Richard Dawkins is coming to my city.
My dad called me today to let me know, as I had no idea. He was a bit late though, because the event in which he's participating is fully booked and I can't possibly get in. What a bummer. He will also be signing books at the end Sadcryface

I'm so upset that I'm gonna miss this, I never thought he'd ever visit my country and I was hoping it would happen someday and now that it's happening I can't be there.

I can, however, ask a question on twitter which may be answered. I've been thinking of things I'd want to ask him for years, and now the event is tomorrow and I can't think of a single thing.

Where do you live?

There are many amateur "Richard Dawkinses" on this forum who can answer questions ...so fire away.

I live in Athens.
I don't see how asking people here would help since it's more of a "ask me anything" focused on him, rather than some talk on evolution or religion.

We all have our personal questions for writers when we read their books, don't we? And anyway, I was just hoping I could at least have a question of mine answered since I won't be able to see him.

Ask him why he's so 'strident'.

I'm sure no one's ever asked him that before.

What cologne does he wear?

I mean, does he smell like an old man, or does he smell good?

Believe it or not, these two questions are much better than what I've seen tweeted so far.
I doubt the person asking him the questions from Twitter will be able to find even three good ones in there.

Three hours left and I still haven't thought of something good.
