In the Twitter thread, Kane explained that growing up, their father, who is a trained military scout, would insist that they learn how to use paper maps and memorize routes while traveling instead of getting a GPS in their car.
When it comes to food, Kane said that whenever they visit an aquarium, their dad would go to the fish he had already eaten or planned to eat.
3/ When we visited aquariums, my dad liked to visit the fish he had eaten or aspired to eat.
His dad also wandered into a frat party after hearing that they often serve free beer.
7/ My dad really likes light beer. When my sister was graduating from BU, my dad heard that frat parties served free beer. So he wandered into one and helped himself to beer. I hear that the brothers were too bemused to kick him out so he had a few beers and left.
Probably his most Ron Swanson (a character played by Nick Offerman in the hit series “Parks and Recreation”) moment was when he said that working for the government after years in the private sector was like retirement.
10/ My dad is an engineer for the fed gov and was an emergency responder at Ground Zero and Hurrican Sandy.
But he chose to work in gov after years of private sector because “it’s basically like retirement, you don’t really do anything” (see? Ron Swanson)
