An Interview with TMFYossarian

Last updated: 12/22/2013
The Fool:
Speak to the dead. You must have something to say. They may be listening.
TMFYossarian:
The afterlife: over- or underrated?
The Fool:
Would you rather be remembered as a person, a legend, or a myth?
TMFYossarian:
Hmm... legend? Given how legends tend to get out of hand, I figure that twenty years after I'm gone I'll be the remembered as the "person who called all the market tops, went all in every time the market bottomed, shot a 59 to win The Masters, and safely landed a Boeing 787 after both pilots had heart attacks." Heck, maybe I'll even get a couple statues.
The Fool:
Tell us about your first date. Who was it with and where did you go? (Remember, this is a family show!) ;)
TMFYossarian:
I was young, we both were incredibly nervous, one of our parents drove us (for the life of me I can't remember if it was one of her's or mine), we saw a movie (which I also can't remember). I'm going to assume that we must have enjoyed ourselves since we did date for a while.
