By Mr. P
  1. In 1980, I was working in the USA teaching Americans how to use firearms.
  2. I had a full gliding license before I was 17, but I still don’t drive.
  3. My first commercial software application was a 3D modelling system for the BBC Micro
  4. The first PC I owned was imported directly from the makers in China.
  5. I’ve escaped death by very small margins on numerous occasions. By being run over by a car, multiple extreme car crashes, a bus crash, bullet ricochet, nearly drowned by a panicking swimmer, and being trapped in a burning building set alight by an arsonist. Yet, I’ve never broken a bone in my body.
  6. I’m one of a very small number of people in the UK with a degree in Animation.
  7. The people I went to school and college are mostly massively famous. They include a rock star, a TV news reader, MP, fashion gurus (x2) and Hollywood cameraman. I’m not in contact with any of them.
  8. I once published a game though Electronic Arts.
  9. I’ve played in a football match inside the open fuselage of a transport aircraft at 35,000 feet.
  10. My name wasn’t originally Mark Pickavance
