Today's Dose of Doc-related Trivia

Since I was 13, I've been writing, and studying both psychology and how to be a writer. And when I say studying, I mean studying, not just an idle curiosity played out in momentary flights of fancy. I read the market reviews, the journals, I ordered sample copies from all over the globe, because it was what I wanted to do. In Career Education, I researched two careers: Literary Writer and Clinical Psychologist. Those of you who know me personally know that this is obviously not what I study in school - Mathematics and Computer Science. All of my application materials to Macalester indicate that I wanted to be a poet, not a mathematician / computer scientist.

Every truly serious mathematician I've ever spoken with about the trade has always considered themselves something of a poet. But in their hearts, I think math/cs people are Nockers (gratuitous Changeling reference, I know). Do Nockers write poetry?
