One of the worst things about the Friday 5 hack last winter (and temporary loss of 10+ years’ worth of questions) is that I can no longer search the archives in order not to repeat any.  It’s been slowing me down each week as I try to come up with questions I’m sure I haven’t asked.

This week, I’m just going to ask five questions whose answers I’m very interested in, even if it’s quite likely I’ve asked them before.  Perhaps people’s answers have changed!

  1. What is the story behind one of your scars?
  2. What’s an example of your being pretty much like everyone else?
  3. What’s an example of your being pretty much unlike everyone else?
  4. Of websites you look at daily (or almost daily), which have you been paying attention to longest?
  5. What’s something you wish a smartphone was capable of?

Thanks for participating, and have a peaceful weekend!

Friday 5 for October 5: A Garbage Heap of Questions

Vegan Fivers are encouraged not to be offended by this quote from a podcast I really like.

So, a vegan diet will be short on some nutrients like Vitamin B12, but for many vegans, supplements work and they can be totally fine.  Actually, vegans can be even better than fine.  Researchers in the U.S. have been tracking a large group of vegans, also called a smug of vegans, since the early 2000s.

Hilarious, right?  This week’s questions are inspired by this moment of hilarity.  If you’re missing the joke, it’s a takeoff on a murder of crows or a pack of wolves or an ostentation of peacocks.

I have a feeling this is going to be an unpopular set of questions, but one never knows unless one tries!

  1. What should be the collective name for accountants?
  2. What should be the collective name for cafe baristas?
  3. What should be the collective name for tattoo artists?
  4. What should be the collective name for people who vape?
  5. What should be the collective name for people in your profession or hobby?

Thanks for participating, and have a glorious weekend!
