We should all be as proud of our work as Fredric J. Baur, who designed the Pringles can. When he died in 2008, his kids honored his request to be buried in one of the containers he designed.
Other random facts about Pringles from Wikipedia:
- Pringles have less than 50% potato content and are mostly made up of wheat.
- Procter & Gamble chose the “Pringles” name from a Cincinnati telephone book, having been inspired by the street name of Pringle Drive in Finneytown, Ohio, simply due to its pleasing sound.
- They were originally known as “Pringles Newfangled Potato Chips,” but since they’re not really chips of potatoes, the FDA said they could only use the word “chip” in their product name within the following phrase: “potato chips made from dried potatoes.”

Maradona is so popular here that this impersonator gets more attention than real soccer players in the US
I paid him a few pesos to take this picture. (Info on the real Maradona.)
I really love watching soccer in Argentina. I wonder if I’ll be as excited when I get back home. Vamos Argentina!
These 4 Gu packets that I bought for my marathon cost as much as that delicious steak that I had after my marathon!
4 Gus or 1 steak cost 5o Argentine pesos, roughly $13 US.
And you can get steak cheaper, but the big issue for me here is that everything imported is crazy expensive. The Gu was pretty reasonable compared to the price of electronics.
