Well, I'll admit that I cheated a little bit, but eh.

I've finally hit 10k posts!

*releases the confetti*

Ah, it's raining dollar bills--or, as they say at the Fed, it's raining monetary base. We'd better take it back before it creates inflation.

Oh, wait, that isn't going to happen. I forgot the libertarian dumbfcks predicting skyrocketing inflation have been wrong on absolutely everything,

So, this is a different kind of AMA. A lot of people add an extra "a" in somewhere for "almost" anything. I, however, will answer any question posed to me as candidly as I choose--which is the only loophole I will maintain, and even then I'll exercise it liberally.

Ask away!

At a prostitution ring, of course.

2. What is your favorite video game? What makes for a good video game?

I'm not much of a gamer. I don't think I've played a video game since I was a little kid, but I loved Rachet and Clank: I would say a good game requires a reasonably well-defined storyline, some leeway as to how to actually complete it (e.g., upgradable weapons), and some variety--it gets boring to fight the same bosses again and again, for instance, especially if they're of roughly equal difficulty. Generally the game should get harder as it progresses.

3. What would be your dream profession, regardless of current feasibility?

I'd love to be a staff economist at the Board of Governors, particularly one that's high-profile enough to attend FOMC meetings.

4. If you could send a 3-word message back in time to your younger self, what would the message be and to what time in your life would you send the message?

I'd send a message to myself as a senior in high school, saying something to the effect of "Learn some econometrics."

That sounds a bit vague, but basically I had this vague idea when I was in high school that I was *supposed* to go to law school, even though most people who make that assumption are grossly overstated their abilities. I'd want to get an earlier start to economics.

5. If you could have one super power, what would it be?

The power to read minds.

6. What is your happiest memory?

There are a few, though there's a bit too personal to share here, lol.

7. What are 3 traits you look for in a significant other? What are 3 deal-breakers?

Hmmm, this is a great question.

Traits I look for: Intelligence, ambition, willingness to stand up for herself.

Traits I abhor: lack of intelligence, lack of ambition, cowardice.

What's with the obsession of bunnies?

If you had one super power, what would it be?

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

What is one thing in life, that's makes life worth living to you?

My best friend loves bunnies, and named me Bunny.

See above--power to read minds.

Nothing.

What is one thing in life, that's makes life worth living to you?

I can think of two, both of which have been constants in my life over the past year: my best friend (/ little sister) and economics. Without either, I don't know what I would do with myself.

Flee to Mexico, so that the Mexican government can send me over the border. I'm not scared of a giant fcking wall.

Give Trump a private conference with the Mexican government and they'll pledge their entire army in support of the war for European liberation within 5 minutes.

So, basically, Trump is Jesus.

What is the best color coat for a cat?

White.

How many ways are there to love a cat?

42.

As a rough estimate, how many AMA's have you done?

8? Are we counting Econ AMA's? If so, maybe 12.

What was the most embarrassing or uncomfortable answer you had to give in an AMA and please repeat it now.

See your flame-war thread.

Pirates or lumberjacks?

Lumberjacks, just because I know you would say pirates.

Have you ever been in a street fight?

No.

Do you plan to run for office?

No, lol. I'm the least charismatic person ever--and I'm allergic to bullsh1t.

Did you get anything other than a 5 on your AP economics exam? (hint: if you did, shoot yourself)

Nope!

Current love interest?

There are two: Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick.

Who do you expect to win the presidential election?

Hillary Clinton.

Honest opinion of Airmax?

I think he's a Russian spy disguised as a Jewish moderator, sent to gain information from the most intelligent amongst us.

You're a cool kid, and really, really smart, especially for your age. You really should fork over the carrots, though.

Ah, it's raining dollar bills--or, as they say at the Fed, it's raining monetary base. We'd better take it back before it creates inflation.

Oh, wait, that isn't going to happen. I forgot the libertarian dumbfcks predicting skyrocketing inflation have been wrong on absolutely everything,

So, this is a different kind of AMA. A lot of people add an extra "a" in somewhere for "almost" anything. I, however, will answer any question posed to me as candidly as I choose--which is the only loophole I will maintain, and even then I'll exercise it liberally.

Wait, you returned? I thought you quit for good a few months ago.

First, I'd hardly call them "antics," and I take offense to your characterization. This underscores a point I'm going to make below.

Second, I didn't appreciate him picking at an old scab. It might have been funny for an uninformed bystander, such as yourself, but what you actually witnessed in that thread only scratched the surface of what was (and had been) going on in private. There were a lot of extremely hurtful falsehoods promulgated about me and people I care about, and that's something that (a) shouldn't be brought up in public and (b) when it dies, it should stay fcking dead.
