I stop reading article after the part where it said the writer was a Chelsea fan.

but to go with the flow, I could have been a graphic designer but I had to draw the line somewhere.

I studied to be a parasitologist but ended up as a banker, so it all worked out well in the end.

Actually I'm glad I studied Parasitology. Not only for the base-'medical' element, but because parasites are pretty damned amazing. The ultimate adapters, so it was fascinating too.

No way you can be a Creationist (not that I ever was) after going through that: What God created nematode worms that only exist in the sodden beer-mats at the Munich beer festival? .... I dooooon't think so! :o :P
