I knew a girl once who stole my mother's car (but it turned out okay, the insurance company bought her another car and when the police found the first one she bid on it at the wreckers and got it for back for 500 dollars. We replaced the broken window and had two nearly brand new cars).
I was mad at her for that but I was most indignant that she left two strawberry flavored 'milk to go' bottles in the back seat. That is how I knew it was her that stole the car in the first place. Strawberry milk was all she drank.
I also used to teach a simple forensics class to my science students. They all knew how to get a fingerprint off a glass or a strawberry 'milk to go' bottle.
Soon after the car was taken I invited her over and got her a drink. Then I showed her how easy it was to get a fingerprint off a glass. I brought out the first print I had taken and compared the two. Perfect match to her whirls and ridges. I should have called the cops but she ran out of the house too fast. We never brought charges because we were up two cars anyways. True story.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
