What's the Scariest Book You've Ever Read?


On Fridays, I ask a series of questions to get a conversation going in the comments. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. I'm stealing this first one from Jamie Spatola, who runs our satellite office in North Carolina. What's the scariest book you've read? Maybe it's a novel that totally freaked you out, or something non-fiction that taught you things you wish you didn't know.

2. Have you ever encountered a product that's actually too effective? We just bought this mouthwash that promises to be long-lasting, and I swish it around before leaving the house in the morning. But the minty freshness is still lingering mid-day, messing with my taste buds, ruining lunch. It's too powerful!

3. You have the power to improve one game show, but only one. And you can only make one change to the show. What change would you make?

4. Your turn! Got a question for your fellow _flossers? Ask it here! Enjoy the long weekend! We'll try to schedule a bunch of stories in advance, so please stop by if you're bored!

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!
