Rza and Dave Chappelle bought me lunch. I was a process server in college and I tried to serve papers to a guy, but he shoved me and ran off. Dave and Rza saw it, offered me food, and we chatted while the order was being made. Both are very nice and down to earth guys

I nearly fell from a cliff in the Chinese southwestern Mountain range. (It would have been severely injured or death)

Me and my buddy got lost during a hike, and the only way back to the trail was by climbing a very steep slope. At one point, I lost control and started sliding down, and I was saved by tree.

Traumatising experience...

There's a young white dude at my very, very male dominated agency who has been there less time than me and keeps getting amazing production opportunities that I'm just not getting. Trying to figure out if he's exceptionally talented or if this is a sexist thing. I can understand the guys who've been there forever getting the good opportunities. But I can't figure out why he's getting handed golden briefs when I'm stuck on banners. He's younger and less experienced. I can't help but feel like it has to do with having a penis.
