Do you have any irrational fears?

I am pretty much fearless. I would jump out of a plane tomorrow if I had the chance!  

What’s your favorite thing to do on a Saturday?

In the summer, mow my lawn and barbeque. I’m anal about having perfect, straight lines on my lawn, much like a baseball field.

If Richard Branson invited you on his maiden voyage to visit Mars would you go?    

Sure, I'm adventurous.
