Hello, world!

I'm a father of one pre-schooler and one toddler. My stake in this site is to learn from you, and also to contribute as much as I can!

Based on my own childhood and parenthood, my specialties are (among others): twins, languages, and international aspects. For the record, I'm an identical twin and married to a fraternal twin. I speak 4 languages fluently and I've lived in 5 countries (Europe, Japan).

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at even more SE sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

Outside of this site, I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment Where should boys aim their urine?
@Jasmine the surface is a nearly flat bowl, so there's about 3 millimeters of water, diameter maybe 10 centimeters. Hit that, and it'll definitely splash...

@Jasmine - what prevents the splash too? The shelf certainly doesn't, on the contrary. The higher elevation of the "target surface" means that more of the splashback leaves the bowl. The only way to avoid it is by sitting down.

comment Should I monitor my child's internet usage?
Unfortunately playgrounds can (and sometimes are!) littered with glass shards and used condoms. Still, probably better than g~cx (I've heard of it and I'm not going to look!) but not a lot.

@ratchetfreak, can confirm. The foam absorbs (most of?) the splashback, so this is valid.
