So a Physicist Walks Into a Bar

When given the option of having dinner with any figure, living or otherwise, Shane chose Albert Einstein. The one question he would ask him: "What's your favourite joke?"


Shane's favourite building is the United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, designed by Walter Netsch of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.
