Born into an ethnically confused household, Pierre Menard has a strange sense of identity and a stranger sense of humor. Pierre also has a strange sense of grammar and punctuation, which he is trying to make less strange. Pierre enjoys cooking, design, speaking about himself in third person, disc golf, and avoids dairy whenever possible.

The greatest chefs in the world will all proclaim, “Never cook with wine you wouldn’t drink,” and I will advise the same. In this case particularly, as you won’t be cooking with it at all, so I would pass on the discount bin bottle of rotgut cooking Sherry, if I were you.

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep.

She lost on Jeopardy.
