Not a question, sorry! I just wanted to thank you, as well as Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, for helping me get closer to my little brother. He's 18 and I'm about to turn 22, and we hardly have anything in common, as well as vastly different personalities. However, when we first discovered Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule, I remember laughing so hard we were both crying. It means so much to me that you've put so much work into producing a TV show that has given me so much joy over the years.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, ya dingus!

That is one of the reasons why I generally don't literally parachute in.

Nah, just a clickbait title

This entire sub is shameless promotion, whether it's a new book, a new movie, a new album, whatever. So many AMAs have had more shameless promotion than this one, the only difference is the people running them are usually a lot more famous.

Hey Pim, I'm also an aspiring entrepreneur with Tourettes. My question is, how have your tics affected your professional life up to this point?

Thanks for the response! If you have the time though, would you mind clarifying your last line?

The #1 thing that it has taught me is that I'm always thinking in solutions and not in problems.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what you mean by that.

Thanks so much man, good luck with everything!

EDIT: Goddamn, I feel bad for this guy, his response was immediately downvoted, even though it didn't have anything controversial or inappropriate in it. I do think this AMA was a little over-embellished, but I had a genuine question and he gave a genuine answer, and I appreciate that. No need to downvote everything he says into oblivion. Nevermind, I spoke too quickly. My apologies!
