Yes I admit it. Like a complete idiot I visited the Chicago/ Minneapolis region earlier this year (Jan). I guess coming from the South, I really dig huge piles of white stuff. And I can say "Eliezer" correctly. I also tasted some of his mom's spaghetti :-)

Oh yeah, yes he is 19.

I can provide more details if needed. And since I should be meeting with Max More tomorrow, you can verify with him that I am not some alter ego of Eliezer :-)
