What happened that resulted in you weighing almost 500 lbs? And what was the progression (e.g 200 lbs at age X, 250 lbs at age y, etc.)? Congratulations on losing all the weight, and hopefully you inspire others.

I almost went to Antarctica in December because it's a lifelong goal to take a picture with a penguin in the wild. Do ever plan on going back in the near future?

Wow, I'm dumb.

Sigh. This is why you don't reddit and talk on the phone at the same time. I've never seen an AMA post more than 24 hours before the actual AMA though. Why would anyone think that's a good idea? Maybe to get give more carefully crafted responses or something.

I've also heard of people getting assaulted by cab drivers, so I'm curious to see whether Uber is actually less safe than a cab.

I'll admit I've never used Uber (because I've never needed one), but I will probably be using it soon on an upcoming trip. I've used cabs in NYC. The experience was okay, but the hardest parts were 1) finding a cab at certain parts of town, especially at night and 2) actually hailing the cab.

Uber takes care of both those aspects, which is nice. It's also easier to leave feedback, while when we had a crazy cab driver we pretty much just had to deal with it.
