. . . I think one of the first signs for me was the fact that I chose to sit around and read all the encyclopedias.
I did the same thing. Sometimes I'd take a volume of the World Book Encyclopedia into the bathroom with me, so the time I spent on the toilet wouldn't be wasted.

I was a confirmed sci-fi geek by the time I was 7 or so. I made a point of watching every science fiction movie or TV program. For my 10th birthday party, my mom ordered a custom-baked cake with the design of a rocket taking off on top.

. . .I've also been fascinated with fighter planes all of my life. I use to doodle them all the time.
I used to doodle pictures of Supercar all the time. And robots. And Edsels. For some reason, I was fascinated by the Edsel. I mean, how many grade schoolers in the 1950s and early '60s were Edsel freaks?
