One High School Class Every Senior Should Take

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. In an effort to churn out better-prepared graduates, you've been hired to develop one course that all high school seniors must take. The topic is up to you: personal finance, the U.S. Constitution, health and wellness, changing flat tires. What would your class be?

2. My first exposure to the internet came via those annoying AOL CD-ROMs, which arrived in our mailbox on a regular basis in the first half of the 1990s. When did you first go online?

3. The other day, an elderly woman whom I'd never met stopped her car to tell me that I have excellent posture. (OK, this really happened in 1996.) What's the strangest compliment you've received?

4. If you were putting on a conference for people in your profession, who would be your first choice for keynote speaker? And a follow-up: who's the best speaker you've seen at a conference? (The answers might be the same.)

While we're on the subject of fun games and great gift ideas (we're not?), let me slip in a quick plug for Split Decision, our brand new trivia game. If you use the code SPLITDECISION before checkout, you'll get 10% off. This is the only game I'll beg you to buy this year. Thanks for the support and 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!
