...like no one ever was.

Let's see some people get their brag on. What are you the best at? Or at least very good at? If you can't think of anything, what would you like to be the best at?

I'm good with most music related things, etymology, writing poetry and stories, and procrastination.

I'm pretty good with multitasking too; I'm writing this and procrastinating at the same time!!! :P

I want to be the best at pretty much everything I do.

1. Archery. I want to be even better than Annie, Howard Hill, and Larz Anderson.
2. Bow making. I want to make better bows than Bob Lee and James Parker.
3. Knife making. I want to make better knives than Bob Jankowski and John Horrigan.
4. Theology. I want to be a better theologian than Jonathan Edwards and John Piper.
5. Writing. I want to be a better writer than J.R.R. Tolkien and John Dominic Crossan.
6. Debating. I want to be better than Roy Latham, Danielle, and Mikal.
7. Philosophy. I want to be better than Aristotle, Thomas Nagel, and David Hume.
8. Biking. I want to be better than Lance Armstrong.
9. Singing. I want to be better than Art Garfunkel, Natalie Merchant, and Glen Frey.
10. History. I want to be a better historian than David McCullough and N.T. Wright.
11. Violin making. I want to make better violins than Andrea Amati and Antonio Stradivarius.
12. Violin playing. I want to play the violin better than Niccolo Paganini.
13. Guitar playing. I want to play the guitar better than Jimmy Hendrix and Gabriella Quevedo.
14. Jiu Jitsu. I want to fight better than Rickson Gracie.

It's probably best that I'm not the best at all these things, though, because if I was, I'd probably be really arrogant.

Props! I enjoy watching archery in the Olympics and it seems like such a calming yet intense hobby. Do you feel relaxed while practicing or is it stressful?

I saw some of your weapon-making videos on youtube. You clearly have the skills. What's your favorite of the things you've built?

4. Theology. I want to be a better theologian than Jonathan Edwards and John Piper.
5. Writing. I want to be a better writer than J.R.R. Tolkien and John Dominic Crossan.
6. Debating. I want to be better than Roy Latham, Danielle, and Mikal.

I assume you're taking the proper supplements.

9. Singing. I want to be better than Art Garfunkel, Natalie Merchant, and Glen Frey.

You're pretty much there, dude. That duet you did with yourself was amazing.

10. History. I want to be a better historian than David McCullough and N.T. Wright.
11. Violin making. I want to make better violins than Andrea Amati and Antonio Stradivarius.

That's a really difficult question. Here's my favourite bow I've ever made:

My favourite knife is a toss up between this one:

and this one:

I'm pretty happy with these baseballs I made, too:

I think even without supplements, I've got nothing on Lance Armstrong.

9. Singing. I want to be better than Art Garfunkel, Natalie Merchant, and Glen Frey.

I don't believe that, but it is very nice of you to say. :-) Thanks.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Thanks. No, I just do it for a hobby. Every now and then I'll give something away to make more room on my bow rack, or I'll sell something so I can buy more supplies. But I mostly do it for fun.
