Have you considered taking up a teaching position? As far as I know Greendale Community College still hasn't replaced their Grifting 101 professor.

lol- Smirnoff ice is a great answer. Would be fun to work that into a storyline where some advanced civilization identifies Smirnoff as humanities greatest achievement and sets up some elaborate contest to find the most capable humans, but their reward is just Smirnoff.

Alternatively a good treasure would be the number 42 scrawled on a post-it note and\or the phrase "We Apologize for the Inconvenience"

Why do I experience 'now'? 'Time' makes a lot of intuitive sense in terms of being what separates events. But I'm interested in why our experience of an apparent 'now' has such total primacy in our conscious experience. Only think I can think is sort of an anthropic principle answer- that there has to be a now that we can experience so we're experiencing this one because we can, but that doesn't really satisfy me.

Just an open ended question, looking for any thoughts or research direction, philosophical or physical, to help me explore this question.
