the friday 5! my old friend!

I've been going through my archives lately and found my old amigo, the friday 5, so here goes:

  • On March 6, 1869, Dmitri Mendeleev presented the first Periodic Table of the Elements to the Russian Chemical Society. What memories do you have of your high-school chemistry course?
    My high school chemistry course sucked, therefor I will tell you about the time me and Phug started making up the Periodic Table of Civil Rights Figures. Ah, who could forget good old caesarchavezium?

  • On March 6, 1899, the Bayer company registered aspirin as a trademark. When did you last take medication for pain?
    It's been a while, actually... I think like 2 weeks. WOW. That's just bizarre, and I think it's possibly because I'm awesome.

  • On March 6, 1853, Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La Traviata premiered in Venice. How do you feel about opera?
    I enjoy opera, but I kind of have to be in the mood for it. Actually, I have a video of La Traviata that I taped off of PBS... hmmmm...

  • On March 6, 1947, American film director Rob Reiner (Meathead!) was born. Which of these Reiner-directed films have you seen, and what do you think of them?
    The Bucket List (2007)
    Rumor Has It… (2005)
    Alex & Emma (2003)
    The Story of Us (1999)
    Ghosts of Mississippi (1996)
    The American President (1995)
    North (1994)
    A Few Good Men (1992)
    Misery (1990)
    When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
    The Princess Bride (1987)
    Stand by Me (1986)
    The Sure Thing (1985)
    This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
    wow... I guess I kind of suck.
  • On March 6, 1972, American basketball-player Shaquille O’Neal was born. How do you feel about basketball?
    Normally sort of indifferent... I like to go see sports live, though, even if it means hearing my mom threaten to inflict bodily injury on a high school kid for rooting for the opposing team whilst seated on our side.
