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. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Daniel Plainview.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

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.

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.

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.
