II. Oh The Shark Oh the shark You keep the world at bay Oh the shark keep the world Oh the shark has Oh yeah, we back! keep the world Fresh kid T Oh yeah, we back! Oh the shark has I encrypt as much as I can. My guest tonight, a very funny comedian and actor, known from Knocked Up, Superbad Oh the shark has You keep the world at bay My first kiss with Roberto on the wire was unlike any other kiss I’ve ever had And I’ll be strong enough to try I encrypt as much as I can. I zerofilled the original. I don’t want to be a part. I wish I could explain the pain It’s beautiful and horrifying If you had free reign, what would you do? I try to explain and they twist it around. You can’t come back down and land before you shoot. - SAWYER: What’s the answer we most want? - HAWKING: I want to know why the universe exists... Can’t stop, now I know who I am Oh the shark has


I encrypt as much as I can. I was reduced in rank today. I’m godless. I’ve created a massive mess. I keep track of everything. I watch the whole thing unfold. Beautiful and horrifying. I know the feeling. It’s not me. I don’t pay for the meter, I remember I wasbe strong enough to There’s still plenty of time remaining. (De-fense!) I encrypt as much as I can. I was short, still am. I watch. I keep. I was awestruck I’m in more potential heat than you ever were. I’m a mess. I barely exist. There is such a disconnect between myself and what I know and what people see. I’m a wreck. I’ve made a mess. I would never, and have never, out an ordinary decent criminal. There’s a difference. - HAWKING: ...and how insignificant and accidental human life is in it...

Are there any instances … You’ve said many … Are you saying in particular … You’ve said many times, ‘smear campaign.’ Do you feel any state—any government—has a right to any secrets at all? Are you saying undue influence on the women… or is it undue influence on the prosecutor? When you see references to yourself as anarchic, an anarchist… Do you fear that you will end up in an American jail? is that an accurate description of what you are? [an] undue influence on the women?... I was in the courtroom all these times, and there was talk of forcibly spreading her legs… Are you concerned about your safety? Holding her down so she couldn’t move… Julian in a nutshell what is wikileaks? Are you a journalist? What do you want to achieve with the release of the video? When you see references to yourself as anarchic, an anarchist, is that an accurate description of what you are? Do you fear that you will end up in an American jail? Would you call yourself a free market proponent? Are there any instances [in] diplomacy or global affairs in which you see secrecy as necessary and as an asset? Does that mean you have private sector-focused leaks in the works? Well, that's a very strong charge. Are you concerned about your safety? And what they're saying is very strong. Megaleaks? Do you think that large portions of -- whether it's the American media or the international media -have abandoned you… Do you think it’s anyone leading the campaign against you or is it an opaque group?[ Abandoned you and not come to your defense when people in government call you a high tech terrorist? Us? China? I’m not arguing… How do your leaks … Can you give me some examples? I’m not arguing you’re a hacker now. How do your leaks fit into that? Your leak really… Megaleaks? Really substantially changed the world? Us? China? Can you give me some examples? How do your leaks fit into that? Do you think it’s anyone leading the campaign against you Would you say you're practicing civil disobedience against breaking the law or is it an opaque group?
