18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can juggle.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Backward because I'll eventually be in the future but I'll never be able to live in the past again.

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 ask Jack Ruby why he shot Lee Harvey Oswald and if it was to cover up a conspiracy.
