What Was Your Most Memorable Celebrity Encounter?

Original image

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 my third birthday, my dad spotted Mickey Mantle at the Peoria Airport and asked if he'd shake my hand. He said something like, "I bet he wishes I was Mickey Mouse!" I've yet to top that, though I have seen Dr. Ruth on two occasions (we did not speak). What's your best/worst story of meeting someone famous?

2. As a child, what terrified you most? Little Juliet was not a fan of Tigger during our recent trip to Disney World. I've always been pretty scared of snakes, to the point that Erin McCarthy knows she's editing any snake-related stories that come in.

3. Is there something you've been wondering, but not enough to actually look it up? Do you have any questions we could answer in our Big Questions series?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for the group, ask it here. And if you're in a voting mood, we're up for a Webby Award and could really use your help. You can vote for mental_floss here. I'd really like to tell my relatives we beat The New Yorker in something. Thanks everybody! Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!

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!
