A large, mobile intelligent unit. Full of scorn, venom and really good chili recipes. Fan of all sorts of contradictory and possibly deeply flawed things, e.g. music of Robert Fripp and Sun Ra; novels of Ayn Rand, John LeCar.re and Douglas Adams; art of M.C. Escher and Magritte; ideas of Richard Dawkins, Douglas Hofstadter, Daniel Dennett and many others. Renowned beer drinker of refinement and even moderation (but let's not get carried away with moderati.on).
