My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet.

My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

harishrvtharishrvt5 yIntermediate2007Not YetNoSoftware EngineerEveryday/PhotographyIndiaBangaloreOver the years excel has integrated itself way way too deep in my life .. I actually use it to document notes rather than use word, cos I feel so comfortable in the Excel GUI...

As of late , been using it a lot at work and somehow , I m the guy with the most excel experience on my floor .. while it is fun to show them little magic tricks where i get an entire day's computation done in a single day , i do often feel the need to improve my skills and explore the tool to its full potential ..

Hoping I can make use of it after I get an MBA degree (in the next 3 years)
