Roderick Kimball was born in BC, making him either ridiculously old, or simply Canadian. He loves making puzzles and recently published a book titled Path Puzzles (www.pathpuzzles.com). In his youth, Roderick was sometimes spotted on the slow end of a soccer pitch but more often on the fast end of a chess board. (Surely you've heard of the notorious Kimball maneuver, in which one opens a chess match by flipping the king's pawn into the air such that it lands, butter side up, on the king's fourth rank.) A curious child, Rod once temporarily blinded himself by connecting his top and bottom braces with a 9-volt battery. These days, Rod tours the world juggling with the Flying Karamazov Brothers and works at the National Museum of Mathematics. He is proud to say that his ancestry includes two very great grandmothers who were executed as witches and he once made bottled water come out Rosie O'Donnel's nose.
