I knew all the raw materials, main exports, tourist attractions, GPD.s population, agricultural, native animals etc. Of every country on the globe by the time I was about 9. Nothing on their politics except communist or not.

I remain obsessed with numbers and finding ways to use numbers to reflect various social premises I am equally obsessed with.

Outwardly I lead a pretty normal life and have always been active socially even when I felt I was faking it.
