Have You Ever Been Mistaken for Someone Else?

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. I'm currently on paternity leave, so this week's questions come courtesy of our readers.

1. Today's first question was submitted by KMK: If you could be any age a second time around, what age would you pick?

2. MetalRose asks, Have you ever been mistaken for someone else—famous or not—with funny or disastrous results?

3. Here's one inspired by a Davidoff Cool Water (perfume) ping pong paddle. What’s the weirdest/most nonsensical marketing piece you’ve ever seen? (Thanks, Rachel!)

4. From Jon: What semi-obscure book would you love to see made into a movie?

5. And we'll wrap things up with a question from Gordon Daily: If you were facing a hurricane, flood or some other disaster, and only had time to save one item from your home, what would it be?

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!
