I was born in Australia … but to be honest there’s something(s) about it I’ve never really liked. That was ok at first because like everyone else, I was ignorant to the truth of my own country, and the good parts made up for the bad (most of which I was blissfully unaware of).
But this is no longer the case, and no longer good enough anyway. Although I hate to leave, because the countryside itself is beautiful, I just seriously doubt Australia will ever appreciate & support me properly, as it has utterly failed me to date. To be honest I have doubts about this entire planet, but I haven’t met any aliens I’m aware of who can take me somewhere less insane.
Anyway, so I thought I’d offer myself for adoption … here’s what’s on offer:
- 45 year old male, 6’4″ tall
- Born in Australia, but descended (mostly) from Scandinavians (Vikings) and Celts
- Philosophically speaking I’m an amphi-agnostic-atheist-anarchist-artist-hedonist-scientist-Jedi
- … though I haven’t had anywhere near enough opportunity for the hedonism
- 20+ years of combined formal & informal tertiary level study & research (but no degree)
- 25+ years worth of unexploited invention & ideation, waiting for opportunity to express
- The kind of ally who will fight for you if you’re worth it
In return I need the following:
- A stable home with plenty of room for a Wookie sized person like myself & my interests
- Genuine interest in developing my ideas & inventions on terms I find acceptable
- Enough income to pursue my interests, including the musculoskeletal rehab I need
Seriously, as much as I’ll miss certain things, I’ll leave Australia and give my intellect to a country that actually appreciates it if the offer is good enough … because Australia thinks people like Malcolm Turnbull are smart, and that makes me weep.
