Interesting things. Or at least, things that I, a geek, find interesting.

You know what the first rule of flying is? Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I’m about to say.

I do. But I’d like to hear you say it.

So we’re digging in this rock quarry in Wyoming - the ambient air temperature is in the mid-80’s (~29 c), but surrounded by high walls of white reflective rock make it feel as though you’re working in a kiln. It’s incredibly dry and on a daily basis somebody gets a spontaneous nosebleed. Tom and I both had issues with the heat, constant sun exposure and the quick altitude change - Chicago is at 675 feet, our dig site was between 7,500-8,000. The dig came at the end of 6 intense week of travel and events for me. I was pretty worn down by the time we started filming, to say the least. 
And I actually took some time to consider putting on a light sweater when I realized I’d be leaning over our rock slab and facing the camera. I had to ask Tom to let me know if he thought the potential down-the-shirt shots were going to be a distraction. Do you know how ridiculous that is?

How rape trials should go?

  • Lawyer: Did he rape her?
  • Witness: Yes, but she was drunk and passed out.
  • Lawyer: That's not what I asked. Did he rape her?
  • Witness: Yes, but she was wearin-
  • Lawyer: I didn't ask what she was wearing. Did he rape her?
  • Witness: Yes, but-
  • Lawyer: I didn't ask anything else. It's just a simple yes or no answer. Did he rape her?
  • Witness: Yes.
  • Laywer: Yes, he raped her.
  • Rape is rape is rape, no matter the context.
