"Paracelsus" - are you digging up my history enshrined in some government folder THS? First Rose-Hulman, now my fraternity (AXS, the chemistry frat). We pledges had to memorise a lot of junk about Paracelcus, including his full name (Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim). To dispell the notion that we were too geeky, I must add we are the only frat I know of to ever call the cops on our own party. And after they left with the Hautian gatecrasher/.22 wielder in question (before my pledge brother could put a .45 in him, thank goodness), we continued to drink.

No John. I am merely exercising my mystic muscle (cue:Twilight Zone theme). It wasn't all personality when I was dubbed 'the witch' by my family.
