I’ve been yammering on this blog for an awful long time now. I figure, maybe it’s your chance to talk.
So here’s the deal: between now and the end of the month, ask me absolutely anything you want! I will answer every single question I get. (Limit one per customer. Ahem.)
I’ve done this once before, and y’all asked plenty of questions. We got a question on programming, a question on Star Trek, a question about how I met my wife, and even a question about questions.
This time, as before, the sky is the limit. What am I saying? The multiverse is the limit, where the multiverse is defined as everything that is a thing and/or not a thing. Ask me about the new Hobbit movie, or artificial intelligence, or my silver 2006 base-model four-cylinder Honda Accord, or the Wheel of Time and its last book which comes out January 8, or the relationship between pi and Euler’s number, or wombats, or…
You get the picture.
Leave your questions right here in the comments section of this post. The deadline is November 30.
My life is an open book. What do you want to know?
Okay Brian, I know you’re the right person to ask this question:
“Are we living in a computer simulation?”
Some potential source material and my inspiration for the question:
Wake up, Ben. The Matrix has you.
Love it. 🙂 Thanks for a great question!
Let’s give you an all encompassing question.
“Where do you see the United States in 20 years?”
Will it still be a world superpower? Or more like the British empire past its prime with waning power over the rest of the world?
Where do you see the US citizens? Happy? Prosperous? are we a Plutocracy? an Oligarchy? how’s the wage gap? how’s our civil rights record looking?
Feel free to include any an all ideas that you have on the future, the previous were just suggestions and not mandates.
Excellent question! Thanks, Zeev. I’ll have to think hard about this one.
The more of these questions I get, the more I think each one deserves its own separate post in response. It’d be hard to do justice to them otherwise.
Love it. My question is:
What is the one question you wouldn’t answer honestly, no matter what?
Very meta. 🙂 Another great question. Thanks, Jo. I’m looking forward to answering this one.
A few hours after midnight… I hope it’s not too late!
We’re reading Much Ado About Nothing in English class… and I have homework. Mind, uh, helping?
“Read Dogberry’s speaking parts in Act II, scene iii and answer: How does he mess up or confuse his words and what effect does it have on the play and what does it reveal about his character?”
I can answer that one right now: I have no idea. 🙂 Been forever since I read the play.
Well, looks like I have to do my own homework. Oh well, looking forward to seeing your answers for the other questions!
Through what lens do you craft your answers?
Not sure what you mean by this…I can answer the question as-is if you like, but you might get better results if you clarify what you’re asking.
