Have You Ever Demanded a Refund at the Movies?

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. Everyone has a story about that important thing you lost in a massive computer disaster, usually moments before it was due. What's the worst thing you ever lost in a crash?

2. Our sister publication The Week has a great story today about ridiculous reasons moviegoers have asked for their money back. I don't think any of you would ask for a refund because The Artist didn't have dialogue, but have you ever been inclined to demand your money back at the movies? Did they give it to you?

3. Let's say, for reasons not entirely clear, you're now the President of the United States! What's your biggest concern about your pets moving into the White House?

4. What's the most embarrassing (in retrospect) poster or picture of a famous person you've ever hung on your wall?

[Have a great weekend! See all the previous Friday Happy Hour transcripts.]

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!
