US Engineering student Seth Schneider innocently posted up a picture of himself, taken while bored during the recent Hurricane Matthew lockdown, which instantly went viral, racking up over 150,000 retweets

And what was it? This:

What say you Seth?

Fair point Seth. More questions followed, deftly answered by our newest hero.
