How long does it take you to solve a rubik’s cube?

I’ve never tried to solve a rubik’s cube but I think I could make it in under 5 minutes, maybe 10 minutes when I’m hypoglycaemic.

Have you ever saved somebody’s life?

No, but I have already been saved from drowning twice. And I like a song by Cass McCombs that rotates around the topic of saving lifes. It’s called »You saved my life«.

Where did you last get lost?

Last monday morning I was stressed out, I had too much black tea and not enough breakfast. I was supposed to go to an important meeting at an adress I’ve never been to before and was already too late. I had a panic attack and needed to sit down, and I said to myself »Fuck, where am I and where can I buy a snickers right now!?«
