“I would like to read the biography of Les Stroud, the guy who does the ‘Survivorman’ TV show. I want to know where he learned all the stuff he does in the show.”
“She’s an old-school gardener who grew all of her own food and raised all her own livestock to take care of her family. She also wrote and illustrated children’s books. She’s just a really neat older lady.”
“That’s easy. Teddy Roosevelt. He’s pure bravery. He led a brigade during the Spanish-American War without even being in the military. That’s like a state senator volunteering to go command a unit in Iraq.”
“Maybe Shakespeare, because there’s so much mystery surrounding him.”
