This was my reply-

Seriously man, no one on the planet has all those skills and if they did they’d be working for NASA on 1000 pounds/day.

In retrospect, let’s make that about 10,000 UK pounds/day. In fact, the only person I think comes near this amount of brain power is Doctor Hanz Zarkov “formerly of NASA”, and he’s mad.
