It’s only 26 seconds long, but I’ve laughing for much longer.
I just showed this to Mackenzie and she had a mild asthma attack from laughter.
Do you ever just sit around on youtube watching multiple live versions of the same song? I’ve spent a lot of my life doing that.

I am far from a professional Photoshop, but I always get asked by my friends to make things, and I’m pretty proud of this banner I made for a facebook event for our friend Mike coming to visit.
Science, Mr. White
I’m a HUGE Jeopardy fan (shut up) and I’ve loved watching Arthur Chu kick the game’s ass. He’s absolutely on the mark about all this stuff.
7. That quote you always say/reference that no one seems to realize is a quote and you’re never really sure if you should explain that or not.
I’m blessed to have friends who mostly consume the same things I do, so this doesn’t happen all that often. Although, I often say “Don’t call it that” when someone uses a slang term for something that I dislike, and I am quoting Michael Bluth from the episode where everyone is calling Orange County “The OC”. Also, if I mis-speak and am corrected I routinely quote Shawn Spencer from Psych in saying “I’ve heard it both ways”.
I never bother trying to explain either of those. They just flow in the conversation.
28. Favorite natural phenomena?
I already covered this one pretty heavily last night. Alternate answer: I like the way people smell, and how people you care about always have a smell you like. That’s cool.
35. Tell a story you don’t normally tell people, but don’t necessarily keep secret either.
I don’t normally tell people anything, so there are lots of options here I guess, but yet I’m kinda drawing a blank.
…okay, here we go.
When I was like 13 or 14 I went on a youth group trip to Six Flags in Atlanta, and it was my first time at a real amusement park, so my friend and I rode this roller coaster, The Great American Scream Machine, and afterward we were both too scared to ride any more. So since we were buddied up anyway, we kinda kept away from any of the other groups, and when asked, we would lie to our friends about all our experiences riding the other roller coasters and how much fun we had been having.
This went well until we were talking to these two cute girls, and they were like “Oh yeah? You rode that one, well would you ride with us, because we’re kinda scared to of it” or something to that effect. Well, they were cute, and we couldn’t really back out at that point could we. So we got on this roller coaster, The Mindbender, and much to our surprise it was really fucking fun. After that we couldn’t get enough of riding roller coasters, and ran around the park trying to make up for lost time and ride as many as we could. We eventually rode every one at the park, and I became obsessed with them.
Like seriously, roller coasters are one of my favorite things ever now. What was I ever thinking?
I see now that those tabs down there are impossible to see. Here’s a one you can embiggen.
Oh god. This is an impossible question for me. I love everything about nature. I’m 30 and I am still like “whoa! That’s so cool” when I leave for work in the morning and everything is covered in dew. …I mean sure, the car windows covered in ice is annoying, but the process that put it there is so cool to me. And then it just melts.
I dunno, like, these are just the kind of things that I am always thinking about. I think it’s cool that things grow, especially plants that grow so fast. It’s nuts. Cutting the grass is annoying, but it also blows me away how much it grows in just a week. (also I don’t even have a lawn anymore, so fuck cutting grass).
I’m gonna lead off with my cop-out answer (which is also true) and say that nature itself is my favorite natural phenomena. It’s all so cool, weather, and wind and tides. Even the bad stuff is so fascinating. Gravity is nuts when you think about it. We all just stay on the ground. Fucking centrifugal force, man.
Is this the kind of answer this question was looking for? If I had to go with one thing, I really fucking love thunderstorms. They are so soothing to me. Okay. thunderstorms. final answer.
Sorry for the ramble, but I’m going with it.
