What Was Your First Email Address?

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. Think back to your earliest Internet adventures. What email service did you use? If we're talking about the days of dial-up, how did you get online? Did your address communicate your interests, like blossomfan81@prodigy.net? 

2. They're bringing back Coach, which means anything from the '90s could potentially be resurrected. If you were on the Bring It Back committee, what would you support?

3. ...and what possible reboots would you do everything in your power to prevent?

4. Not so much a question but an announcement: the mental_floss Trivia Show is coming to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and VidCon! If you live near any of those places, bring some friends!

5. OK, now it's your turn. Got a question for the group? Ask it here. Have a great weekend!

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!
