Re: Education level

Graduated a few years ago with a bachelors degree in Biblical Studies. I started grad school, but needed some time to figure out where I was headed, for real this time, not just floating through like it's easy to do as an undergrad fella. I started back with a fresh focus and new aim this past semes...

Re: Steve Jobs' Biography

Got around to it a bit late, but I just finished the biography. Jobs had his flaws, and was probably a jackass to work for, but in the end I believe he left the world a better place than when he found it. He will have a lasting legacy for good.

Re: What would you do?

I wouldn't live lavishly, but comfortably. I'd buy this land I always wanted and build a nice home in the mountains. I'd make sure my family was always taken care of, bank the rest, and live happily ever after writing novels, working on a doctorate, and enjoying life and family.

I think it's very sleek and sexy and would be a blast to play with, but at the end of the day, I see it as useless. If I can carry an iPad around, I can carry a 13" MacBook Pro. If I'm away from my computer, my iPhone fills in nicely. It allows me to check email, surf the web, listen to music (...

Ahh, the candy of men.

My favorite candy would have to be dark chocolate malted milk balls (before you make a joke, ask yourself this: are you feeling lucky, punk?). There's a place downtown called The Fudge Factory that makes them every day. Heavenly.
