I'm a British mathematician, been in the Netherlands for 35 years ("chercher la femme"). Recently became a double proud grandfather. Have a compulsion, but it's not secret, to want to correct miscarriages of justice involving abuse of science, see Dhamaka's plea

THE 9-11 was my 50th birthday. That's why I use it in my internet name, but English fashion, 11-9. The other part is my surname.

This weekend while we were away, a newspaper delivery boy noticed a suspicious object on a side-table inside, at the window next to the front door. He alerted the police. The police came, the street was cordoned off, the neighbours evacuated, the bomb disposal squad, an ambulance, a fire engine, and more police came.

PS .. the day before yesterday I discovered I was in fact the "suspect" in a case concerning possible violation of the law on ownership of forbidden weapons. That was a bit unsettling. But late in the evening we heard that the case had been dropped. Gulp. So all's well that ends well...

PPS By the way, for those who don't read Dutch, the suspicious object was a "surprise present" given to someone at a family "Saint Nicholas Party" some four or five years ago. We felt it was quite a work of art hence liked to show it to friends.

PPPS The foto above was taken 4 or 5 years ago, I was pleased to find someone did have a picture of it, since the suspicious object has been removed and presumably destroyed.
