Random Thought... I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but they never find him. And you know why? It doesn't say. The book leaves it up to the reader to decide. Then, at the very end, there's a page you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid.
Nunzio Fartalone was not "born" in any literal sense. He was "spawned". Extensive carbon dating of Nunzio's tissues at the Berkeley Institute (Anthropology department) places his spawning at roughly 2.7 billion years ago, during the
(Precambrian) period. Here is a
Chart of Geological Time
detailing Nunzio's evolution. Nunzio was bacterial in nature at the beginning of his development and the atmosphere consisted of methane, ammonia, and other gases which would be toxic to most life on our planet today. Even today Nunzio retains much of the original and horribly foul methane gas from the Archaean period in his body tissues. That is why he is always considerate of others and "farts alone" (as his last name fully implies). Eventually, Nunzio evolved, developed rudimentary lungs, and started breathing oxygen. Nunzio doesn't age the same way as the rest of humanity does. By our standards he is ancient. But by his reckoning he is still a child (and acts as such). So from this point onward, when we refer to Nunzio as a child, that reference is from Nunzio's perspective. You will see another reference to Nunzio below indicating an age of 4 years. In reality, add a few billion more to that.
Nunzio "grew up" in the Bronx and later moved to Freeport, New York. Since May 1998 (after an alien abduction), he has been living in the
(part of the Martian lowlands), where many of the largest volcanoes of Mars are located. Situated next to the Tharsis Ridge is
, a very long canyon of Mars.
When time permits, Nunzio travels to the canyon's edge and contemplates life and...
alien anal probes
...as he takes in the scenery.
As a child, Nunzio would torment other children of his age as well as younger ones. There was one instance where he attempted to rid himself of the affections of his baby sister by throwing her from a second-story porch at his parents' Bronx residence. Happily, Nunzio's baby sister survived when her fall was broken by a bush, although she was severely scratched and cut in several places (it was a thorned rose-bush).
Special Note of Interest:
Nunzio was only 4 years old at the time of the above incident.

Some of Nunzio's Favorite Quotes:
