Ouch!!! My Brain Hurts!!!
So I take the paper, although I'm down to just Sundays at the Moment.  One of my favorite sections is the Puzzles: Crossword, Jumble, Sudoku, etc.  Studies Show (and yes I believe studies can show anything they want to) that doing these things keeps your brain sharp and may ward off alzheimer's and such.  (I Have Mad Cow so it doesn't really matter).  Anywho, I'm listing the 5 from my Sunday paper, and if you're paper has another, please list in the comments.  And let me know which ones you do.

Studies also show that smoking weed can help stave off Alzheimer's.  It can also make the Sunday comics more entertaining.  Just a thought.

It's good that you do things to stay mentally sharp! I haven't subscribed to the paper in years. I still read it to find out about local sports! Heck I can't even watch ESPN anymore! I have to have the Internet!

I use to get the Sunday News & Observer Paper and alot of the time it just pilled up and Id end up recylcing it, so I quite subscribing a few years back.. Now I just catch it on the table at work and do the puzzles unless someone beats me to it! I like the WORD JUMBLE and the CROSSWORD PUZZLE the best!

#15 | 1827 days ago

Yeah I used to get the paper ... first thing was the comics... then the sports.... then i would try to do the cross words i would get about half of the across and part of the down and realize that i messed up somewhere ...

But i like the internet better for my news.. because if the news changes i can see it instantly instead of waiting until tomorrow... plus i too would like to help the environment... i try to recycle but the bottles are getting heavier in the trash...

I am always exercising my brain. Got to keep it sharp for the kids.

I find commenting on this site really gives my brain a good work out. You guys leave so many good comments to comment off of. My brain simply loves it.

I don't do the paper (the only thing I'd get it for is the sports section anyway, and .. well...), but I love puzzles. I have a DS and I get all the brain games for it - Crosswords, anything with sudoku...I have that on my phone too, Brain Age, Big Brain Academy, etc. I get other games too but I find I play the puzzle games the most; especially Sudoku.

I enjoy Sudoku games, if my kids don't beat me to it.   I try to do some of the crosswords, but sometimes I'm lucky if I can get 5 answers entered in.  Anything I can to try to keep what's left of my brain intact.

I'm a brainteaser geek!  I do them online, in magazines, newspaper.  I'm obsessed with Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit, and any other trivia or puzzle or riddle, including crosswords and Sudoku. 

My God, I really DO need to get out more.

Buying a Newspaper keeps people working, and it is much cheaper than toilet paper.....
