If a guy is skilled at anything that’s attractive. There’s something very primal about that and sure it can be as simple as figuring out the tip quickly. It’s really cool when a guy tips 20 percent quickly and effortlessly so that when the check comes he opens it and signs his name and done.
All I want to do is change the world.
I’m fascinated by failure and I’m fascinated by finality. Shakespeare’s historical plays are more universal than his comedies because they relate to the finality of life. Without finality life would not be beautiful.

But there are numerous archaic provisions that inhibit constructive change and adaptation. These constitutional bits affect the daily life of the republic and every citizen in it.
I think there ought to be a strict separation or wall built between our religious faith and our practice of political authority in office. I don’t think the President of the United States should extoll Christianity if he happens to be a Christian at the expense of Judaism Islam or other faiths.
