mission drive within everything
To create a loyal following who will come to worship me as the all knowing master. Then I can forge a fanatical army which will sweep me to the position of absolute ruler of the planet. Then, only then shall I reveal my true, dark purpose....perfectly normal for a healthy young lad.
specialties
Ancient History, Theology, Obscure but brilliant Operating Systems. Fantasy- the type with elves and Wizards of course not the other type! Science Fiction, RPGs. The destruction of that demonic green orb: the Sprout.
school/company
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Sprout
motto
Truth Until Paradox.....or at least until I get a headache

Not Constructive= "That's rubbish, you heathen, you will burn in hell..." etc.

My contributions over the past few years have been peicemeal. There is a good reason for this- I've never managed to obtain my own internet connection, so its always been a case of what I can grab. This is now compounded by the fact that I don't even own a computer anymore (DOH!). I can't even type things up in advance for when I can nick some time on a work computer. Grrr
