Hobbies: DC'ing (have worked with ud.com in the past; found this outfit by the lucky break of seeing Rosetta featured in Wikipedia); reading; Latin; travel; card games, esp. hearts, spades, and Texas Hold 'Em; intellectual TV to include Ancient Aliens and IRT; current events; baseball, football, soccer, and basketball; playing trivia games...
Did you know? I have never been to Nebraska, Iowa, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa; nor have I been to New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, or Nunavut; nor to any countries but the USA (duh), Canada (duh), the Bahamas, and the Netherlands Antilles (St. Maarten, Dutch side). I've not even been to Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana (the last 3 even though I live in North Carolina!) Other than that, I've been everywhere, man...
Lest you think I have any political correctness in me at all, my favorite sports teams are the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Braves (and UNC Tarheels). I also like the Kansas City Chiefs to a degree, and the Chicago Blackhawks are ok with me due to their storied history. We all need to be less PC...
Also, I'm 1/4 Hungarian, 1/16 or so Cherokee Indian, probably some German, and definitely English/Irish/Scottish. I can be a constipated limey, a neat-freak/detail-obsessed Kraut, a war-loving bohunk (UFC rocks!) or a loud mick with the best of them (note my b'day). I also hold my liquor well :)
|Your opinions about DrugDiscovery@Home|
|Sounds like a very nice project. Drug research is very interesting; I am all for better treatments. The more we know, the more we can cure.|
Beyond nature and immunological and genetic research, I am most worried about NEA's and other NEO's. We had one get within 18,000 miles, another which will pass at about that distance in 2029, and the Chelyabinsk bolide. Sounds like research can be done there, so I'll help out in those projects, too, as best I can. I hope Orbit gets some more WU's :)
Incidentally, the pretty lady you see is not I, but one Hayley Westenra. She's a classical crossover singer from Christchurch, NZ, and has perhaps the best voice on the planet today. She is the biggest entertainment act in the history of New Zealand, and worldwide is 4x platinum in total sales. Check her out. Would that she were my girl... but she's single again. Bonus :)
Vive les flops!
