To discover why nobody has invented a motorbike with breasts
Right then, this is the part where I talk about myself without the aid of a sofa and an internet qualified shrink. A little different to what I'm used to but nothing I can't handle.
I'm a regular guy from London who loves dogs, festivals, cheap jewellery, bubble wrap, occasional raves, bright colours, riding my motorbike at night with Underworld's 'Dark & Long' playing in my ears, foreign food, people who cook me foreign food, a good biro...
I don't like to travel and I'm not open minded.
I can never resist a good bungee jump and my two ambitions in life is to gain a skydiving license, which I've got already - I should really update this, and to touch a great white shark - without getting my arm ripped off. My aim in life is to create as many new and diverse memories as I can so when I'm an old man sitting on a rocking chair out on the porch and my equally old companion sitting next to me asks, 'What did you get up to in your young days?' I'll be able to give him an answer that will cause the poor bugger to have a cardiac arrest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
With my fingers and a computer is generally how I get the ball rolling.
Ah yeah, it's going pretty good at the mo. I could chew your ears off here, but you can just read the references left on my page.
But it's been great, lovely people they all are.
My typical interest is 14.9% - some say I single handily caused the global financial crisis...
Leaping out of planes is always a giggle. I got a skydive licence see, which is a bit like James Bond's licence to kill, only much better. I like to write too. I'm a sarcastic little bugger at the best of times and try to write things that make me laugh - this would be black humour then. I blog cos I have the memory of an Alzheimer's sufferer on the morning of a hangover.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies I like to illegally download have well shot original scripts or have some great performances by its often underpaid actors, you know, cos of the illegally download thing. And foreign movies, by which I mean non UK / US films, cos they throw up some great stuff without much recognition coming off it.
Rock during the day, Metal when I'm writing, Acid Techno when the sun goes down. And then rises again. And then for quite some time after that. Music happens to greatly effect my mood as it goes. Stick me in a bar / club with shite music and I'm confident within myself to stand still on the dance floor. I'll leave the conforming to others. My sanity will only take so much however, and eventually I will excuse myself to 'go for a walk'. unfortunately, this tends to be most bars these days!
Sven Hassel is pretty good, but you probably don't know him. He's a Danish guy who fought for the Nazi's in a penal regiment. His books are faction and bloody funny. Dark, black humour - odd reading cos you're rooting for him and his Nazi mates as they do their war thing.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In South Africa I went to a pub that was inside a boabab tree. That's inside the actual tree - I had to see it to believe it. It's the biggest boabab tree in the world, 26 metres in diameter and over 6000 years old. I think.
Falling through clouds is pretty awesome. I'm thinking it must be a bit like how Tony Montana feels when he plants his face into a heap of cocaine in the movie Scarface. I really ought to go to Central America and make the comparison... anyroad, back on the topic. Flying through clouds dude, there really is no other feeling and is impossible to describe without a smile growing on my face. I'm even grinning as I type this...
After spending nine days trekking to Mount Everest, I went about whooping which caused a deep rumbling avalanche somewhere on Everest or one of its neighbors. Whilst I send my condolences to the families of any trekkers I might have wiped out, you gotta admit causing a Himalayan avalanche is pretty fucking cool.
