of course it also means that you'll be bald by the age of 34 and start wearing strange trousers.

Does anyone know of a good website where you can get advice about painless suicides?

Fantastic topic, get to talk about ME! Hehe, where do I begin... erm yeah, I was born in Sheffield during the not-so-great depression of 1980. Growing up on a diet of coal and poached badger my family relocated to Mablethorpe, the jewel in the crown of the Skegvegas coast, when I was so young even Michael Jackson wouldn't have batted an eyelid. During my formitive years in Lincolnshire I developed my first taste for fast cars, alcohol and illegal narcotics. After spawning a handful of A-Levels from the local Grammar (read respectable postcode) school I emigrated to university in Bangor, Wales, where I read Zoology and added mountain biking, climbing and sexual deviency to my list of vices. 4 years of rain and soggy sheep later I went on to do an MSc in Biological Photography and Imaging at Nottingham University (they'd never have had me as an undergrad). Now I'm running a new media company out of Long Eaton, and run away to the countryside every chance that I get.

33, accused by many of permanent studentdom, but in reality hard at work.

I have in the past 15 years worked as: a wine merchant, a cruise photographer in the Caribbean, Business Development Manager for Oxford Scientific Films, a clinical trials manager, an avian ethologist for National Parks in Zimbabwe, a game guide (jeep jockey to those that know - lowest kind!), and a builder (with added character in every build).

Suffer from short attention span!

Along the way I have aquired a couple of degrees (Zoology in Wales same as Lee - Swansea for me though!), an MSc in IPM and most of a PhD. PhD is taking a while, mainly due to the fact that I keep being asked to do work for people! Recent jobs have taken me across half the world and I am getting sick of airline food. Specialise in vector control, so quite satisfying to know that the work I do helps peoples standard of living.

Also managed to convince the most gorgeous woman in the world to marry me a couple of years ago (only took 7 years of living together!). One cat, one horse, and a loud ticking noise whenever I get home from a trip ;o)

Oh yes, photography. Mainly take pictures for myself but also some for work. Sooooo satisfying when it comes together properly. Really enjoy the site and find it a constant source of advice and inspiration. No real ambition to try and be anything other than a happy amateur - far too busy to give it the attention it deserves! Huge respect for those that do it for a living. Just switched to digital (10D), but I have to admit that I am not a fan of big digital manipulation. It's a great skill in itself, but the ability to capture the original photo is what does it for me.

Hello Anne,

"Who am I?" is the first question asked on the path to enlightenment.

Many, however, simply say what they do and tend to identify themselves with the external aspects of their lives, rather than look inward. Who we "really are" is getting into "Zen" philosophy. We are "no thing" is the answer, but being able to truly believe that takes many years of meditation and self-exploration.

I don't know who I am - yet. I can only tell you what I do. To answer that question, is very simple - I do very little, and am just an ordinary guy with no particularly outstanding qualities. That's as honest an answer as I can give at this time.

iain. Smile
