I emigrated to Baltimore from Birmingham, England.  I loved Baltimore...still do.  I can't believe what I'm watching on the boob tube..what triggered this idiocy was barbaric enough, why are these bozos so intent on soiling their own nest? And why are the local politicians LETTING THEM? Did the IQ of the City plummet 100 points since my last visit?  Get the parents to put their punks to bed, and start acting like Baltimoreans..not BaltiMORANS! I was proud to live in Baltimore..this lot are an embarrassment to their City and the State.
And crikes, I'm reading this stuff in a British newspaper!

Apologies, but as a historic archaeologist who used to work in Washington D.C....this struck me as so funny and ACCURATE,  it might be seen as reality, and end up in many textbooks!  Hope it received wide distribution to those on Capital Hill!  Many thanks to those at The Onion.  You always make my day.

Actually it DOES make me homesick, LOL. I don't even know if Aston Hall has been preserved. Certainly hope so.

Why is this a necessary component of "Social Media"?
Introduction
Professional Forensic and Medical Anthropologist.  Historical Archaeologist and Historian..European and Colonial North America (love those Mountain Men!)  Archival addict - love the smell of mildew in the morning.  It smells like..history and knowledge! Science and technical writer. Lobbyist when necessary - there's nothing more fun than embarrassing a politician with his/her own words :). Enjoy tracking futures and business trends. Alas, I lack the funds to indulge in such frivolities :) Love Statistics - the switch of a single variable can change how we interpret and view so many things. Love the Shock of the New. Love to travel. Love my family. Love England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France. South America.  Dinna ken wha am still  'ere.

Currently focused on the hypothalamus, a tiny organ (not the Wurlitzer kind) which regulates most everything in the human body, and when slightly damaged, causes an amazing array of physiological, physical and behavioral problems. Why are there so few medical researchers interested in this magical, majestic, yet miniature organ in the brain?
Where are the long-term studies conducted on patients who underwent stereotactic hypothalamotomies?  Why do the drugs used to prevent seizures, drain the body of D3? Used to think genetic flippers were triggered randomly. Not anymore.  

If we are the dominant species on this planet, why are we so intent on killing each other? 
That's what bacteria, viruses and disease are for, to keep life on the planet in balance. If you understood how unique every individual life genuinely IS, you'd wonder why we tolerate, and even condone barbaric and idiotic behaviors towards each other.  Oops...OK.  I sincerely apologize to any barbaric idiots reading this. I don't want Zeus tossing lightning   bolts  at me for being politically incorrect.  

Well, if you ARE still reading this, you're either brave, have nothing better to do, or having a big laugh. Hope its the latter. 

Prefer my History, like my whiskey, straight and neat, without little umbrellas and strange chemical additives.  Truth seems unpopular and rare these days, but when we water it down for popular consumption, critical lessons are lost.  If we want to continue as a species, we must never forget those nasty bitsESPECIALLY NOW.   Happily, there are more good bits than nasty bits.

Bad habits - read too many journals, search for answers to questions no one cares about, accept people as they are, and volunteer when I should be paid. I also have a library, with genuine books. Books are quite sensual, and there's a feeling of accomplishment, when you turn a page.  Video games are boring.  Except Tetris. Homo Sapiens are social and tactile mammals... why did we waste millions of years evolving only to sit in a chair gaze at a computer? 

Gave up on television, except if it's tuned to Formula 1 racing, the Baltimore Orioles, or the Baltimore Ravens...or something on the History or Science Channels.  And.. um..RiffTrax, aka MST3K. Don't tell.

Love to fly, love to sail, love trains, love Tall Ships.  Love the scent of soil at dawn, the spray of the ocean, and cold winter nights when you can actually see the night sky.  Always on-the-look for old maps, and discovering small, out-of-the-way museums. 

I wasn't born here, but I did become a citizen. I TOOK A CLASS! I TOOK AN EXAM! I WENT TO A CEREMONY AND WAS LEGALLY SWORN IN AS A CITIZEN WITH 300 OTHER PEOPLE!   WE WERE GIVEN LITTLE FLAGS O WAVE!  WE DID EVERYTHING... LEGALLY!   No, it wasn't fun or easy, BUT AT THE TIME, I WAS PROUD TO DO IT.  Now...I'm not quite sure why I bothered.

What's my Sign? Why do people ask me this? It's red and round, and says ALTO.  My other sign hangs on my front door, and says "No Solicitors."  

Back to reading my BOOK.  Please log off, and go for a walk.
