About this card: shot putI used to be quite the athlete back in high school though I had a far less restrained conception of 'competitive' than other students. I probably would have gone pro if the lawyers hadn't shown up talking legalese and waving restraining orders around. Forced into retirement early I guess. Doctors said that sport wasn't for me. Minor ankle injury and a penchant for lighting fires. Whatever.
@JonnyGeller Tim Allen is also former drug dealer; caught with 650g of cocaine he ratted out 21 colleagues. Not a terribly nice individual.
The Theory of the Leisure Class, Thorstein Veblen. Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam. Tigerman by Nick Harkaway. It's a fun list.
I'm in the south of Spain making a list of the next hundred books I want to read. The most immediate: The Silk Roads, by Peter Francopan.
