On Fridays, we 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. I’m at SXSW, and I’ve already been to both Salt Lick—where I indulged in the family style, all-you-can-eat BBQ platter—and Torchy’s Tacos, where I got the tacos at the top of this post. And I'm just getting started! In honor of my Austin food tour, what's the best barbecue you've ever eaten?

2. This American Life just put up a great episode about coincidences. Give it a listen, and then tell us: What’s the craziest coincidence that’s ever happened to you?

3. There has been a lot of talk recently about building better helmets that can protect athletes from concussions and other serious head injuries (although some think creating a concussion-proof helmet is impossible). But an incident Tuesday night—in which New York Rangers’ defenseman Marc Staal took a hockey puck to the eye area—spurred another debate: Should the NHL require players to wear visors? As a hockey lover (and a Rangers fan), I say yes—but what do you guys think?

4. Your turn! If you’ve got a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away. 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!
