    Alright, so specialty. You have not lived the same life as any other human. You are the only combination of your mother and your father. Forget that the universe exists, because it doesn’t exist to make you feel small. You are on this earth. And this earth is huge, but we can see quite a bit of this earth. Ultimately, you should not take my word on why you matter. You DO matter. But tell your self the reasons you matter. Why you will matter. Why you will win the fight, prove so many hateful people wrong.

    With the solving problems thing. They're not mutually exclusive, what people object to is that they never get round to solving earth's biggest problems while doing "I've got the biggest space dick" stuff.

    Neil is awesome, I would vote for him if he wanted to be president of the world !!! He knows how little we are in the universe. More famous people need to listen to Neil and learn to keep there mouths shut because what they say don’t represent shit. All the celebrities need to know is that there ass is what they communicate threw. Neil communicates threw the true hierarchy of power.

    You need to get the crazy guy that’s always on the history channel (ancient aliens)with the crazy hair. Everyone knows who I’m talking about but nobody knows his name. And have and have Neal be a one time host. And have bill come in half way threw.

    I do like "hot." I don't like It has a sour edge that it doesn't need. I'm happier with Louisiana, Texas Pete's, Chrystal and some of the others. There is another kind of heat in horse radish. If you get prepared horse radish at the right time of year, it will make your nose run and your eyes water.
