Fair enough, I can tell you that I am very open-minded...if me believing in the possibility of flying humanoids doesn't already clearly reveal me as being so!

Well, I didn't mean it like that, although I like your reasoning! I meant it as kind of a druggie weirdo who has high intelligence to waste. But like I said, I know almost nothing about him! That was only my outward impression, and judging by your response, entirely wrong...as most outward impressions tend to be. Which reminds me that I shouldn't have been so un-wise as to have expressed it in the first place!
I'll check it out...whats the first book?
