  1. Next time I get a hostile question at a talk, I’m going to have to use that line — “I stand with two thousand years of darkness and bafflement and hunger behind me, my kind have harvested the souls of a million peasants and I couldn’t give a ha’penny jeers for your internet-assembled philosophy”.


  2. Or when a student asks:

    Q: Why are you treating me like this?

    You can answer (from the shopping video):

    A: Because I’m trying to help you. I’m trying to help you have standards. I’m trying to make you know that the world isn’t pleased to see you. You aren’t needed, or included, or loved. You’re ugly, and superfluous, and ignorant. And you should be frightened. And meek. And grateful.
