Have you found seashells or Petoskey stones at the beach? Both, we actually have a polishing stones business. So, yeah, we have a business that we do, and we polished Stones. We've found hundreds of Petoskey, stones. Seashells, we found those more in North Carolina and California, but in here, in Michigan where I live, we find Petoskey stones all the time. I mean, I used to find seashells but then because of climate change or sorry, not climate change, because of the sea levels going up and due -- in the lakes, it's not due to climate change. But due to the sea levels going up, actually we did not get to find seashells anymore because there was this strip of land that it had hundreds thousands so many seashells, and we would just get to pick them up, but now we don't. We don't really have those anymore.
Would you describe yourself more as a river, or a lake, why? Probably a river because a lake stays in one place and a river is always going on its way like flowing. Would you rather be a crab or whale? Crab. Probably a crab. For one, the whales are not doing so well in climate change and stuff. Two—the crabs—I don't know. They're just funny and cute. So, I'd be a crab.
Oh, Avatar. If I was to be one of the characters in Avatar, it'd probably be Sokka actually. Cuz -- yeah I don't get any of the powers, but if he was to ever mature and grow up developing your skills that man would basically be the Avatar version of Batman. His signature weapon is boomerangs. And what does Batman use? Batarangs. Think of the possibilities, especially if you learn that sort of martial arts that one of the characters used where it could block their Chi points or something. Either that or Toph. I'm already partially blind, so if I were ever to go all the way, I would definitely want to be Toph, and just -- you know, Bend Earth and all that.
Have you ever been to a pool or lake or something gross or dangerous? No, I mean, that's --I don't really like swimming in that. I'm always afraid of what might be in the water. I remember, I was in Hawaii one time and swimming in the ocean, which is kind of a cool experience. And all of a sudden I sort of had this panic attack like I didn't know what was around me, or under me. Basically I had no idea. And shortly after that panic attack, a turtle popped his head up within almost arm's length of me, and I just thought, okay, as cool as this is and it was, and I was kind of freaking out because I am so excited that the turtle was literally right there. I also kind of thought, okay there could be anything in this water. We have absolutely no idea what is around us so I really -- I really was sort of freaked out and very excited at the same time.
Do I think of myself more as a river or a lake? I think, a lake. And the reason why is I find lake sounds, ocean sounds, waves lapping to be very soothing to me. There's something about them, even when the lake -- Lake Superior when she's angry and she's just pounding the shore, it's just -- first of all, that's magnificent and it's just something about it that is soothing. River water, running, is fine. It just sounds too busy to me, I guess, I don't know. It's just I like being around water, no question. I like the river. If I had a preference, I would take the lake, there's just something about the lake. Maybe having grown up by Lake Superior makes a difference but it's just something about having that magnificent lake and in the -- during the gloaming, she's -- she's often just gently lapping the water, almost speaking to you, and then again, when she's angry, she pounds the shore like nobody's business and she lets you know. You have to grow up to respect Lake Superior. No question about it.
