Yeah, there was a lot of that. Unfortunately, that’s the only way to present this idea to get the support he needs. I’m happy he’s smart enough to use it.
I was actually going to say that I wasn’t so impressed with his speaking style or presentation, but the importance and potential of his great ideas really shine through.

Audience: “You’re doing this because you care, right?”
Shai: “Yeah, whatever. Now give me a check if you want my caring.”
I did get some of that now that you mention it.
