I used to think Downs Syndrome was caused by living on the downs in the countryside, so when we stayed at this place called Downs Cottage in Devon, I said to the landowners 'how can you be in charge of this place if you both have Downs Syndrome?' Needless to say, we never stayed with them again.

When I was young, after having discovered the planisphere, I used to believe that the world was flat. And when we studied the discovery of America, I didn't understand why all the class said that the world was round. I was and I still very obstinate. Finally, my mother succeeded in making me listen to reason, after 2 days of negociations.

I have often had strange associations with country names, like Kosov sounding like cassava, and macadamia sounding like Macedonia. There are many other Slavic or Balkan country names like this, such as Turkey and Hungary, that certainly does it for me.

When I was little I wanted to be an explorer. I figured 2D maps of the world were only showing half the Earth, because obviously the Earth is round, and that the other half hadn't been mapped yet. I wanted to be someone that discovered the other half of the Earth.
