A really hoopy frood, he was very fond of deadlines ([[RidiculousProcrastinator he liked the whooshing sound they made as they flew by]]) and always knew where his towel was. [[note]]Actually, he didn't. That was where the joke came from: he could never, ever find his towel, and figured that it was probably symptomatic of the general disorganization of his whole life. Anyone who actually knew where their towel was, he reasoned, would have to be a really together person.[[/note]] His interests included evolutionary biology, software technology, Apple computers, the music of Music/PinkFloyd, Bach, and Music/TheBeatles, and SCUBA diving. He was involved in a BBC radio production (and then book) with Mark Carwardine called ''Last Chance To See'', where he made his case for the necessity of biodiversity and the need for conservation initiatives. He also considered himself a radical [[{{Atheism}} atheist]], but the "radical" bit was just to show people that he was serious about it (as opposed to merely being agnostic), not because he was intolerant or aggressive. If ever a human being was TooCoolToLive, it was him.
