This is the new, improved, freshly entitled blog of Captain Maybe, traveller, teacher, geek, Prince of Procrastination, reader, writer, stranger in strange lands, genius, fool and variably hirsute gentleman. Me, in other words. My blog consists in part of the usual blogospheric material – a one-sided recapitulation of recent events in the author’s life for the purposes of keeping in touch with, and perhaps entertaining, friends, Romans, countrymen. In addition, there are a number of book reviews (and the occasional film and other species of review), quotations, interesting words, observations on random topics and so on and so forth.

The name ‘Infinite Probability’ is, of course, adatped from the Infinite Improbability Drive in Douglas Adams’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books. It doesn’t really mean much, but it goes quite well with my self-given moniker.

The header you see above these words is one of those almost unfeasibly beautiful images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, in this case of the Orion Nebula.

Please stroke my ego and leave me a comment.

    Hi there, Funny blog, I found the thing which give your chaos mage a run for his money, psionics it does all sorts of fun stuff. have fun

    Thanks, John. I’ve heard that psionics can really unbalance a game unless the whole thing is geared towards it. I think psionics is a little too science fictiony for a fantasy setting, though. But I’m sure it’d be interesting to try it.

    I enjoyed reading on your site. Keep writing. Do it for you or the universe 😉

    Bernhard, hello and thanks. I may just do it for me AND the universe.

    I live in Bali, Indonesia and am new to blogging.

    My English is still not very good, but I keep trying to make it better. I am very interested in poetry and write some myself, (mainly in my own language – sometimes in English, but that’s still hard for me).

    I like your writing very much and would love to stay in touch with you, both to share my writings and improve my own skills. I hope you don’t mind, or think me rude.

    Best wishes…

    Thanks for your comment. Your English seems very good to me. 🙂

    Hi Captain Maybe how are you love ?

  10. 5 July 2007 at 4:52 am

    Well, I suppose I’ve been better … but I also suppose I’ve been worse.

    Sean man! Cool blog! Good description for sure..
    I’m loving the pic though man..totally album cover stuff.
    I’ll have to keep coming back here..to check on your gas situation among other things..
    Keep it real man!

    Much to my embarrassment, I spent a minute or two wondering ‘Who do I know called Paul?’ However, I did eventually realise. Thanks for leaving a comment. The gas situation has now been resolved (I should write a post about that, probably); other situations are still ongoing (whatever they may be).

    I very much enjoyed your blog especially since I happened upon it randomly. And the picture is fantastic! I do hope that your experience with the drunken Canadian teacher doesn’t colour your impression of all Canadians however lol! I would also like to say that I am a Bakker fan as well. I live in the city in which he teaches and I have a signed copy of The Darkness That Comes Before. It is great to find a fan outside of the country though. Good luck with your remaining time!

    Thanks! Actually, all the Canadians I know like to drink – but that’s par for the course for young people earning generous wages in a foreign country, I suppose. I never saw the evidence of this guy being an alcoholic, but he seemed quite gentle-natured at other times.

    Only eight months to wait for The Great Ordeal.

    I don’t know what you celebrate, if at all, but I would still like to wish you a very Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas/Good Yuletide/Joyful Festivus….or a slightly late Happy Solstice lol! I celebrate a secular Christmas (is that even possible lol?!) simply out of family tradition but it is still a very special day to me; I wanted to be sure to pass on my best wishes to you in the spirit of the holiday. 🙂

    Or ‘Merry Krishna’ as someone told me in an e-mail. Thank you – I appreciate the thought. I’ve seen a few shops here in Lucknow bedeck with seasonal decorations, and also a large church was open. It all seems very incongruous.
