A. So, so, so, so, so, so, so awesome.
A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.
A. A strong, healthy body, all the resources I need to do the things I want, and good people to do them with.
A. Giant sea monsters lurking under me while I'm swimming. Also, bees.
A. On a beautiful mountaintop with a beautiful woman in my beautiful 1976 GMC motorhome.
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.
A. It's easy for me to find fault with most real people generally regarded as admirable, so....Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
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.
A. See my "motto and maxim" answer. Regret is pointless. I never do anything without first deciding to do it based on facts and feelings, and if it doesn't work out how I hoped, oh well, there's another notch on my experience belt.
A. The ability to become invisible and/or non-corporeal at will. Oh, you mean like a real actual talent? I'd like to be able to play a guitar without sawing chunks out of it and rearranging the strings.
A. Transforming myself from the sour, cynical pessimist I was throughout my teens into someone with a lust for life and hope for the future.
A. I think too much. Sometimes it's a struggle to live in the moment. Also, my cheeks get really red when I drink.
A. I've been told my beard is really soft.
A. ANY person or ANY thing?? That's got to be the most general question that's even possible to ask. But....probably a T-Rex.
A. Daniel Plainview.
A. Daniel Plainview.
A. Eve, of Adam and Eve. And I would say, "Hey. Hey! Put it down. Put it down...and walk away. Good girl."
A. Assuming you mean occupation as in an activity, not a job, I'd have to say drinking good beer with good people is hard to beat.
A. Well, it used to be"author" but now that I've landed that one...I dunno, maybe running a school for kids that have superpowers due to bizarre genetic mutations? Oh and also I'd have superpowers too.
A. Strength, truthfulness, and curiosity.
A. The 10-item Thali at Poppy in Seattle. Trick answer! It's 10 things in one!
A. I absolutely can't answer this question. My favorite songs change every year. One that has consistently moved me for a long time, though, is "Let Down" by Radiohead.
