Would Chuck Klosterman love you? Part 1.
In his book Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, Chuck Klosterman lists 23 questions that he asks someone before he can decide if he can really love them. I thought it would be interesting to extend these questions to the fluther community, so here goes the first one:
1. Let us assume you met a rudimentary magician. Let us assume he can do five simple tricks – he can pull a rabbit out of his hat, he can make a coin disappear, he can turn the ace of spades into the joker card, and two others in a similar vein. These are his only tricks and he can’t learn anymore; he can only do these five. HOWEVER, it turns out that he’s doing these five tricks with real magic. It’s not an illusion; he can actually conjure the bunny out of the ether and he can move the coin through space. He’s legitimately magical, but extremely limited in scope and influence. Would this person be more impressive than Albert Einstein?
