1. the only paper i read has three pages of funnies. i read the first page only, when i bother to do so. the funnies start on the right-hand page, so i would probably fold down the page on the left.
2. towards me, or away? depends on the way im holding the newspaper. no one talks to me when im reading, though, so ive never actually had a chance to try it out.
3. i love being a dork, and contemplating useless things. 2,000 scene points to thequestionclub.
