What Was Your Favorite Magazine Growing Up?

Original image

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. What was your favorite magazine as a kid? Your tastes obviously changed as you kept growing, so feel free to give a few answers for various ages.

2. The Pringles brand was purchased by Kellogg this week for $2.7 billion, which reminds me of the time the guy who invented the Pringles can had his ashes buried in one. Spreading a lost loved one’s ashes across an exotic or poignant locale is something I’ve only ever seen in movies. I assume this really happens — it's either the inspiration for all the big screen ash-spreading, or in response to it. Anyone have a (true) story about scattering a person’s ashes somewhere special?

3. Maggie Ryan Sandford is working on a story about the Edison/Tesla relationship for next week. What other historical pairings would you like to read more about?

4. What's the silliest thing that scares your pet? I've asked this one before, but perhaps you've discovered a new weird fear. I stand by my previous answer: Bailey still hates the Wiimote.

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!
