David Lynch speaks on Consciousness Tonight at USC

I had no idea that David Lynch had a foundation for conscious-based education and peace, but he does. And he’s speaking tonight with John Hagelin and Fred Travis, two PhDs. It looks like it’s going to be about Transcendental Meditation (TM).

This makes me think of a couple trivia questions somewhat related to this topic:

Question 1: What is the name of the Midwest town where Maharishi University is located? (Hint: The Gothic House is nearby.)
Question 2: What is the name of the Maharishi town near the university? (Hint: there are double-vastu homes available.)
Question 3: What celebrity owned a loose-meat sandwich restaurant in a nearby town?
Question 4: What the hell is a loose-meat sandwich?
Question 5: Why the hell does loose-meat sandwiches have with transcendental meditation?

Disclaimer: I do not practice TM. But I will buy you coffee if you can name the nearby town I was exiled in for 10+ years.

  1. Oh, Iowa.

    1. Fairfield
    2. Vedic City? I think.
    3. Maid Rite, in Marshalltown
    4. It’s like a Sloppy Joe without the sauce. I think there’s onion mixed in or something. It’s gray in color and you eat it off the counter.
    5. The only way you can get one down is while practicing TM?

    When I was in high school I dated a guy from Fairfield whose parents owned Yummycakes. I went to their prom. He wasn’t a floater, though.

  2. Excellent job Emily! You got almost all of them right. The answer to #3 is actually Tom Arnold and Rosanne Barr (it was in Eldon, Iowa and lasted about 6 months maybe). #5 didn’t have an answer in my book, so you win! I owe you coffee. The offer is still out if you can guess my exiled Iowa town…
