Things Nobody Likes But You

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. Last week, we discussed things everybody liked except you. How about the opposite? Among your friends and family, what short-lived TV series, style of clothing, book, day of the week, vacation destination (or whatever) are you seemingly alone in liking? Perhaps you'll find someone else here who shares your lack of disdain!

2. Like Larry David, I was a history major. (“You never know when you might run into a discussion of the Franco-Prussian War,” he's joked.) What was/is your college major? If you're out of school, have you been able to put it to use? If you could do it all over again, would you choose something else?


3. Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller's Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN comes out next week. It's an oral history that lasts 784 pages from the guys who brought us the excellent oral history of Saturday Night Live. Let's say Shales and Miller came to you looking for advice on their next project. What topic would hold your attention for 800 pages of interviews?


4. We're not due for another "What are you reading?" question until next week, but let's use a variation of that question—what's a great website you only recently discovered?

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!
