What’s the Strangest Thing Someone Could Learn About You via Google?

Original image

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. As we head into the holiday weekend, I've plucked a few topics from the archives. Happy Easter!

1. What’s the strangest thing someone could learn about you through Googling? (And no, you don’t have to send the link.)

2. Let's talk about your dream job. Forget about educational requirements or your lack of relevant experience. For reasons not entirely clear, you've been granted the privilege of choosing whatever job you'd like. Don't waste this opportunity with vagueness, or punt if you really love your current job.

3. If you could have been born in any year and grow up in that era, which year would you choose? Why? I think I’d stick with 1979. I’m not sure I’m employable in the pre-internet world, and I certainly wouldn’t have lasted in some of my old temp jobs without the web. Plus I wasn’t tethered to a computer my whole childhood, which helped me develop an arsenal of nasty Wiffle Ball pitches.

4. A family friend was in Egypt a few years back. While gazing at the pyramids, something else astonishing wandered into view—someone with whom he attended high school. They hadn’t seen each other in over twenty years. I’m always fascinated by these kinds of stories, probably because my own pale in comparison. I once ran into a (New Jersey) high school friend at a McDonald’s in North Myrtle Beach. Good times. What’s the strangest place you’ve unexpectedly run into an old friend?

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!
