"We are a collective geezer." Uffish, to Katya

About Frère Rubik:

"You're a good guy, mon frère. That means 'brother' in French. I don't know why I know that; I took four years of Spanish!" -G.O.B., Arrested Development

That pretty much sums up the nym.


Frère Rubik is a writer from Utah who has not been as active on the Board as he would like recently. He's keeping the reference to the joke about liking long walks along the Provo Beach Resort, because it becomes increasingly more obscure every time he re-writes his bio. He has strong opinions about people who try to make their own right-turn lanes when he is turning left and block his vision of the road, making things unsafe and Mad Max-ian. He is an amateur pizza chef, and is always frustrated with his crust before it goes in the oven (and usually fine with it when it comes out). He holds the distinction of being the only Board writer to have married Vienna, and he successfully defeated Chris Pratt in a taco eating contest to do so (true story). If he had a hammer, he'd hammer in the evening, but he doesn't think his hammering in the morning all over this land would be very much appreciated, so he would refrain.
