Hello all.

Likes; kittens, bears, tigers, really milky tea, windy weather, jaffa cakes, and not doing computer simulation of polymers in a poor solvent using the MonteCarlo method.
Dislikes; the opposite of the above.

I keep some of my pictures here. Have a look if you like kittens.

This is my octapuss. It doesn't bite.

I'm at Cambridge Uni, doing a PhD. This is me:

at a party. Not my usual attire. Or skin tone.

Spider monkeys
Me watching nature programs on TV with GF.

HER: Why are they called spider monkeys?
ME: Because they've got eight arms.
HER: Really?

pause while she counts.

HER: No they haven't.

I can't resist saying things like that. I am a bad person.

» Posh

Me posh
Educated at Oxford(undergrad) and Cambridge(PhD) universities. Commodore of the sailing club at the latter, played a bit of cricket for college.

Are you picturing deck shoes, chinos, pink shirt and cricket sweater thrown casually around the shoulders? Yes?

However, I'm from a small village near Barnsley, have a yorkshire accent, and am currently wearing my darts team shirt and boardshorts (I surf/windsurf, and have never been in a sailing boat in my life). I don't own any pink shirts or cricketing attire. You can't polish a turd!

» Toilets

poo break
Some friends and myself had driven to morocco, (dover-calais and straights of gibraltar being the exceptions) to windsurf at a beach called moulay, big clean waves and strong wind.

Sleeping in the vans, we had no toilet facilities. Luckily however, the fierce sea had worn 1ft wide, deep holes into rock, making convenient natural toilets with a drop into the sea or sand. These were cleaned out every high tide, as if by design. This was useful, as moroccan food can sometimes be a bit suspect.

However, the rock toilets were situated downwind and downwave, so anyone making a mistake would get sucked into the toilet area, known as "poo break"

Sadly, I don't have any pictures of these amazing natural toilets, so you'll have to imagine. If you can be arsed.

» Stupid Tourists

Tourists in Cambridge
The stupidist thing I've heard them say is "oooowwwwwwwwww" a lot. This is because they don't tend to look when crossing the road and so get run over by bikes. Retards.

Also asking to see the university. And beliving all the crap the punt guides tell them.
