I'm not really Basil Hallward, he's a character in the Oscar Wilde story "A Picture Of Dorian Grey." The reason for doing the name change and using a very old picture is a private joke. My name is Ian Thorpe, Ian R Thorpe to distinguish me from the Australian swimmer, I retired from a career in Information Technology a few years ago and now spend my time writing and creating internet content. And the picture, from 1983? In the story, the eponymous Dorian Gray never looks any older, while the picture of him painted by Basil Hallward ages. And in the online world I never get any older so it's oappropriate that my avatar shows the person I feel I still am. Age, when all's said and done, is a state of mind. .

"Functional Paranoia" Its not just a mindset, its a way of life.* The Apocalypse News Network was established to report on the very scientific and political developments that will bring society to a flaming apocalyptic end. Will our space endeavors attract an Alien Invasion? How long till our computers give rise to an Artificial Intelligence rebellion? And could our biological tinkering Animate the dead to overrun the Earth? The only certainty is that we are all going to die ... Might as well die laughing. ____________________________________ Supporters huhwhtfkrmore @huhwhtfkr x10 starhammer @starhammer x4 MajicSamurai @MajicSamurai x4 馃挕PEANUT馃挕 @Kbug68 x5 Abdias @abdias_01 x3 gangstermailsexy @gangstermailsexy x7 delastman @delastman x11 dpl @DirkLoots x10 饾棢饾棞饾棔饾棫饾棓饾棩饾棗饾棙饾棗 | 馃嚭馃嚫 @Libtarded x 5 ConserveTruth @ConserveTruth x3 Jim @Jim270 x5 erkkiP @erkkiP x3 JustAnotherVoluntaryist @JustAnotherVoluntaryist x5 TimLnu @TimLnu x3 饾晹饾暀饾晼饾暏饾暏 饾晹饾晵饾暐 @chesschats x4 TheDreamKeeper @TheDreamKeeper x3 apoCALypse art @TN931 x3 Cmd.

An independent, somewhat misanthropic autodidact. I鈥檝e seen the underbelly of society and it disgusts me. Another day gone and another day closer to moving to an extremely rural location.
