Times You Fought the Law (and Won)

Original image

On Fridays, 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 don't wish you ill, but let's pretend you're couch-ridden with a nasty cold today. If you could pick any TV series to be running a marathon right now, which show would you pick? Even if you're not a big TV watcher, there's gotta be one show you'd be excited about. I'm going to cast my vote for Sports Night. I've seen all the episodes, so even in a NyQuil-induced haze I'll be able to follow.

2. A genie has granted you one wish, but there are strict parameters—mainly, your wish can only undo something you've already done, and it must be something you did in high school. On what would you like to hit the undo button (or control-Z—er, I mean command-Z—if you will)?

3. Last year my still-works-full-time-in-her-70s grandma got a citation for not shoveling her sidewalk. The kicker was, she had shoveled her sidewalk, but Mr. Plow canceled out her snow removal after she'd left for work that morning. She appealed the fine and actually won, saving me the trouble of inappropriately using my position here to launch an internet campaign against her ticket-happy local politicians. When's a time you fought the law—and won? (And for our purposes, "the law" can mean your employer, your principal, your parents, etc.)

4. What was the most challenging class you've taken? Was it worth it?

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!
