"Yeah, when I was I think, 17, I was doing an exam in school. I think it was geography, and I hadn’t studied at all for it. And I didn’t know the answer to the first question and I just sort of shut my eyes. I was considering whether I should just leave the room or not and I shut my eyes and there’s this like fully realized, three dimensional like hologram of Buddha in my head and I sort of looked at it and it was so real you could almost touch it. And it threw these little spinning jack things into my eyes and I opened my eyes and I knew every single answer to this exam paper. Every time I shut my eyes afterwards though, this Buddha was still there for like three months. And I could ask it questions about things and it would always give me the answer. The same deal with the jacks, the tacks, whatever they’re called. After about three months I told someone about it and then I realized I could ask it to do things, and affect fate, and it would actually change what happened in the world and it started to really freak me out. And then I asked it to do a number of things which have significantly altered my life in a lot of ways. And then I met this girl, who I got really obsessed with and the Buddha left and she stayed in my head and for about five years I resented her every single day for it and then I asked her about it last year and she didn’t know what I was talking about. I’m Robert Pattinson, and that is my best story, ever."
