Where Were You 20 Years Ago Today?

On Fridays I post a series of questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Usually it's much earlier in the day. Answer one question, answer all, reply to someone else. On to this week's topics of discussion!

1. Some dates carry broad significance, and everyone remembers exactly what they were doing. February 1, 1993, is not among them. But think back to this date (ish) in 1993. What was going on in your life? (If you were not yet born, try 10 years ago instead.)

2. If you could give your 1993 self three words of advice, what would you say?

3. Let's pretend your current town or city was awarded a minor league baseball team, and you were put in charge of the nickname. What would you call it? If you don't love where you live, you could really stick it to the region.

4. What was your favorite season of your all-time favorite TV series?

5. I reserve this last spot for your own questions. Want to ask something of your fellow _flossers? The floor is yours!

Oh, and that photo? That was 20 years ago today. From Getty Images: "A young couple in an anti-Le Pen demonstration in Paris have their minds on each other rather than the demonstration, February 1, 1993."

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!
