On Facebook, Nic offers lessons he's learned from comedian Robin Williams:

  • Mork taught me that being weird can be a good thing. Nanu nanu.
  • Adrian Cronauer taught me to be irreverent and to use music as a coping mechanism.
  • John Keating taught me to stand up, seize the day, and make my life extraordinary.
  • Dr. Malcolm Sayer taught me to appreciate life.
  • Parry The Fisher King taught me that every man needs a quest.
  • Peter Banning taught me to believe in my inner child.
  • Batty Koda taught me that only fools are positive.
  • The Genie taught me the value of a well placed pop culture reference.
  • Daniel Hillard dressed up as Iphegenia Doubtfire and taught me that nothing is more important than time with my kids.
