Hello everyone. I'm Liam, but I have gone by the moniker Audioworm for so long online that I prefer to keep some consistency between sites.

I'm a physicist, an atheist, a vocal sceptic, a petrolhead and a snake owner. I've been writing for quite a few years across various sites and blogs but never in a somewhat official manner. I'm looking forward to the challenge though.

I haven't really decided what I will mostly focus on but given my obsessive passion science I am sure that will encompass at least some of it (you can see my interests in my Wizzography). I've actually already had my words posted on this site as I am a friend of Jo's, and I was the aforementioned physicist roped in to explaining the Little Ice Age.

Anyway, this is just a little hello :)


Beep Boop.

Hey Audioworm! The physics section of this site has 0 articles at the moment. I'm going to be writing a few during my vacations a month or so from now and would love if you joined in writing some in that category as well :) I see Jo's already told you about it. Thanks Jo Cool

Hey Liam, welcome - I'm not a theist either.

YAYYYY A fellow gamer and a petrolhead! You rock! 'A worrying obsession for motorsports' indeed. Me too...if it has a wheel at each corner I'll watch it. I even went out with an American motorsports driver for a while, but that one petered out when 9-11 reared its head and he was unable to travel.

I am also a reluctant FBer and almost no one has the link to my page. Much prefer Twitter! Without the internet I would not have kept in touch with several dear friends, nor met my husband. That one usually shuts my mother up when she's moaning about the evils of online life.

As a (very) liberal-minded, currently non-church-going Christian who has worked with scientists, I found your paragraphs on that area very interesting. Always open for discussion if you fancy, although I am not a professional debater by any means. I'm also a very direct type with rather a short fuse. I don't suffer fools, poor customer service or lack of awareness of those around, so most of the time I'm in a right tiff about something, as it seems there are altogether too many instances of the aforementioned occurring these days.

Have to laugh at your mention of 'British Parliamentary Debating', mind, as most of the time our politicians don't debate, they mud-sling and jeer mercilessly!

As far as herpetology goes, I'm no fan of snakes but I'll read about them. Just leave other exotic pets out of things, as I am decidedly not a fan of anything which scuttles, neither of anything which has more than 4 legs.

Welcome to Wizzley! Hope you enjoy it here.

The way politicians debate both Stateside and here is embarrassing. Watching the GOP primaries was like watching Blind Date with the inane questions, and lack of follow up to their blatant bull. Even the presidential debates were painful to watch.

Snakes are my main love, but monitor lizards, geckos and tortoises all appeal to me. I'm going to end up as the weird reptile guy when I am older

My husband actually reckons that the Congressmen Stateside are way more mature than ours. As long as you stay talking about reptiles I'm OK, but the minute you bring many-legged objects into the mix, I am GONE... (yes, I'm a wuss. So help me God!)
