I was born into the waning opulence of the dying American middle class as the son of an attorney, a seamstress and several other members of a village in the Central Midlands once held in awe by Walter Cronkite.
I lived in dreams until industry went abroad and hopes could no longer sustain them.
I became a software developer but was promoted out of my bailiwick and into the fascinating arena of minor clerical duties and secretarial assignments.
I died in a terrible accident, but my living will specified that my EEG monitor be connected to a live Internet feed, whereby all my revenue-generating capabilities were eliminated by theft, waste, fraud and abuse. Since that time, my hospital bills have been paid by the Galactic Society for Global Terrestrial Dominance. (GaSfoGTerD).
Someday, I hope to evolve. Until then, my favorite quote will be:
"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality." -- Albert Einstein
