Culture Post #16: When is the most interesting period in history?

DINOSAUR TIMES! Is that an acceptable answer? Because it’s what I believe! If I’m allowed to say that, then to be more specific, the Late Cretaceous was off the chain. Big old dinos taking over North America and Asia. -Adam

Culture Post #15: What does your perfect breakfast look like?

My perfect breakfast is homemade bagels. I recently discovered how easy and fun it is to make bagels at home and they are 100x better than anything store bought or bakery bought ones. I love mine fresh out of the oven with butter and raisins, maybe a bit of cinnamon too. And of course, really good coffee on the side! -Joanna...

When Shadow returns to Peter in Homeward Bound. When Anna's geese fly with her airplane in Fly Away Home. -Johanna No movie scenes come to mind, but Jim and Pam will make me cry all the time.

Culture Post #10: What do you buy way more of than most people?

Protein doughnuts. I order them online and they’re expensive but super delicious. I buy a couple weeks worth at a time to save on shipping so at any time our freezer may be full of just doughnuts and doughnut accessories. They have excellent macros and make for a perfect daily snack. -Gina   I buy candles and batteries in bulk...

Culture Post #9: Who is the most interesting person you’ve met and talked with?

In 5th grade I won a contest to meet the Globetrotters and sit on the bench with them during a game. During halftime, myself and a few other kids got to go to the locker room to get pictures and autographs and talk to them. Unfortunately I was way too shy to really talk to them, but they were all super nice and funny and it was an...
