Part of just one (representative) conversation that there wasn’t space for:

Hot Rod (tattoo artist): No, they caught the coelacanth. Big prehistoric fish that was supposed to be extinct for like millions of years. And then they caught one. Live.
Royce White: Are you f——-’ serious?
Disembodied voice of another tattoo artist: You need to watch Blue Planet!
Everyone: Yeah!
Me: Blue Planet is the best.
Royce: Now think about when aliens come here. When aliens come here and they see me throwing a ball in a hoop, what are they going to think? They’re going to be like, This dude is wasting all his time.

Thus we talked about aliens. And much more.
