A diversified, multi-cultural post-modern deconstructionist; politically, anatomically and ecologically incorrect.
I've been uplinked and downloaded, I've been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of down sizing and the downside of upgrading.
I'm a high tech low life, a cutting edge state of the art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond.
I'm new wave but I'm old school; and my inner child is outward bound.
I'm a hot wired heat seeking warm hearted cool customer; voice-activated and bio-degradable.
Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, ridin' the wave, dodging the bullet, pushin the enevelope.
I'm on point, on task, on message, in the moment, on the edge, over the top, but under the radar.
A high-concept, low profile, medium range ballistic missionary.
I'm a non-beleiver and an over acheiver, laid back and fashion forward.
Up front, down home, low rent and high maintenence.
I'm super-sized, long lasting, high-definition, fast acting and built to last.

Scientists Find 405 Year Old Living Clam
Scientists have found a clam off the coast of island that may well be the world's oldest creature. The ocean quahog clam was dredged up off the coast of Iceland and using the rings on its shell researchers claim it is 405-years-old.
Named Ming, after the Ming Dynasty which ruled China when it was young, the clam is so old that during its youth Queen Elizabeth I was on the throne and Shakespeare was penning his famous works.
Professor Chris Richardson, from Bangor University's School of Ocean Sciences explained that the rings on the clam's shell provide researchers with information about growth conditions year-by-year, and so provide a record of the environmental changes during the animal's life.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the longest-lived animal was a clam found in 1982 aged 220. Unofficially, another clam - found in an Icelandic museum - was discovered to be 374-years-old, making Ming 31 years older. Link
