About Me A survivor of the British underclass & a survivor in the sense of psychobabble labeling because I'm mentally "different". Passionate advocate for victims of selfish materialism and worse. Physically, short & unprepossessing. Preferring the company of animals to that of most human beings yet in awe of the great thinkers, scientists, artists, writers and such of history.
