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!
