He took them (and me) to Smash Burger for lunch last summer, and spent the entire time trying analyze why they "smash" the burger on the grill and what the taste/nutrition benefit of it was. I'm like "dude, just eat the burger."

Kinda reminds me of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory
Mind if I ask if he specialized in macro or micro?

In my personal experience, Ive found that homegrown Americans go on to specialize in macro while a lot more of our Asian brothers seem drawn to micro. And it's completely absurd, but I've never personally come across outliers.
