À propos de moi

CURRENT MISSION

To save the world from myself.

ABOUT ME

Officially I'm the world's only Living Saint. Even though I look like an angel, I'm actually not. In reality I'm a High Priest in the Church of Hypocrisy preaching water while guzzling wine.

When not practising Heavy Drinking For Journalists, I am working on a bestseller which will re-write the history of WWII. But not change the result.

After that I will edit the Bible into tabloid format: Did God score with a virgin? Was Jesus the first man in space? Adam & Eve - stop ribbing me. Sodom & Gomorrah - do NOT try this at home. How to turn water into wine: learn to spell.

Then I will update the Kama Sutra and correct errors in Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Everything's warped, not just time and space.

STRENGTHS: An ex-fighter pilot, astronaut, Nobel Prize/Olympic gold medal winner SICK AND TIRED OF BULLSHIT ARTISTS.

WEAKNESSES (if any): way too shy, far too modest, much too humble.

Now if that ain't practising what I preach.

PHILOSOPHY

"What good I can do, therefore let me do it, for I shall not pass this way again." French Quaker missionary Stephen Grellet.

"What we know is a drop, what we don't know is an ocean." Sir Isaac Newton

Right thoughts; respect; non-violence and non-materialism. Siddharta Guatama (Buddha)

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Recruiting for Alcoholics Anonymous.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have not got my wings yet.

Centres d'intérêt

Drinking Earl Grey tea in the morning after a hard night's drinking, reading, talking, relaxing, dreaming, sleeping, making mistakes, learning, etc etc.

Travelling the path less taken. Long-distance cycling. Avoiding work It's a complete waste of time. I've got more important things to do.

Morceaux de musique, films et livres

Eclectic:

- Great voices (Harry Secombe's arias! Maddy Prior, Elvis etc). Calming classical music. Steppenwolf's "Get your motor running." Bagpipes. The sound of railway locomotives.

- Great speeches/rhetoric (Churchill, Kennedy et al).

- Great movies ( Chaplin's "The Great Dictator").

- Great writing (Bertrand Russell on religion, Marc Aurel's "Self Reflections"; Viktor Klemperer's "LTI" (misuse of the German language in the Third Reich) etc etc

Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue

Climbed Mt Everest backwards in a wheelchair with both arms broken and no brakes.

Discovered the spice chile in Mexico before Colombus. With a tad of this atomic herb, I can eat boots, truck tyres and concrete pylons. Chile eyedrops are great too.

GREAT GURUS - EX POLISH PRESIDENT LECH WALESA

I once interviewed Lech Walesa in his Gdansk office shortly after his son had been caught unable to pay his bill in Gydnia's magnificent three-storey "Bodega" brothel. The Polish press had a field day brandishing the hilarious headline: WALESA IN BROTHEL. I asked the great Solidarity leader what he thought of prostitution.

"We must fight good with evil," said Walesa.

Walesa's non-stop barrage of legendary homespun wisdoms had got the translator so confused that she got his reply back-to-front. But even Walesa manages to confuse himself. As President of Poland, Walesa promised to cut living costs by 100%. Brilliant policy - to nothing. Against Walesa, communism never stood a chance.
