Hi, glad to see you on Reddit.

I love your piece that you wrote a few years ago about lessons your dad taught you about mortality and immortality. I wish I had known about his work earlier than 2009 at age 19.

I have a lighter question than the others so far, about your dad. Did he enjoy the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes? I get the sense he'd've especially liked the Spaceman Spiff segments.

Are you familiar with Daniel Tammet? What is your opinion on his claim to have learned conversational Icelandic in seven days?

Some say this has already happened.

You've seen the Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal webtoon about Carl Sagan trying to talk his son into changing the cat litter, right?

(Nick Sagan responded to it on Twitter a few years ago, saying that Carl wasn't a cat person and thus there was no litter box that needed cleaning).
