  1. You are, without a doubt, the smartest and most talented human being I've ever known. In fact, I'm starting to think that you may not be a human being at all, but a non-stop machine that is in motion and able to put more than 24 hours into a single day. Hopefully you can be cloned for the betterment of this world.
