See What Happens (Schau'n mer mal...)
Electronics is the art of commanding electrons and electromagnetic waves to do what you want them to do. It is an art because electrons and waves tend to not obey, otherwise it would be a science. (himself)
For more details see Intro to Radar and a couple of entries linked from there... Earned me another badge
I'm driving tremendous amounts of kilometres on Autobahns in Germany. I am fond of M.C. Escher's Graphics (aaaah, Tesselations), Weizenbier (mmmh, and Weizenbock) and Mike Oldfield (nothing beats QE2 and Amarok could well play in an endless loop).
I have come to terms now with contact lenses, have limited abilities in ventriloqism and I am addicted to pizza and surfing (the internet variety), sometimes also to garlic. I'm living in Munich, I can wiggle my ears and independently move eyebrows and knee caps. And no, I'm not a cannibal!
Well, this happened to be a nickname at school time. There's no particular meaning associated with it whatsoever! At least not what you might be thinking. But... there's more about the Bossoleon Empire further below.
The *Sir* was bestowed on me by the AGG/GAG folk. I was somewhat reluctant in the beginning but then... I wouldn't get a chance to become a Sir in RL, would I? Actually, I'm a Member of the Board!Board Members:AGG/GAG-homepage~jwf~Tonsil Revenge=X Subcom.DeidzoebMartinSpiffBosselHobbesZaphodShazz PRMEThe h2g2PostTeam
I'm a Scout
I might or might not carry the more meaningful Scout badge appendix around...
Scouting is fun but eats up lots of time. There's a good chance of meeting me in Peer Review. For some further background you may want to read A View From A Scout . For some more background, you may also read this piece from a few days ago: h2g2 feedback.
Find a colleague here:
Plans for tomorrow include a whole lot of things. At least I have managed to sign in to the Royal h2g2 Procrastinator's Society. If you could find some time, say, next week, why not sign in there as well?
Keeper of Quietsche-Entchen
Yeah, those beautiful rubber-duckies! They were built to last. Ships have wrongly been called unsinkable, but Quietsche-Entchen are. You're never alone with a rubber duckie . Why do I talk about them? I am the official Keeper of rubber duckies!
Yeah! I've pondered the question very long, but after stumbling over a conversation which contained 21 postings, of which 20 were *****ed on the grounds that they were written in German, the decision was made. I'm going to join the Zaphodista, full stop!!
All's Bosselish In The Bossoleon Empire!
Maybe you'd like to join me...
on the beach at Bosselcun...
and sip a little cactus juice...
but don't get drunk too soon...
There's much to view and do my love...
before the sun has set...
the show is just beginning...
giving no cause for regret...
We'll sing and dance and play awhile...
until the moon comes up...
then snuggle by the Bosselfire...
and empty someone's cup...

Bosselshire is a lovely little county in the English Midlands. The renowned Bosselford University recently announced major breakthrough in the field of Bossel-Einstein Condensation research, and the Bosselhenge observatory collects imagery of Bosselnovas in deep space. Bosselshire has close ties with the county of Bosselsex where Bossel's court resides in the city of Bosseldon. Inhabitants mostly feed on Bosselmatos and Bosseltatoes. The main harbour is Bosselsmouth which is the home port of the Bosselmada.
Because Bosselshire and Bosselsex are mindbosseling pieceful and easy to reign, Sir Bossel quite often finds the time to sail abroad and do some, er..., research for the Bosseloneon Geographic Institute. Favourite destinations are the holiday islands of Bosselhiti and of course, the Bosselhamas. If you've ever seen Bosselitas dancing Bosselhoola then you know why! Pastimes on Bosselhiti Island are Bosseluba diving and watching the sun set behind Bosselnut trees on Bosselcabana Beach. These islands and the Great Bossel Reef off the shores of Bosstralia form the Bosselmuda Triangle, which is where many a ship of the Bosselmada has gone lost forever in one of those disastrous Bosselnados.
A Poem: The Dead Swans
The dead swans lay in the stagnant pool
They lay, they rotted, they turned
Bits of flesh dropped off them from time to time
and sank to the pools mire
They also smelt a great deal
From Vogon and other Poetry
Ever wanted to be granted a medal? I bet you wouldn't want a Darwin's Award!
Well, if a Darwin's Award is not your kind of thing, then how about going for a H2G2 Wilde Award? This award is bestowed on h2g2 researchers who have shown outstanding capabilities in wisd-, er..., witdom and eloquence!
The Haiku Challenge! and the other Haiku Challenge!!!!. Wonder what a Haiku is? Easy: read the Haiku entry or simply write a poem with only one rule to follow: a topic is covered in three lines which have 5, 7, and 5 syllables each. That's it! . Want some examples? Here you go:
