Yum ... imaginary fried food. No cholesterol, more flavourful then rice crackers and no calories! The perfect snack food and it's shaped like a boat!

Really boring. My name's Federico Vendrell. It was too long to use as a nickname, so FedeV.

I've had tons of nicknames on and offline, but as I grow older I find that I prefer to be called by my name... keep it simple, etc.

Mine's from my former working life. I was a researcher using Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) in my research. Maybe I should think up a new nautical one, but then I'd have to remember more than one!

My other money-sucking but soul-enriching vice, another way to get the wind in myface, is my Harley, a 1997 Dyna Wide Glide, a 97fxdwg.

Did you know that Einstein was the originator of this joke? He told it at the Solvay Conferences. It went something like, "The space-time continuum flys like a steel ball rolling on a rubber sheet but Drosophila melanogaster like a banana." Sadly the auditorium was dead quite except that Neils Bohr could not stop laughing. Later, Neils was having dinner with Groucho and he retold the joke but Groucho didn't get it. After a couple of bottles of wine and much explanation Groucho was heard to exclaim, "Waiter, what's this fly doing in my soup?", but that's a story for another time.

Ah, in school they said some wouldn't get my humour because I was an idiot savant ... actualy they said people didn't get my jokes because I was an idiot but the savant bit just sounds so classy.

I was reading the forum and wanted to answer somebody's question. in order to do it they required me to sing in, so I used my boat name.
By the way, she's named after my daughter, my hijITA.

I am a wonderer, One day while sitting on the beach near the dunes I was watching the sand blow and form ripples and waves on the dunes just to be removed and replaced with the next gust of wind. Yhis movement reminded me of myself, here for awhile then gone, just like a grainofsand.
