interesting follow up.

The story appears to be true, but the writers researched and wrote the story to get bids on it for a movie.

http://www.vulture.com/2018/08...cle-bidding-war.html

They were successful.

a $350,000 option fee against $1 million if the movie gets made

a deal made just about 72 hours after the story’s publication

That’s the highest price ever paid for an optioned article in Hollywood history

When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual."
