There are quite a lot of YouTube clips of me that have gone viral.

It's like, you can't have any fun, and if you do have fun, if you do your own thing, you're considered crazy and should be in a mental institution. Now, that's what I find creepy. I'm eccentric. I am not messed up.

Collaboration is important not just because it's a better way to learn. The spirit of collaboration is penetrating every institution and all of our lives.
