At the end of the year (or the beginning of a new one) people like to look back at the year that was and make lists. Lists about their favorite moment of the previous year, or best films etc.
Being the Smartest Man in the World, I pride myself on learning/mastering something every year. In 2005 I mastered lovemaking and in 2006 it was interpretive dance. 2007 was no different and since I am a fan of Esquire Magazine I decided to fill you in on my year by doing my very own installment of "What I've Learned". For those not familiar with "What I've Learned" it is a super cool feature where a Celebrity states in point form any wisdom they have picked up in their lifetime.
My list is going to be far from complete but will feature a few tidbits from my life in the last 12 months.
- -Never lobby to get a job for an old friend's husband because it can bite you in the ass

- -After seeing films like Jesus Camp and The Kingdom I realized that there is no FUN in fundamentalism.
- -There is a bunch of money to be made by adding the FUN to fundamentalism
