Here is a collection of the posts that have generated the most comments, conversations, or emails during the life of this blog. The top three things that attract readers to my blog from internet searches are:
1. Pringles related searches
2. Chipotle burrito weight searches
3. Bacon weaving searches
For a season of life I tasted and ranked Pringles flavors. I wrote many posts about this. In lieu of linking all those posts I’ll just put up the master list . . .
Pringles Flavor Rankings (here are my rankings)
Posts relating to Chipotle burrito weights
I’ve wondered about the weights of Chipotle burritos, and this curiosity resulted in a few blog posts. My blog has been cited in numerous locations as an authority on Chipotle burrito weights, which amuses me. Internet searches relating to Chipotle burrito weight remain on the top referrers to my blog.

Posts relating to bacon
I have a reputation as a bacon-lover. I would argue that I have only an average appreciation for bacon, but I may have experimented with it more than the average person. Here are a few posts:

Posts on identifying cola brands by taste
I set up some taste tests with colas to determine if people could identify cola brands via small samples. I’ve received numerous emails regarding these posts (mostly from students wanting to stage tests or use my data for school experiments).

A tennis question
I had a few conversations with people about retirements (meaning quitting a match, not ending a career). I began to wonder what perceptions were accurate and which were tricks of the imagination.
That’s a start. I plan to add a section of my personal favorites, but that’s for later. . .
