On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. On The B.S. Report this week, Bill Simmons and Chuck Klosterman tried to come up with the weirdest historical events of the last 50 years. They didn't get very far: the kidnapping of Patty Hearst? That Catcher in the Rye was linked to both Lennon's murderer and the man who shot Reagan? Flight 370? Let's come up with our own list. March 21, 1964 to present. Go!

2. What word do you always spell wrong?

3. What's your best story about sitting next to someone great (or someone terrible) on an airplane?

4. Your turn. Got a question for the group? Ask it here. Have a great weekend!

Note: That image was near the top of a search for "weird." The description is "Scary hungry female demon crawling out of the floor."

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!
