About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To save the world from myself.

ABOUT ME

Officially I'm the world's only Living Saint. I might look like an angel but I'm not. In reality I'm a High Priest in the Church of Hypocrisy preaching water and 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? Why the Cosmic Zombie in the sky nuked Sodom & Gomorrah. How to turn water into wine made easy - learn to spell properly.

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

STRENGTHS: As an ex-fighter pilot, first man on the Moon, Nobel Prize and multiple Olympic gold medal winner, I AM 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; Non-materialism. Siddharta Guatama (Buddha)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have not got my wings yet.

Travelling the path less taken. Long-distance cycling. Avoiding work. I've got better things to do with my time.

Music, Movies, and Books

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

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

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

My discovery of chile in Mexico. With this nuclear herb, I can eat boots, trucks and concrete pylons. Chile eyedrops are great too for that natural red eye look on a hot, romantic date.

GREAT GURUS - EX POLISH PRESIDENT LECH WALESA

I once interviewed Solidarity hero Lech Walesa in his Gdansk office. His son had been caught in Gydnia's magnificent three-storey "Bodega" brothel. The Polish press had a field day: 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 whacky homespun wisdoms had confused the translator so much she got his reply back-to-front. Walesa even confuses himself. Walesa promised to slash the cost of living by 100% as Polish President. Against Walesa, communism never stood a chance.
