Marty’s Paradox is brought to you by Martin Falatic


Hi there!  Glad to make your acquaintance! A brief history of me, in resume order:

  • Ideal growth conditions: Somewhere in the mountains of the Upper Northwest perhaps… somewhere without fire ants, earthquakes or hurricanes.  Tornadoes I can live with… thunderstorms I love, snow is beautiful, and a full dose of each season is best.
  • Habitat and range: San Francisco, California
  • Sustenance and foraging: I’m currently working as a software engineer
  • Early adulthood: I went to Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and managed to somehow end up with two degrees:
  • Adolescence: I grew up in the town of Gary, Indiana
  • Birth: early 1970 in the middle of a snowstorm.  Well, not out in the snow per se… it was in a hospital.  A warm hospital.  With comfy chairs and all that.  But I still had to cry about it.
  • Gestation: around the critical 3 month juncture, I may have heard the news as the first men walked on the moon (in a rather muffled way), thus sparking a lifelong fascination with science. Or perhaps that simply explains my lifelong fascination with the mysterious muted phrase, “Hoofson, der Beagle vas banded!”
