16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Moses Buttergoon. I randomly said it on Spring Break, "They call me Moses Buttergoon!"  And everyone started calling me that, so I changed my twitter name to it. After that, everyone started calling me Moses Buttergoon instead of SeaWolf.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would choose Bob Marley. I would ask him what his music meant to him and the real messages in his songs about the revolution he went through.
