Hi. I am a mathematician living very near the equator. In the Spring of 2011, while not living very near the equator, I found myself infected with severe LEGO nostalgia. I used to love playing with LEGO, especially the space and pirate themes, mixing the two into an epic (as far a nine-year old is concerned) time travel saga, all the details of which have been long forgotten. Inspired by the sheer awesomeness of what I have seen on this site, I simply had to participate in no matter how small of a way.
