What was your worst attempt at hitting on someone that actually worked?

Lets say I had a great move or line.  Let’s say it’s so great it helped me bag the love of my life.  Now why I would give that away?

What is the most shitty thing about becoming an adult?

The in-escapability of work.  You have to work.  Always, for the rest of your life.  It’s not that I don’t like work, or that I am looking for a way out.  Sometimes, though, it just feels like a trap.

Especially since I have an awesome life.  Great job, great home, great car.  Truly, I live the American dream.  All that came from work, and to keep it means I will work every day for the rest of my life.

However, all of this has taught me the value of work.  I used to work as a fraud investigator.  You would be amazed how hard people work to not work.  Meaning, I watching criminals who were incredibly smart and worked incredibly hard to work around the social contract to make money… to never have to ‘work’.  Yet, these people are working crazy hard… AND having to look over their shoulders and will eventually lose it all.  If these guys worked half as hard at a legitimate job, they could have been very successful.

Conan and Andy have a bit: What is a sentence never spoken before.  What could you contribute?

Well, Apple, you sure made that process easy and transparent

You just won $200 million in the lottery.  Now what?

Lawyer up.

What’s an irrational fear you’ve had since childhood that you still haven’t grown out of as an adult?

I think all my fears are rational.  Well, spiders.  I fear and dislike spiders more than is probably necessary.

What’s something you have an unreasonable fear of?

 spiders.  I have major issues with spiders.  Oh, and don’t give me that shit about how great they are for the environment.  If you do, I am going to collect all the black widows in my basement well windows and deliver them to your house… to benefit your ecosystem.

    these are legitimate fears, though.  In high school, I had a van that got infested and I had to bug bomb it.  It was an arachno-holocaust.  Also, remember the movie ‘Arachanaphobia’?  For some dumb reason, I saw it in the theater.  When I got out to my car, there was a spider climbing up my door.  Not cool.

What’s something you have an unreasonable fondness for?

guitars and pick up trucks.  My favorite things.  Well, that and boobies.  But, I think we can agree that boobies are not an unreasonable fondness.

 What’s something you have an unreasonable disliking for?

           raisins, and your music collection.

Who’s most likely to bring out the unreasonable in you?


Who’s the least unreasonable person you know?

that question is worded horribly.  Are you trying to ask ‘who is the most reasonable person you know’?  Let’s assume that is the case.  Simple, my mom.  She taught me a suberb means of reasoning, and understanding.  Always try and see the other side.  Look at how the other guy probably sees his side of the argument.  Understanding that will help you choose your battles more wisely.
