What Was Your Best/Worst Science Fair Project?

Original image

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. In Jessanne's editor's letter in the current issue of mental_floss magazine, she shared this picture of her groundbreaking botany research from the mid-80s. What was your best/worst science fair project?

2. In the back of our cabinet, safely stored for the least special occasions, I have four Atlanta Hawks/Atlanta Thrashers plastic cups acquired at a 2003 Bruce Springsteen concert at Philips Arena. I'm not sure how they've lasted this long—I've moved three times since I first brought them home, which means I keep actively deciding to take them with me. What's the strangest souvenir cup hiding in your cupboard?

3. From 1987-1990, I probably watched Back to the Future 200 times. It was the first VHS tape I ever bought. This obsessive viewing was put to good use 18 years later, when I dumped all that knowledge into this Back to the Future quiz. What one movie have you seen more than any other?

4. 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!
