My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Gosh, so many to choose from. I empathize with Tesla a lot, because he had a lot of ideas to revolutionize the world, but nobody wanted to hear about it, and he eventually got destroyed by Edison, the living embodiment of everything wrong with American culture. I don't know how to transmit electricity wirelessly or anything, but I have a lot of ideas that run contrary to public consensus, which I am always taking crap for.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I've been told my beard is really soft.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Eve, of Adam and Eve. And I would say, "Hey. Hey! Put it down. Put it down...and walk away. Good girl."

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I say "arbitrary" way too much these days. I guess I'm just noticing how many things we take for granted as fact have no real basis in reality. They're just...arbitrarily decided.
