About This Blogger (Old)

.: I began life as a zygote, or, at the very least, as a comparatively smaller collection of atoms than what comprises my physical existence today. I managed to ensnare additional molecules and place them under the ruthless dominion of my being, and over time I became what I am today: a complex repository of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, sodium, calcium, phosphorous, sulfur, potassium, manganese, iron, zinc, and several other elements. Although many other clusters throughout the galaxy contain roughly the same mass and proportion of these materials, none of them are organized quite the way mine are, and that makes me feel not only good about myself but also inherently superior.

.: I am the youngest child of four and by many accounts the most successful — this despite not having actually accomplished anything. I grew up in two separate households for the first decade or so of my life and escaped the experience with numerous stories of varying hilarity. When I was five months old, my father divorced my mother to marry another woman who divorced her husband who eventually married my mother. This impacted each child differently. (For instance, my sister’s understanding was that all divorces involved remarriage between the two parties, while I grew up without ever acquiring a working definition of “normal.”)

.: I went to three different high schools in four years, and my freshman and senior years were spent at the same high school. I start my junior year at Baylor this fall, where I may or may not be arrested before graduation. I’m not known for doing bad or illegal things, which can mean two different things if read properly, and I’m generally considered to be a nice guy.

.: Most of my day goes unused, especially during the summer when I am working. I read a lot, which, thanks to the inconsistent conventions of the English language, does not mean what I want it to mean. I shall have to rewrite the sentence to include what should be a redundancy: I read a lot in the past.

.: These days I don’t read that much, but that’s starting to change again thanks to Librivox and Apple.

.: I’m a student of biology and chemistry, but not physics. I find science in general and evolution in particular to be more fascinating than any other academic subject in the world, which is a pretty foolish claim since I’m not familiar with the vast majority of other subjects.

.: I threatened to burn my neuroscience professor at the stake and for my troubles received an A in the course. The semester after that I scored my lowest GPA yet and was rewarded with an additional scholarship. I am the only student I know of who is simultaneously on academic probation and the Dean’s List.

.: I will suffer fools quietly but complain at great length once they leave. I’ve been known to wrestle cripples (and win). I see no point in making one’s bed. I tend to walk in straight lines. I photoshop with a track pad. I collect root beer bottles. I get frequent cold sores. I use pens on crossword puzzles.

.: I am exceedingly ticklish.

    Hey Cody-
    Just stopping in pay my respects. Great to see that you’re still at it (blogging that is). Give me a call if ever you’re back in our old neck of the woods.

  7. Zeno says:

    I get frequent cold sores, too. It’s not exactly life’s greatest curse, but … dammit!

    I wonder if it’s connected to using pens on crossword puzzles.

  8. Simon the Swede says:

    Great stuff! Keep it up.

  9. Bill Seeley says:


    Your blog was the first hit for my google of “Russell’s Law”. The results were to be included in an email to a friend re another blog entitled “Was Petreus Borked?” – please bear with me – I will eventually get to the point!.

    35 or so years ago, on the cutting edge of CMC (“computer mediated communications”), some long forgotten Russell (he seems to have been completely ignored by the medium he warned us about (but come to think of it, that makes sense)) coined the phrase:

    “Never send anything in an email that you don’t want appearing in tomorrow morning’s headline of the New York Times, attributed to you.”

    (I’m not kidding, I was there. But I don’t think you can “look this up”. Does that mean it’s no longer knowledge?).

    This “hit” (i.e. your blog entry on the ASCII string “Russell’s Law”) does not appear to me to be a coincidence. While its non-relevance to the sad Petreus and his paramour(s) might be obvious, I find the fact that I am a completely confirmed advocate of ID, like you a relatively rara avis, to be highly relevant. My bona fides including slogging through the absolutely brilliant “Signature in the Cell”, not to mention the absolutely boring, but nonetheless equally devastating “What Darwin Got Wrong”, as well as innumerable other pro-ID and anti-ID tomes. To have “randomly” stumbled upon your alternate definition of “Russell’s Law” first (as opposed to the Urban Dictionary’s “A law that states that all women are bisexual to some degree”) is remarkable. Not quite as astounding as the probability that DNA spontaneously arose from water, air, and rocks, but highly interesting nonetheless. As one of my favorite priests, Fr Joe Breighner of the Baltimore Archdiocese, would say: “There are no coincidences …”.

    Thanks and keep up the good work,
