Jason Ellis enjoys wearing lounge pants under his regular pants. As a child, he would swing from the mast of a sloop, shipwrecked behind the house. He wakes up sometimes, in the middle of the night, covered in sweat. If he had only moments to escape his building before it was puddled by a satellite-mounted magnesium cannon, he would, assuming the wife and cats had already decamped, save Ambush Bug #4.  Also, he has been in plays.
