When Do You Un-Friend Someone?

Original image

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I've just been told it's Delete-A-Friend Week (on Facebook). When do you decide to give someone the boot? Have you ever been confronted by that person later, either online or in person?

2. I'm working on a new regular feature called Three Books I Loved as a Child, where famous (or interesting) people will write about...well, you can probably figure it out from the title. Who should we (try to) get to contribute?

3. Last week we talked about companies we're boycotting. Reader Christi had a good idea for a follow-up: to which companies have you pledged your lifetime loyalty?

4. I'm going to be going away for a while after my wife gives birth (due date: September 14th). While I'm gone, I'd love to use some of your questions to keep our Friday Happy Hour fun going. So leave a question and I'll use some of the best in the coming weeks. Thanks guys!

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!
