Profile Information

Introduction
IF ONE TELLS THE TRUTH , ONE IS SURE , SOONER OR LATER , TO BE FOUND OUT .

Mad , bald and dangerous to know . Long term interest in late Victorian period - in particular the 1890s literary scene . Perhaps , considering my demographic , more neo- victorian than Steampunk , but enjoy dressing the part etc. Visits to nearby Ballarat include stays at the gold rush era 'Craigs' , site of a visit by the crew of the Civil War raider ' Shenandoah' c. 1865 .

HEALTH WARNING - THE PROFESSOR IS A SCEPTIC WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ANY CONTRIBUTION HE MAY MAKE TO FORUMS SHOULD BE IGNORED !

Increasing age and infirmity may also be cited to excuse the more extreme aspects of his behavior . The title ' Professor ' was granted ( 1908 ) by Prince Hapnick of Carpania - as recorded in the Blake Edwards documentary ' The Great Race ' 1965. Further misleading details may be found in ' The Professor's Tail ' segment of ' The Automation Society . '


PATRON SAINT ( BY ACCLAMATION ) OF THE ' LEAGUE OF ECCENTRICITY ' .

Hullo!  Did you send some kind of message to me?  Because I think it deleted itself when I accepted your friendship.

Thank you for the Birthday wishes!!!

Thank you once again for the birthday wishes.

Hmmm, it seems I've accumulated quite a backlog - which could be very dangerous if I were to release all those birthdays at once! (Now there's a concept!! An evil device that causes all of the victims birthdays to arrive at once. Gad!)

Repeated thanks, and a lesson to us all!

- G.
