The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

Reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

I've punted on the Cam, solved differential equations and eaten scallop green curry. I've worn Roman chain mail, parallel parked and eluded my handlers in a secure facility. On a clear night, I can locate Cassiopeia. I can type without looking at the keyboard, give a great back rub, recite Jabberwocky from memory, fold a map and make export controlled munitions from ordinary playing cards. I know the difference between the observer effect and the uncertainty principal. I avoid clich├ęs like the plague. I've boarded a German submarine, criticized the Java Virtual Machine and gone ice skating in the spring. I've had trouble with Canadian customs but the Mounties haven't got me yet. I refuse to take calls from Alan Greenspan. I'm sharp but not jagged; I'm astute, articulate and alliterative. I drive too quickly and shower too slowly, but never negotiate with terrorists.


These are some of my attempts at creative writing.
