HC: What would the title of your autobiography be?Ben: “Ben, the Book.” It would be published a few years before “Ben, the Movie” (which would go straight to DVD). That, of course, would be followed by a short spin off called “Ben, the TV Show.”
HC: What career do you hope to pursue after college?Ben: The dream would be to work on/design rockets with Space X and kick it with Elon Musk, but we’ll see how that goes.
HC: What is your favorite saying?Ben: Maybe “put your best foot forward,” because it implies that you openly play favorites with your feet, which is not ok. You should love both of your feet equally.
HC: If you were stranded in a TV show for a month, which would you choose?Ben: Definitely C-SPAN. It sounds boring, but I would bring the whole crew with me and we would spend hours on television playing monkey in the middle and teach Ted Cruz about science and stuff.
HC: Finish this sentence “ I don’t trust people who….”Ben: Go to bed at a decent hour
HC: If you could retire tomorrow, what would you spend the rest of your life doing?Ben: I’ve always wanted to go to Chile, specifically Patagonia. There I could build a cabin and hang out with Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins and listen to some of the stories they have to tell. Also, it would give me ample time to work on my autobiography/movie/TV-series.
