Hello. I am Aaron of Minneapolis. Welcome to my homepage. I was born in 1982 and I live in a southwestern suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. I like Star Trek, science, history, math, Robert E. Howard's stories, Isaac Asimov's science essays, and The Sims. I hope you like what I have here.

Evidence for Jury-Rigged Design in Nature.

The Amazing "Send Me A Dollar" Website. If you feel like it, you can send this guy $1 (cash via snail mail, or through PayPal!), and receive absolutely nothing for your non-tax-deductable donation. :-) Also contains comments from people who sent in dollars, and a rated list of other "send me money" sites. An amusing site, worth a visit.

AssMan's Internet Poopstain. My brother's website. WARNING! Not work safe! Also, my brother used to play bass in a small rock band with two of his friends, called Fustigated. Warning! This site not for the easily offended!

The Science Museum of Minnesota. My local science museum, located in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. They have dinosaurs, human body gallery, hands-on experiments, an Omnitheater/IMAX thrater, and more. They moved into a great new building on the riverfront in late 1999, so if you're ever in town, feel free to check it out.
