The Fool: Your greatest fear? Any neurotic ones (agoraphobia, triskaidekaphobia, etc.)?
Weaselboy2: I'm afraid of people who ask me a lot of questions.
The Fool: Is there someone to whom you'd like to say 'Thank You,' but never had the chance?
Weaselboy2: What the heck kind of question is that? Why do you ask?
The Fool: Give a short description of your best and/or worst vacation.
Weaselboy2: Best vacation: 10 days on Maui in 1990...

Worst: That 5-day Boznia Bonanza package deal I got wasn't as good as I thought it would be...
The Fool: Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
Weaselboy2: Had I been in my right mind, I would never have bought those albums by Pablo Cruise, Peter Frampton, and REO Speedwagon back in the 70's.


I'll give you a hint: I bought Iomega at about $6 in 1995 and watched it go up to $55 in mid-1996.
The Fool: Tell us about your first date. Who was it with and where did you go? (Remember, this is a family show!) ;)
Weaselboy2: To this day, I truly don't think that the girl ever knew that it was a date. In fact, I don't think she knew we were "going out" days later. Even more amazing, I don't think she knew she broke up with me.
The Fool: Your most heroic moment in life?
Weaselboy2: One time at the zoo I lifted an elephant off of a small child when the kid walked up to it to try to pull its tail. The kid didn't live, but I thought it was pretty heroic. Oh...you wanted a true story?
The Fool: Make a confession.
Weaselboy2: Sometimes my wife and I share a large ice tea at McDonald's and go up for several free refills instead of buying two ice teas.
The Fool: Share with us your best money-saving secret -- cutting coupons, sneaking candy into the movies, shopping on Wednesday and pretending you're over 65?
Weaselboy2: Are you sure you didn't ask me this one already? I saved a ton of money last week when I didn't buy a new car and a boat. Last year I didn't buy a new house and I saved even more.
The Fool: Briefly review your favorite book.
Weaselboy2: There's this monkey, you see, and a man with a yellow hat owns him, but the man in the yellow hat has this tendency to lose track of the monkey and the monkey keeps getting in all kinds of goofy trouble like the time that the monkey (his name is George) somehow ends up running the ice cream store while the owner is away and tries making a sundae with ALL the flavors and toppings in the store. I could go on, but you should read it yourself.
The Fool: Briefly explain how you select stocks.
Weaselboy2: As an Investment Advisor at H&H Investments, I can't tell you because our methods are proprietary. But you can trust me-just bring cash, small bills. After all, H&H Investments is "Where Our Clients Get Everything They Deserve, and then some!"
The Fool: Describe the most embarrassing personal moment you'll admit to!
Weaselboy2: I was so nervous at my wedding that in the receiving line I went to kiss my wife's uncle. Frankly, to this day my wife isn't sure our wedding was legal because I slurred my words so badly (and I wasn't drunk).
The Fool: Tell us about your greatest personal success, not necessarily finance related.
Weaselboy2: My wife and I have raised our kids (so far anyhow) in such a manner that they aren't anything like me...oh, and I almost forgot...I outmanuevered hundreds of other people to capture the 25,000th post on the NADA board...of this I am very proud.
The Fool: What, in your opinion, are some of life's big mysteries?
Weaselboy2: Why do people listen to people like Celine Dion, Yanni, and Hootie & the Blowfish?
The Fool: If you could be the CEO of any public company, which one and why?
Weaselboy2: Berkshire Hathaway...because: (a) I think it would be fun trying to allocate all that capital and (b) those nutty shareholders keep sending the current CEO (you know who) See's candy as thank you gifts for making them rich.
The Fool: As you were growing up (or now, raising children), did your family have any distinctive rituals or practices others might do well to emulate?
Weaselboy2: No matter how busy we are, we make it a point to all sit down to dinner together and tell each other about our respective days.
The Fool: What's your greatest athletic achievement? Little League champ? Ran a marathon? Did 4 consecutive sit-ups?
Weaselboy2: I'm proud of the fact that I was able to parlay a body blessed with extremely limited strength, speed, quickness, size and brains into a full tuition baseball scholarship. And it's been all downhill from there. ;-)...oh, and I almost forgot...did I mention that I outmanuevered hundreds of other people to capture the 25,000th post on the NADA board?
The Fool: Which celebrity or public figure (past or present) do you most look like?
Weaselboy2: Ever seen that TV show from the 80's, "Alf"?
The Fool: What's one of your special talents?
Weaselboy2: I can annoy anyone, any time, anywhere.
The Fool: If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
Weaselboy2: World War II...I didn't know a whole lot about it until I (recently) read both "Citizen Soldiers" and "D-Day" by Stephen Ambrose. I don't think many younger people like me realize what an epic, sad and amazing time the 40's were and what sacrifices were made.
The Fool: What's the strangest thing you've ever seen?
Weaselboy2: Steve Dahl's Disco Demolition Day at Comiskey Park in Chicago in 1979 (?). When people describe it as a near-riot, they are correct. Hundreds of drunken,scroungy-looking, drunken (did I mention that one already?) stringy-haired teenagers stormed the baseball field, throwing albums (remember them?), tearing up the grass and running THROUGH the huge bonfire created when they blew up all those disco albums.
