have season tickets (or luxury box access) for either the Bruins or Celtics?

[OK, on to the real questions...]

1) Aside from a McNugget, what is the strangest food you have eaten? [Asked by Florida]

2) How did you first hear about mental_floss? [Asked by Lebetho]

3) What's your favorite landmark or roadside attraction in your town/city? [Asked by Colin]

4) What cartoons remind you of your childhood? [Asked by Heather]

5) What's the most jarring transition in your iTunes list? I have a series of orchestral selections that roll over into Credence Clearwater Revival when I'm going alphabetical. [Asked by Roger]

6) What are your least favorite house chores and why? [Asked by Cyndi]

7) Did your parents particularly affect where you are today? If so, how? [Asked by Allison]

8) If you were in a rock band, what would the name of your band be? [Asked by Janel]

9) Best/worst bachelor/bachelorette party experience? [I had to get one in there. 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!
