I cannot write in English, because of the treacherous spelling. When I am reading, I only hear it and am unable to remember what the written word looks like."

I'm a lizard. I absorb sun-light so I have the energy to catch and eat bugs, and I catch and eat bugs so I won't be hungry while I'm basking in sunlight.

My raison d'etre is a drive to discover as much about the world that I live in as possible.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

Ory nailed it.

But seriously, I want my life to touch other lives. Social work. I still have to find my flavour of social help.

To have fun, and do interesting things.
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact." - Carl Sagan

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.
