How long does it take to master a craft? How about 80 years? Because 109-year-old Australian Alfred Date has been knitting since the 1930s and his latest/most famous endeavor was making mini sweaters... for endangered penguins!

Story
Tagline
Some say that I am an almost mythic figure in the criminal underworld.
Introduction

Some say that I am  an almost mythic figure in the criminal underworld. Many urban legends hold me responsible for pretty much every major crime or disaster this century, from the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand (even though I was only born in 1983) to spray-painting ‘VANILLA ICE IS COOL’ under the Hospital bend underpass. Unlike most urban legends, they are actually true in this case, although I am of course meticulous in that I am never linked to my crimes. I have always insisted the my only crime was an underling misunderstanding “a bit of light panic” for “sink the ship Titanic”. With the African aristocracy wrapped around his little finger and the unwashed masses quaking in fear at his very name, Jacobus van Eeden is both a master manipulator and deadly ninja.

To fund these massive plans I naturally have to hold a day job, so with some degrees under my belt I'm Social Media Relations Manager for go4word
