What's Your All-Time Favorite Amazing Fact?

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. Besides the thing about John Tyler's grandsons still being alive, my favorite fact is that the 3 Musketeers was originally three smaller bars (vanilla, strawberry, chocolate). A couple years ago we tried to start a movement to bring it back, but that didn't go anywhere. And now I'm hungry. While I go rummage around for a candy bar, you tell us about your all-time favorite fact.

2. If you had to add a non-traditional pet to your life — no cats, dogs, fish, birds, rabbits, hamsters, or anything you've ever owned before — what would you choose, and what would you name it?

3. What is the one niche subject you believe you know more about than anyone else reading this post?

Bonus! If you live in Birmingham, Ala., or Northern New Jersey and "website user testing" sounds like a blast, we want to speak to you! Just leave a note in your comment that you might be interested or email me and we may be in touch.

[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!
