The moral of the story is: if someone asks you to rob a bank, say "yes".
I just want to say that this is a fantastic story, and I've done the thing where you start watching the video for just a bit and end up watching the entire thing, three times tonight. Just in case there's anyone who's not sure whether to watch the video or not. Watch it.
Not only is this a great story, but his life history and CV reads like Buckaroo Banzai: Neuroscientist-physicist-entrepreneur-hacker-bank robber who happens to be the French Tom Cruise. I think I need to work harder.
