Wizard, on one hand you are a respected mathematician and known scientific skeptic; on the other hand you love attending Burning Man which is a festival brimming with New Age mysticism and pseudoscience such as crystal healing, astrology and pyramid power. How do you reconcile this yin and yang in your personality?

I would not describe Burning Man in that way. I saw quite a few people doing tarot card and palm readings, but I file that under entertainment value. Maybe I didn't go looking for that, but new age mysticism is not the purpose of Burning Man.

As a person who has gambled in Macau, what are your thoughts on the situation there including the unprecedented closing of every casino?

On an earlier stream you expressed interest in Andrew Yang's presidential run. Any closing thoughts now that he has dropped out of the race?

Just between us, what’s Mrs. Wizard getting for Valentine’s day?

Should the Superbowl be moved to Saturday?

If you could replace a holiday, which would go, and what new one would you put on the calendar?

Which new casino do you think you’ll like more, the Circa downtown or the Resorts World property on the Strip?

Dang, I didn't know he dropped out.
