    wrong , you're not special at all and no universe is living inside you. But the fact you can question your own existence is what makes you special, so fucking work on this part and dont try to justify your hapiness by your persona.

    Where can you buy the Hot Ones sauce? Level 15,600. The one with the pineapple flavor in it. My dad is on chemotherapy and lost a lot of his taste buds and now loves hot sauce to give some flavor to his food. Thanks!

    This is my first time actually seeing Neil in an interview. I'm aware he's regarded as a genius, and is very popular. I haven't looked into his work because I'm not that big a fan of what's in the universe and how it all comes together as opposed to just experiencing things as they come. However! I am highly entertained and humbled by this man, and feel he has not just a very good grasp of his specialty in astrophysics but in people as well. I like this guy. We need more like him who can see the bigger picture and not bullshit the facts to serve themselves, but for humanity as a whole.
