    Sparky the Uncrushable

    We'll give you a pet rock. It might be painted, it might not. It could have a history, which makes sense, because rocks are old. It's a pet that never dies! Well, not within a human live span, usually. Geologic time. So it's slowly dying, just not as fast as you. I mean, we didn't mean to bring up the subject of your inevitable death, but, like, it was relevant. Shit. Sorry.

    We Call You Out

    Become a Mastermind

    Donate $1000 or more and you can request a speaker for next year. We'll work with you to find a set of candidates who match our goals. We reserve the right to reject your suggestion if you suggest Ronald Reagan. He's dead. Also you need to evaluate your politics if you think we'd ever invite Ronald "trees cause more pollution than automobiles do" Reagan.
