I do try to live by a set of principles, and be a unique individual. I often consider myself a oddity, but as we are not all normal, I suppose we are all oddities, that being unique individuals. As a science person I guess that makes us 1 in 70 billion or is it trillion.
Just recently went to see the Star Trek Exhibit, and yes saying this means I admit I'm a nerd and a fan. I was amazed by how many different types and ages of people that were there. It was a bit awe inspiring to be connected to so many people through a single cultural phenomenon.
