1. Who's the greater genius: Einstein or Shakespeare? My dad loves this question.

2. If you could learn any skill what would it be and why?

3. What are the lyrics to "Fresh Philly"?

1) Shakespeare. Einstein wasn't that big a genius. He just looked at things differently. People like Planck, Bohr, and Tesla: They were geniuses.

For its worth, I'd argue that Shakespeare wasn't that big a genius either. A creative talent and a masterful command of language to be sure.

2) Part of me says movie production, but I know that I already know a lot about that. I'd just want the excuse and story to do it.

Another part of me says accounting, but that's easy. A lot of CS actually came from accounting (I kid you not).

So then, I think what I would want to learn would be something extremely practical like crafting with wood and metal. I distrust my hands for tasks requiring delicacy. I further distrust my brain for tasks requiring creativity.

3) You suck. A lot. Actually you don't suck _nearly_ as much as relsqui. Let it be known in any case that you suck.

It makes me uncomfortable to hear it and I was far too drunk and far not caring enough to remember the lyrics at the time (Keep in mind, this was entirely freestyle with no more preparation than Wes's urging when I stumbled back).

So, find out for yourself.
