Monk E. Mind is a writer, science buff, and Old World Monkey.
His mother read a lot of science fiction when she was pregnant with Monk and so you might say he developed an interest in science fiction very early on in life.
He also loves science and has helped develop a Rational Scientific Method of Inquiry. Monk tells many stories about his journey. Here is a sample:
Chicken and A Typewriter
When I was in First grade and in love with the teacher with the Bird's Nest hair-do, I pulled a prank on a class mate and neighbor. I told him my cousins, whom I was staying with, had some very smart chickens. "So smart, that any one of them can spell your name!" Donny didn't believe a word of it. I said, "yeah it's true. Of course they can't hold a pencil, but they can type very accurately." I said I could prove it, and then bet him a dollar!
Donny took me up on my bet and got off at my bus stop quite a few blocks away from his. It would be worth it, I told him, If I was lying, he would get a dollar, and if I was telling the truth, he would see an amazing chicken, who could spell his name. He had nothing to lose!
He waited on Auntie Net's back porch as I retrieved the Underwood typewriter with a single piece of paper already in place. I put the typewriter on the ground and lured some chickens over with a can of corn, telling them I needed one of them to spell Donny's name..."After all," I told Donny, "you can't expect them to work for nothing!"
Donny watched as I put a kernel of corn on the D key. The closest chicken quickly pecked that piece of corn typing out the letter D. Donny groaned as I put another piece of corn on the O key... He knew he had been taken, and reluctantly handed me his dollar as he headed down the street.
