Name Our New Tiny Conference Room

Original image

Welcome to our first Happy Hour of 2015! On Fridays, we ask a bunch 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. We recently converted a closet into a tiny conference room. We've been calling it "The Closet" (or "The Orange Closet") but we really should come up with something better. Any brilliant ideas? If we use your name for The Closet, I'll send you the mental_floss t-shirt of your choosing.

2. If you were appointed Grammar Czar and given the ability to make or change accepted grammar policies, what would be your first big move? Conversely, what existing rule would you want to enforce?

3. If you tell other people on the Internet your resolutions, you're more likely to keep them. OK, I have no idea if that's true but I need a third question so humor me. I've made three resolutions for 2015: exercise four times a week (up from zero times a week), eat no donuts (down from multiple donuts), and keep my car clean (it was embarrassing). So far so good. How about you?

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

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!
