When Chuck Klosterman spoke at Boswell Book’s last summer to promote the paperback release of Downtown Owl, he discussed compiling all the hypothetical questions he had thought of over the past couple years into some sort of party game that “you’d probably eventually see at Urban Outfitters.” Well, he tweeted today that you could pre-order the set via Amazon for about $10. Hypertheticals: 50 Questions for Insane Conversations will be available on June 15, but here’s a question he posed at his book signing that should hold you off until then:
You’re offered a job in New York City where once you wake up, you take a cab to the airport, then you fly to Los Angeles, take a cab to some agency in Hollywood, hand them a piece of paper, take a cab back to the airport, fly back to New York City, take a cab home and go to sleep. You do this every Monday through Friday. The job pays $200,000 a year. Do you take it?
