Who is Mark Hunter?

Truly, as a personal identifier, "Mark Hunter" isn't as uniquely keyed as, say, "Kareem Abdul-Jabbar".

There are, in fact, more than a couple of guys named Mark Hunter here on Planet Earth (and at least two girls), but this site is only for one, very specifc, Mark Hunter.

No, not the talented forward and 1989 Stanley Cup Winner.

And No, not the angry teenage radio DJ from the movie "Pump up the Volume".

This site is for the OTHER Mark Hunter.

The smart, sexy one.

And if you don't know who that would be, well, then I just have to wonder...

"Why the hell did you come to his web site?"





Welcome. And Congratulations.

I'm delighted that you could make it. Getting here wasn't easy, I know.

In fact, I suspect it was a little tougher than you realize.

For you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms somehow had to assemble in an intricate and intriguingly obliging manner to create you. It's an arrangement so specialized and particular that it has never been tried before, and will only exist this once.

For the next many years (we hope), these tiny particles will uncomplainingly engage in all the billions of deft cooperative efforts necessary to keep you intact, and let you experience the extremely agreeable, but generally unappreciated state known as "existence".

Why atoms take this trouble is a bit of a puzzle. They ARE mindless particles, after all, and not even themselves alive.

It is a slightly arresting notion that if you were to pick yourself apart with tweezers, one atom at a time, you would produce a mound of fine atomic dust, NONE of which had ever been alive, but ALL of which had once been you.

Yet, somehow, for the period of your existence, they will answer to a single overarching impulse: to keep you...You.

The bad news is that atoms are fickle, and their time of devotion is fleeting indeed. Even a long human life adds up to only about 650,000 hours, and when that modest milestone flashes past, for reasons unknown, your atoms will shut you down, silently disassemble, and go off to BE other things.

And that's IT...for you.

Still, you may rejoice that it happens at all. Generally speaking in the universe, it doesn't...so far as we can tell.

- Bill Bryson, "A Brief History of Nearly Everything"
