About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Amateur Phrenologist, Professional Numbskull
Location Kansas City Area, Kansas, United States
Introduction I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly. I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters, eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the Marquis de Sade blush. A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly. What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa? My secret: 1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells; 2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and 3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.

What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?

Not again! I run through enough of their webs, and have eaten several. They are never tasty.
