Braincake

There's cheesecake, there's mancake, and then there's what I like to call braincake.  Smart people.  I like them.

We heard one of them speak last week.


Here he is with my favorite author, Hugh Howey, who is also braincake.


Here I am next to my favorite author.


Can't find me? I'll crop in a little bit.


So you've heard of Bacon numbers, right?  (How many degrees one is from Kevin Bacon.)  So if there were Tyson numbers, mine would be 2.

Who's your braincake?  Who do you admire for their smarts?

Totally Tyson! And before him, one of my heroes was Carl Sagan.

Oooooh...what a thrill to meet a personal hero! And I do like that phrase you've coined: "Braincake.' Nice.
