On a less serious note...

Gary, the fith child of nine, is a high school English teacher and was a lover of nerd culture before it was cool to be a lover of nerd culture.  His nerdness extends, but is not limited to:  Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The X Files, Dr. Who, reading, writing, and professional wrestling. Gary is also attempting to discover how many tattoos he can get before being reprimanded by his superiors.
