About

Ah, I see that you want to learn about something. If you ask the question, I’ll give it my best effort.

Question: Who are you and why are doing this “Snippet-a-day” thing?

Answer: I don’t know; it sounded like a good idea when I started but now that you mention it, maybe not.

Q: Why didn’t you tell me who you are?

A: Sorry, but I don’t feel like answering that question right now. Maybe later.

Q: How old are you?

A: I don’t give out that information.

Q: What’s your favorite color sock?

A: What a silly question. I’ve never thought about it before, so I have no answer.

Q: What’s your favorite movie?

A: I lack sufficient data to be able to answer that question.

Q: What’s your favorite book?

A: Too many to be able to answer that question effectively. Look, I don’t have all day and answering that would take at least three days.

Q: Did the world end in 2012?

A: Probably most people, seeing that January 1, 2013 has already passed, might consider this an easy question to answer. But that lazy approach, to quote the Standup Economist out of context, will never get you a tenure-track position at Harvard. The correct answer is that if we knew the answer to that question, the Great Depression would never have happened.

Q: What’s your favorite number?

A: Finally! A reasonable question! The number is e^i*pi.

Q: Which pedagogical method for teaching basic reading do you favor?

A: I’m agnostic as to the answer to that question.

Q: Are you normally this tired and dull?

A: No, I’m usually much worse.

Q: Oh.
