About Karl

Who is Karl Aquino?

Hobbies & Interests: I like to play basketball and I maintain a modest collection of widely circulated U.S. and Canadian coins.  The centerpiece of my coin collection is a Sacajawea $1 U.S. coin.  It is the only type of coin in my collection that is not widely circulated, and coincidentally, it is also the only U.S. currency that depicts a person of color.  I am also quite proud of my three Canadian toonies.  Pictures of my coin collection can be found in my photo gallery.

Favorite Historical Figure:  A tie between Bruce Lee and Harriet Tubman

Person I’d Most Like to Meet: Anyone who owns a bike

Favorite Star Trek Character: Mr. Sulu

Favorite Breakfast: chicken feet and tripe, with a big bowl of rice (preferably white)

Favorite TV Show: none

Celebrity I Most Admire: Kobe Bryant

Favorite Politician: Hugo Chavez

Favorite pastime: Wasting large quantities of non-renewable natural resources and fishing with live bait.

Most Valued Possession: I take great pride in owning a luxury automobile — a white, 1997 Acura TL with automatic door locks — that I was able to purchase using income generated by my various consulting activities. A picture of my luxury automobile can be found in my photo gallery.

Books I Recommend:  I don’t know for sure because I’ve never read them, I’ve heard these books are pretty good: The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon, A Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant, The Symposium by Plato, Totem and Taboo by Sigmund Freud, The Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy by Sir Isaac Newton, Troilus and Cressida by some English guy called “The Bard”, Maneater by Gigi Levangie Grazer, and A Night Without Armor: Poems by Jewel. If you do decide to read any of these books, please send me a one-page summary so I don’t have to read them myself.
