About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Whatever I feel like doing today
Location Ashbourne, Derbyshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I've never had money because I've never been driven by money. I received little formal education beyond the age of sixteen, which isn't such a bad thing since you get a different angle on life that way. Learning what you want and need to learn often reveals things that the system's road keeps hidden.
Interests Pressing the 'close ad' button at every opportunity, knocking confirmed liberals conservatives religionists and atheists, listening to free music on YouTube, animals - especially dogs bears and garden birds, wildlife generally, the human condition, rolling my eyes at people who claim to know what life is about, writing things, blackbirds singing in May, ironic humour, surreal humour, black humour, wit, Scotch whisky, good coffee, women with standards, rescuing small things - mostly earthworms and beetles on roads as well as wasps drowning (albeit happily) in the glass of scotch I put out for the little people on Halloween

You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?
