So when are we allowed in silently I guess What’s the right way to respond to the endless?
Ongoing confusion when I get messages intended for the other guy the Lex Friedman fellow and he pronounces it Friedman But I pronounce it Friedman because that’s how he spells it what’s the right way to handle him because I’ve more recently been sending notes saying back because I’ll typically ignore the message then if they send a follow-up I’ll write back and say I’m Lex Friedman.
You’re looking for Friedman.
That’s not who I am Sometimes I’ll say something like as you can imagine it happens a lot or it’s the curse of my existence or whatever But I don’t feel like it’s the best way to respond So I thought what if I had a URL I could send people to to clear things up and that is Lex Friedman comm slash Friedman and on that page are a few sentences and The lyrics to the following song and an embed of the following song.
