Some Random Facts About Me

Here are some random facts about me that not many people know:

  • I was born with a tooth, and it was pulled when I was one day old. My parents' dentist was just out of school and came to the hospital. He was my dentist for over 40 years and just retired a couple of years ago. It's genetic, as my niece was born with a tooth also.
  • I'm very shy, quiet and reserved when people get to know me. I'm told how mellow and calm I am, but on the inside I'm the most intense person I know.
  • I learned to read and write at an early age. I was reading encyclopedias when I was four, and I catalogued my parents record collection when I was five. My childhood IQ was something like 185, and I skated through school on brain power alone. It wasn't until my upper division work in Chemical Engineering at Berkeley that I even needed to study. With no study habits ever learned, it was too late. I dropped out after three years and later became an architect.
  • I jog two miles every day.
  • I'm a European mutt, being parts: English, Irish, Swiss, Lithuanian, German and Swedish.
  • I'm a direct descendant of a slave in the Colonial South.

  1. Very interesting - the school thing - I was very much the same until university - and I was born in a car (must be something about having an anomalie at birth that helps - lol).
