    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It would have been more accurate if it was Bangalore India instead of Seattle...

    If I were "normal" I'd probably be either a lawyer, or a university professor like my father!

    FWIW, my father was pretty far from "normal" himself. A physics and astronomy professor, Guggenheim fellow, director of what is now the NIST, and "spook" who extracted a bunch of scientists from soviet Russia during the "Cold War", and Argentina during the "Dirty War". Interesting that his best friend was a CIA operative...
