I used to read the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists pretty regularly growing up (my local library carried it) but it's been a lot of years since I've looked at it. *

The only thing that sticks in my memory bank about growing up was playing sports and chasing girls :)

Oh, I did plenty of that (though the sports were likely different than Americans) but I also read pretty widely and voraciously. You also got to meet some rather interesting girls by being "intellectual". I just don't have the time for as much reading anymore though I am still trying to read at least one non-work related book every month.
