How Long Have You Known Your Oldest Friend?

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. Reader Allyson challenged us to find the weirdest Wikipedia page out there, and I'm passing the buck to you. Let's define "weirdest" as "topic you're most surprised has a Wikipedia page," with extra points for unnecessary length.

2. How long have you known your oldest friend? Someone you regularly see or speak to.
Have you stayed close all these years? How'd you first meet?

3a. I have no idea whether this question will generate fascinating responses or blank stares. What's a book you wish you'd read in college? It should be a book that had an impact on you later in life—and presumably having that knowledge earlier would have been a good thing. I realize this question leaves out anyone college age or younger. So for those lucky people, 3b. What are you up to this weekend?

4. Silly, self-serving, just-because-I'm-curious question of the week: Do you currently have a pencil sharpener in your house? I ask because I realized this week I do not, which when combined with a stockpile of unsharpened pencils became an issue.

Enjoy the 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!
