Piel's Page

Hello! If you can read this, then you're probably wasting either your time or someone's money. :) My name is Pierre-Louis Constantin, and I can be found on undernet or infiniT's irc server as PieL. The rest of this page is a shallow rant about myself. Enjoy.

I have been known to answer to "Can I give you a hug?" and"Here's money, pal.", so you might want to try something like that.

This page would also be in french, but I have plenty of other things to do. Since I'm never satisfied with anything, this page is in permanent construction and migration.

Who am I?

I'm a 30 year old guy from Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.

I'm an informaticien agree (licensed computer scientist) with a masters' degree in Neural Networks, image processing and recognition.

Several people have made claims that I have mental powers, and they keep on believing it despite my telepathic suggestions that it's not true.

A full report on my mental powers would be too big to fit in here, but they range from control of radio waves to cat empathy, guessing a person's innermost secrets and catching flying rolls of toilet paper by the ends without looking. I'm also known to give good massages.

However I AM a skeptic (not registered yet :) so if you want to come and try to debunk any of those claims, you're welcome. :) Especially if you're a nubile girl. :)

A female friend once told me that The Odds song "Heterosexual man" reminds her of me, for some reason. :) I hope it was a compliment.

If you asked me which fictional character represents me the most, I would have to say Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac. (and not the real playwright of the same name :). And not for his nose either. Either him or Superman, but that's just the way other people see me.

Ok, that's enough about me - I lead a boring sheltered life anyways.

Yes, that grin has been officially declared as psycho. Don't pay too much attention to the picture, it's a bit dated.

What do I like?


I like to read old books. I also like to correct some myths about certain books (usually WaltDisneyisms).
