This guy is Napoleon Solo and Illya Kyiakin and James Bond and Bruce Waynevich all rolled into one. In my perfect world we would have video wrist watches so that I could consult with him on how best to crush my enemies whenever the need arises.
He is as close to 'the most interesting man in the world' that we get to. Ex-KGB who puts the fear into his opponents with just a look. I can work with a magnificent bastard like that. I love that he has all this mythology about him that may or not be the truth. I choose to believe that every word is true and then some.
When he was Russia's leader he had access to all the information about the 'secret history' of the world - the truth without the cover-up and bias. Can you imagine what he must know or suspect? Thinking about the 'tech' he must have in his own 'Cave of Cool' just about makes my head explode.
I have personally seen how the mere mention of his name will clear a bar room full of cephalopods. From octopus to cuttlefish, they are scared inkless of him.
Check out this Lenin headed killer robot that he can activate at his whim. Just badass.
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.
