Recently earned a new name ... "Darwin"!
People around here seem to have been bugged pretty bad by my generally depressed attitude. The last time I used my favourite remark, "Man, this is not just pathetic, its downright depressing!" dear old Shantanu got so bugged, he started looking for a new name.
Darwin, is a take-off on Marvin, the paranoid android, the perpetually depressed robot, from the Hitch Hikers' Guide, that goes "Here I am, with a brain the size of a planet, and all they ask me to do is open doors!"
"Shut up," Shantanu had said, "you think you are Marvin?" ... and I had remarked rather passionately that Marvin was better off than I was!
That's how I ended up with my new name ... Darwin! SameerDS - that's me! Know my middle name? Its DARWIN ... even Marwin's afraid of me!
