Preferred swim test stroke?  

I think it’s called the dog paddle.

What are three things you learned at Columbia? 

1.  They can tell when you don’t do the reading.  2.  It doesn’t help too much to put a towel under the door.  3.  Most points, least meals.

Justify your existence in 30 words or less.

I think existence is right but I think I could learn to cook.  So you should keep me around.

What was your favorite controversy in your time at Columbia?

Something about money or God.  Maybe the banana thing.

I have no idea.

10%

Would you rather permanently give up oral sex or cheese?

I abstain, but only from answering the question.

Days on campus memory?

Meeting Avi Zenilman and being continually shocked.

Regrets?

I wish I had worked harder and I wish I had partied a lot more.

    @wow that was boring. only the “abstain” comment was remotely clever.

    1. james says:

      @james is pretty quiet. good kid though. and how many columbians do you know with multiple ivy title rings and an ncaa championship ring?

      1. clearly says:

        @clearly such people are too busy off campus to get to know many of us.

  • Iiii says:

    @Iiii liked it! More of these!

  • llll says:

    @llll boriiiinnnnggg.

    the guy certainly seems accomplished, but why bother publishing this article when it’s so devoid of anything interesting.

    1. because says:

      @because he’s best buddies with avi zenilman?

      1. well says:

        @well that helps, but this is easier:

        1. *sigh* says:

          @*sigh* that’s a different james williams. the name ain’t no xanadu kahn.

          1. no... says:

            @no... No, it’s the same guy. He abbreviates “Leighman” with an “R.”.

            Duh.

          2. i am 12 says:

            @i am 12 ‘duh’ maybe for you, but not for 11.

    2. boring? says:

      @boring? bwog readers who say this interview is boring why are you always looking for something to be funny or clever? isn’t okay every once in a while for someone to answer stupid bwog interviews like this in a straight up fashion without the psuedo-intellectual cleverness attached? that shit isn’t even funny a quarter of the time. sometimes its just plain stupid.

      1. ugh says:

        @ugh why should I read something “straight up”? I’m not coming here to read the same grunty responses I would have barked at these questions had someone woken me up at 4:30AM to answer them.

        1. ha! says:

          @ha! true, you’re coming here because you’re procrastinating on that paper that’s due soon

      2. Well says:

        @Well It’s kind of stupid to label something as “senior wisdom” when nothing of the sort is offered by the responses.

  • it's true says:

    @it's true that this article could have been more interesting. I love James, and he’s really not that quiet. I call for a sequel!

  • i'de.... says:

    @i'de.... be careful to criticise the man… he could beat any of us in a duel any time

  • this post was says:

    @this post was BOOORRRINNGGGGGGG

  • jrodney says:

    @jrodney james’ junk is at least a long as kogler’s

    1. Veritas says:

      @Veritas No one’s junk is as long as kogler’s. If anyone gets close, he just makes his longer.

  • clever? says:

    @clever? If he’s joking with the “regrets” question, it’s funny. But if not, it’s… not.

  • s!! says:

    @s!! only boring people get bored

  • hello says:

    @hello 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C1

    1. bye says:

      @bye for the second time, i do not like movies.

    2. wtf says:

      @wtf who uses hd-dvd anyway

  • CML says:

    @CML It wasn’t James’ fault that the questions are kinda lame. Hilarious interviews should be more open-ended.

  • who cares says:

    @who cares fuck the responses, why is the photo not showing how damn good looking he is?
