Please Welcome a Man
Who people in ten thousand years’ time will still be reading and listening to. If you’re listening to this in ten thousand years’ time: Hello. From the past. Do you understand my language?
I was playing with my kids’ L.O.L. dolls today. That’s pretty cool, right? I call them Lol dolls and that annoys my kids. They’re Lol dolls!

David Frew when RH posited a film depicting the journey of Charlie Bucket’s sperm, DF suggested it be called Squid Games
What would you rather have named after you: the public toilet in the centre of your town or an embarrassing disease? The toilet would have a big neon sign above it them which would say, “The *Guest Name* Toilet.” The embarrassing disease would be mentioned on the news a lot and be caught by one in four people. Realistically, you would also need to be the first person to have the disease for it to carry your name.
*RH discusses the ability to disassociate if one’s name is extremely common.* I mean, Wang is as common as it gets. That would be perfect, yeah. Especially if it were a disease where your penis sort of got unnaturally engorged. It literally “filled your wang”. And I could say, with some level of believability that, “No, that’s not my name. It’s just the description of the disease.” It’s the German word for it. I think I’d go for the disease. I think a legacy is a legacy. The toilet… it would be run down eventually and, you know, the city wouldn’t look after it after a while. Get turned into some rubbish speakeasy. *RH supposes that it’s just nice to be remembered.* Exactly. Remembered regardless for what of. You know who I envy? Heimlich. He was the only one with, like, the cure named after him. He’s got the Maneuver named after him. Isn’t that cool? I mean, you imagine that Parkinson’s looking, Fucking Heimlich; he got… People are happy when his thing happens. Someone gets saved when his thing happens.
Would you rather know how you’ll die or what will happen to you after you die?
I think I’d rather know what happens to me after I die. Because if you know how you’re going to die, that’s torture. You know, you’d be looking out for it all the time, right? *RH suggests that if PW knew his cause of death, he could take measures to avoid it.* But in order for that warning to be true, it has to eventually happen. The mental torture of being terrified of windows and eventually causing you to jump out a window. Oh yeah. Interesting, interesting, interesting. *RH notes that knowledge of the post-death realm could also be torture.* I guess I’m arrogantly assuming it would be nice. *RH notes that there could be nothing after death.* Yes. I mean, that’s the most likely. Oh, I see, that’s what you mean. I thought you – I thought you meant that you’ll know what everyone else thinks of you after you die. What people say about you. Like, a sort of Christmas Carol thing where you float about. *RH asks PW whether he believes in an afterlife.* It seems highly unlikely. There’s no reason to believe that anything happens, but it could. But then, your question is, is there a beforelife? If there is no abyss, what were we before we were born? Maybe… Hmm, I don’t know. Yeah, I don’t think there is an afterlife, but I still will say “Sorry” to God, right before I die. Just in case. “BTW God, sorry about all the wanks. Okay, bye!”
This is PW’s second appearance.
