Spot recently chatted with Geordie . . .

Morning person or night owl?

GD: Night. I’m usually up till about 2am, as I am a late-night reader. My hobby is reading. I like biology books, history, poetry and mythology. Never fiction.

Favorite snack?

GD: French fries.

What would our readers be surprised to know about you?

GD: I collect toy robots. Large, medium and tiny ones, I started collecting as a child.

Most important message you would like to share with the world?

GD: I am a big fan of evolution by natural selection. If you are to understand anything about the world, including the people and animals in it, you will need to know about evolution by natural selection and its effect on the world.

The shoe that is so you?

Gd (laughing): Well, I really only wear my dress shoes and my old beat-up tennis shoes. I guess it would be the tennis shoes as they are what I wear at home. When I wear them I am always hoping my wife will not notice so I do not have to do anything around the house.”
