He is decent at math.

He likes being obscure and having people fear him, like in High School.

He tells a good story--whenever I ask for a good anecdote he never fails with a good ol' Paul Harvey "Rest Of The Story".

He is wise.

He also said in a doomsday event he might let me come live at the farm and turn it into a compound to help fend it off from looters and wild gangs of people.
