@lovelettersinhell I was at the house where he was born, which is now a museum, sadly closed that day. He has since moved to Boston.

On All Our Secret Prisons

@Niko Bellic In the same town, I was outside Elie Wiesel's house when a man with no legs came scooting down the street on his knuckles, yelling incessantly in a high-pitched voice, presumably at me. I told my wife to get in the goddamned car because we were getting out of there. I get the feeling the country was dreamed up by Fellini.

@Niko Bellic Yeah, I got that. It doesn't make Romania any less grim.

On All Our Secret Prisons

I was in a town called Sighetu once, and they have The Museum of Arrested Thought, a torture museum, which I didn't go in. It's such a hopelessly grim country that I felt like I couldn't take it. The fact that there are secret prisons there doesn't surprise me.

"This was a fine concert. Mr. Adams has no knowledge of Pete Segar or his music."

To the older fans, it probably doesn't matter who's up there on stage.

On 11 Completely Scientific, Not At All Dubious Diets From Our Recent Past

I like the beginning of the wikipedia page for Ayds: "Not to be confused with AIDS." SRSLY.

On How To Not Die In A Plane Crash

People who say that air travel is safer than car travel fail to consider that cars don't generally fall from the sky 30,000 feet and land in a hellish fireball.

Thinking about the show in terms of real-world politics makes the show way more fun!

On Trump Products Unhappy-Making

Maybe don't buy anything *especially* if it has Trump in the name.
