If Thoreau were alive today,
• He’d carry a sign that says “Keep the government out of my Medicare!”
• He’d be Tim Ferris.
• He’d live in a custom-built trailer and call it a “tiny house”.

If Thoreau were alive 2,000 years ago, he’d be Jesus.
• What the H is he rambling on about? What do Egyptians have to do with this?
• Let me tell you the only acceptable way to bake bread.
• Wise, and quotable quip... Worship me, please.
• Did he just say that black slaves had it easier than free white men? Really? I can’t even.
