Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
In Sweden, as in America, there are many jokes about blond people being stupid. Apparently, this is a well known fact (I am allowed to say that, since I am blond too) in Germany too. I wanted to buy this t-shirt that says: "Sprech langsam - ich bin Blond" ("Speak slowly, I am blond"), but sadly we had to work all the hours this shop was open.
