The Best 8 To 12 Hours Of My Life.

On the 1st of November, 1991, I did something that changed the course of my life forever. Actually, I did four things at once that changed the course of my life forever. Since that fateful event, I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of synaesthesia. I have also dedicated my life to using the hybrid 'ae' character in as many words as I can maenage.

During my presentation, I will talk a bit about this life-changing event and show the results of my endeavors. It will be a treat for both the cochleae and retinae.
